Friday Funny

My Dad has decided to join the, "contribute to funny" club and emailed a joke to me yesterday. I can't tell whether he did it to poke fun at my new profession or because he likes another one better. Either way... enjoy.

Three engineers and three accountants were traveling by train to a conference. At the station, the three accountants each bought tickets and watched in disbelief as the three engineers bought only a single ticket.

"How are three people going to travel on only one ticket?" asked one of the accountants. "Watch and you'll see," answered an engineer and then turned to board the train with his co-workers.

The accountants took their respective seats but all three engineers crammed into a restroom and closed the door behind them. Shortly after the train had departed, the conductor came around collecting tickets. He knocked on the restroom door and said, "Ticket, please." The door opened just a crack and a single arm emerged with a ticket in hand. The conductor took the ticket and moved on.

The accountants watched the deceit and agreed it was quite a clever idea. So after the conference had ended, the accountants decided to copy the engineers on their return trip and save some money (being clever with a buck, after all). When they get to the station, they bought a single ticket for the return trip. To their astonishment, the engineers didn't buy a ticket at all. "How are you going to travel without a ticket?" asked one of the perplexed accountants. "Watch and you'll see," answered an engineer.

When they boarded the train the three accountants crammed into a restroom and the three engineers crammed into another restroom nearby. The train departed the station and shortly afterward, one of the engineers left his restroom and walked over to the restroom where the accountants were hiding. He knocked on the door and said, "Ticket, please."

Have a great weekend everyone.
