Fine then

Yesterday there were ticket inspectors on the train. First time in three years. That’s a 1/1000 event. 

I had not validated my ticket. I have perhaps not validated my ticket about 30 times in three years. All for good reasons. 

Yesterday it was because I didn’t want to miss the train (!). That’s 3/100 chance I didn’t validate my ticket. 

The chances I would get caught by a ticket inspector? 

A 1 in 30,000 event. That’s pretty unlikely. 

Chance I would get off the fine: 50:50. 

I made it. By being charming.
