TRAIN TICKET Three women and three men are travelling by train to the football
match. At the station, the three men each buy a ticket and watch as the
three women buy just one ticket.
'How are the three of you going to travel on only one ticket ?' asks

'Watch and learn,' answers one of the women.
They all board the train. The three men take their respective seats
But all three women cram into a toilet together and close the door.
Shortly after the train has departed, the conductor comes around, collecting
tickets. He knocks on the toilet 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.

When they get to the station they buy a single ticket for the return
trip but to their astonishment, they see that the three women don't buy any

'How are you going to travel without a ticket ?' says one perplexed
'Watch and learn,' answer the women.
When they board the train, the three men cram themselves into a
toilet, and the three women cram into another toilet just down the way.
Shortly after the train is on its way, one of the women leaves her
toilet and walks over to the toilet in which the men are hiding.
The woman knocks on their door and says, 'Ticket, please.'
