    On a train to a large computer convention there were a bunch of
    computer programmers and a bunch of computer engineers.   Each of
    the programmers had a train ticket.  The group of engineers had
    only ONE ticket for all of them.  The programmers started
    laughing, figuring the engineers were going to get caught and
    thrown off the train.
    When one of the engineers, the lookout, said "here comes the
    conductor", all of the engineers went into the bathroom.  The
    programmers were puzzled.

    The conductor came aboard, said "tickets please" and got tickets
    from all the computer programmers.  He then went to the bathroom
    and knocked on the door and said "ticket please".  The engineers
    stuck the ticket under the door.  The conductor took it and moved
    on.   A few minutes later the engineers came out of the bathroom.
    The computer programmers felt really stupid.
    On the way back from the convention, the group of programmers
    decided that they would try that method, too.  They bought one
    ticket for the whole group.  They met up with the engineers in the
    same car.
    Again, the programmers started snickering at the engineers.  This
    time NONE of the engineers had tickets.  When the lookout said
    "Conductor coming!",  all the engineers went to one bathroom and
    all the computer programmers went to the other bathroom.

    Before the conductor came on board, one of the engineers left
    their bathroom, knocked on the programmers bathroom, and said
    "ticket please."
