Three engineers and three accountants were traveling by
train to a conference. At the station, the three accountants
each bought tickets and watched as the three engineers
bought only one ticket.
"How are three people going to travel on only one ticket?"
asked an accountant.
"Watch and you'll see", answered an engineer.
They all boarded the train. The accountants took their
respective seats, but the three engineers all crammed into a
rest room and closed the door behind them. Shortly after
the train departed, the conductor came around collecting
tickets. He knocked on the restroom door and said, "Ticket,
The door opened just a crack and a single arm emerged
with a ticket in hand.
The conductor took it and moved on.
The accountants saw this and agreed it was a quite clever
idea. So, after the conference, the accountants decide to
copy the engineers on the return trip and save some money
(being clever with money, and all that). When they got to the
station, they bought a single ticket for the return trip. To
their astonishment, the engineers didn't buy a ticket at all.
"How are you going to ride without a ticket"? said one
perplexed accountant.
"Watch and you'll see", answered an engineer.
When they boarded the train, the three accountants
crammed into a restroom and the three engineers
crammed into another one nearby. The train departed.
Shortly afterward, one of the engineers left his restroom
and walked over to the restroom where the accountants
were hiding. He knocked on the door and said, "Ticket,

It was the day of the big sale. Rumors of the sale and an
advertisement in the local paper were the main reasons for
the long line that formed in front of the store by 8:30, the
store's opening time. A small man pushed his way to the
front of the line, only to be pushed back amid loud and
colorful curses. On the man's second attempt, he was
punched square in the jaw and knocked around a bit, then
thrown to the end of the line again. As he got up the second
time, he said to the person at the end of the line: "That does
it! If they hit me one more time, I don't open the store!"

Job Application:
Two young engineers applied for a single position at a
computer company. They both had the same qualifications.
In order to determine which individual to hire, the
applicants were asked to take a test by the department
Upon completion of the test, both men had each missed
only one of the questions. The manager went to the first
applicant and said, ‘‘thank you for your interest, but we've
decided to give the job to the other applicant.''
"And why would you be doing that? We both got nine
questions correct," asked the rejected applicant.
"We have based our decision not on the correct answers,
but on the question you missed," said the department
"And just how would one incorrect answer be better than
the other?" the rejected applicants inquired.
''Simple,'' said the department manager, ''Your fellow
applicant put down on question..5, 'I don't know.' You put
down, 'Neither do I.'''

Two women were comparing notes on the difficulties of
running a small business.
"I started a new practice last year," the first one said. "I
insist that each of my employees take at least a week off
every three months."
"Why in the world would you do that?" the other asked.
She responded, "It's the best way I can learn which ones I
can do without."

A Rabbi and a Priest were sitting in front of a church and
they each had charity boxes in front of them to collect
money. The church goers that were passing by couldn't
believe the nerve of the rabbi, and purposely threw large
sums of money into the priest's charity box to spite the
rabbi. Finally one of the passer-by had sympathy on the
rabbi, and advised him, "Go to a synagogue and collect
there, you'll have more success." The Rabbi thanked the
passer-by, and then turned to the priest and said, "You here
that, Yankel; he's telling us how to do business."

A man was looking to hire a driver for a bus tour business.
Three men applied for the job. He calls one into his office to
interview him. The man says that he can put the wheels

employer is very impressed. He calls another man in. This

drive, and not fall off. The employer is again very
impressed. He calls the last man in. He says, "I heard what
the other two guys said, and I don't think I could match
them. I usually drive in the middle of a bridge".
