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 toilet door and said, "Ticket,
please".
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 toilet
and the three engineers crammed into another one nearby. The train
departed. Shortly afterward, one of the engineers left his toilet and
walked over to the toilet where the accountants were hiding. He knocked
on the door and said, "Ticket, please."

I am hearing this joke since train was invented.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
