Tickets Please

Three Jews and three gentiles are traveling by train to a conference. At the station, the three gentiles each buy tickets and watch as the three Jews buy only a single ticket.

"How are three people going to travel on only one ticket?" asks one of the gentiles.

"Watch and you'll see," answers a Jew. They all board the train. The gentiles take their respective seats but all three Jews 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 gentiles saw this and agreed it was quite a clever idea.

So after the conference, the gentiles decide to copy the Jews 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 Jews don't buy a ticket at all.

"How are you going to travel without a ticket?" says one perplexed gentile.

"Watch and you'll see," answers a Jew. When they board the train the three gentiles cram into a restroom and the three Jews cram into another one nearby. The train departs. Shortly afterward, one of the Jews leaves his restroom and walks over to the restroom where the gentiles are hiding. He knocks on the door and says, "Ticket, please."
