I have worked in a ticket office, I have been a guard, and now I am a driver. I know all the tricks people try on to avoid paying a fare. I am also human and I know sometimes things don't go to plan so you make allowances


Sure I could show you a few new ones ?


When I used to check tickets you would always get the chancer without one, possibly Issac who knows, first you would get the ticket dance where they pat down every part of their body trying to find the elusive piece of paper. After that rigmarole had finished they would look at you and usually say something along the lines of "well what it is right" and I used to stop them right there and say "OK here's a little bet. If you come up with an excuse I have never heard I will give you the ticket for free. If I have heard it before the fare is double. Wanna play ?"
They usually just paid up !!



Err.............just what are you trying to imply hereShocked?

I've no doubt that many people do try and avoid payment, a lousy service and sky high fares are the usual excuse, equally many people nick stuff from Tesco but you can imagine the uproar if they insisted on searching everybody as they left the store.

It's up to rail companies to seek out those who avoid payment and not tarr everybody with the same brush.
