Train Travel

A customer wrote to his local train company, complaining that delays and overcrowding meant that he had been unable to get a seat on a train for the past 2 years. He said he thought the transportation system was worse than that used by people 2000 years ago. The rail company wrote back , saying the customer had got his history wrong as the only public transport 2000 years ago was by foot. Not so, replied the customer, suggesting that the company referred to the Bible, Book of Numbers, 22nd Chapter, where it says that Balaam rode to town on his ass....."That, gentlemen, is something I have not been able to do on your trains for the past 2 years!!!!!
