 How To Get Free Train Tickets!

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?"
 asks one of the three lawyers.

"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 has 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."
