FW: Engineers & Lawyers (fwd)
---------- Forwarded message ----------
Three lawyers and three engineers are traveling by train to a
conference. At the station, the three lawyers each buy
tickets and watch as the three engineers buy only a single
ticket. "How are three people going to travel on only one
ticket?" asked one of the three lawyer.
"Watch and you'll see," answers one of the engineers. They
all board the train. The lawyers take their respective seats
but all three engineers cram into a restroom and close the
door behind them. Shortly after the train as departed, the
conductor comes around collecting tickets. He knocks on the
restroom door and says, "Ticket, please." The door opens just
a crack and a single arm emerges with a ticket in hand. The
conductor takes it and moves on. The lawyers saw this and
agreed it was quite a clever idea.
So after the conference, the lawyers decide to copy the
engineers on the return trip and save some money. When they
get to the station, they buy a single ticket for the return
trip. To their astonishment, the engineers don't buy a ticket
at all. "How are you going to travel without a ticket," asks
one perplexed lawyer.
"Watch and you'll see," says one of the engineers. When they
board the train the three lawyers cram into a restroom and
the three engineers cram into another one nearby. The train
departs. Shortly afterward, one of the engineers leaves his
restroom and walks over to the restroom where the lawyers are
hiding. He knocks on the door and says, "Ticket, please."
