3 INDIANS and 3 FRENCH are travelling by train to a Cricket match at the recent Olympic Games. At the station, the 3 FRENCH buy a ticket each and watch as the 3 INDIANS buy just one ticket for them all. "How are the 3 of you going to travel on only one ticket?" asks one of the FRENCH. "Watch and learn," answers one of the INDIAN. They all board the train. The FRENCH take their respective seats but all 3 INDIANS cram into a toilet and close the door behind them. Shortly after the train departs, the conductor comes around collecting tickets. He knocks on the toilet door and says, "Ticket please. " The door opens just a little and a single arm emerges with a ticket in hand. The conductor takes it and moves on. The FRENCH see this and agree it was quite a clever idea. So after the game, they decide to copy the INDIAN style on the return trip and save some money. When they get to the station, they buy one ticket for three on the return trip. To their astonishment, the INDIANS don't buy ticket at all!!! How are you going to travel without a ticket?" says one perplexed FRENCH. "Watch and learn," answers an INDIAN. When they board the train the 3 FRENCH cram into one toilet and soon after the 3 INDIANS cram into another nearby toilet. The train departs. Shortly afterwards, one of the INDIAN leaves the toilet and walks over to the toilet where the FRENCH are hiding. He knocks on the door and says, "Ticket please." The door opens just a little and a single arm emerges with a ticket in hand. The INDIAN takes the ticket and goes back into his toilet. Praise the Indian!!! So don't copy blindly.......
