Today’s #jokeoftheday is about three engineers and three accountants who boarded a train. However, the engineers were way smarter than their counterparts.
While attending a conference, three engineers and three accountants found themselves at the train station. They lined up ready to get their tickets and the accountants went first with each person buying a ticket.
However, when it was the engineers’ turn, the three of them bought one ticket. The accountants were confused and one of them spoke up, asking, “How are three people going to travel on only one ticket?”

One of the engineers answered urged them to watch and see. Once they boarded the train, the accountants took their individual seats while the three engineers trooped to the restroom where they stayed crammed in.
In no time, the conductor began walking around collecting tickets. He reaches the restroom and knocks on the door, yelling, “Tickets, please!” The door slightly opens and one hand sticks out handing the conductor the ticket.
Once the conductor leaves and the coast is clear, the engineers step out of the restroom and settle down in several seats. The accountants watch in awe and are impressed by how good an idea it is.
Once the conference was done, the two groups gathered at the train station. This time the accountants decided to purchase one ticket as a group. However, the engineers didn’t get any tickets at all.
The accountants were shocked and asked how they would board the train with no tickets. Again, an engineer told them not to worry and observe. Upon boarding the train, the engineers ran into the restroom.
The accountants followed suit, entering the next one. The train began moving and one of the engineers stepped out of the restroom and walked to the other one where the accountants were hiding.
The engineer knocked and yelled, “tickets please,” and the rest is indeed history. Another hilarious joke tells the story of an accountant and lawyer hanging out at the beach and sipping cocktails.
The lawyer started a discussion telling the accountant how he made money to come for the vacation. He explained that his downtown property in Memphis caught fire and he cashed out on the insurance.
The accountant went next saying that he also had a downtown property in Miami, so he was able to afford the trip with the insurance payout. The lawyer sipped on his drink and asked, “How do you start a flood?"
