A man travelling by train asks the ticket collector what time the train stops at Victoria.
“Sir, we don’t stop at Victoria.”
“But I have to get off there!”
“Well, there might be one thing I can do. I might be able to get the engineer to slow down the train a little. Then I can dangle you out the door and lower you onto the platform.”
“Will that work?”
“It’s worth a try.”
As they approach the platform, the train slows down from 100km/h. The ticket collector hangs the man out the door. The man starts running in mid-air as quickly as he can. “Run faster! Faster!” the collector yells.
He lowers the man further down until his shoes touch the platform. Then his shoes start to smoke! The heels of his shoes come off! He’s running at 60km/h. He’s made it! He starts to slow down. The other passengers stare in amazement.
As the last car goes by, a hand grabs the man by the shirt collar and lifts him right back into the train. As he’s helped back on the carriage, the gent who picked him up says: “Man, you’re lucky I was here to help! This train doesn’t even STOP in Victoria!”
