Five young Scotsmen and five young Englishmen happen to be traveling via train to have a golf weekend.
The Scots had their golf clubs and golf bags, but only one ticket between them.
Just before the conductor came through, all the Scots and their golf equipment piled into the toilet stall at the back of the car.
As the conductor passed the stall, he knocked and called, ‘Tickets, please!’ One of the Scots slid a ticket under the door.
It was punched, pushed back under the door and when it was safe, all the Scots came out and took their seats.
The Englishmen who observed this were tremendously impressed by the Scots’ ingenuity.
The Next golf outing trip the Englishmen decided to try this themselves and purchased only one ticket.
They noticed that, oddly, the Scots had not purchased any tickets this time.
Anyway, again, just before the conductor came through, the Scots piled into one of the toilet stalls, the Englishmen into other.
Then one of the Scots leaned out, rapped on the Englishmen’s stall and called ‘Ticket, please! ‘
When the ticket slid out under the door, he plucked it up and swiftly closed the door.
