PWT : Passanger without Ticket , Bad Luck

PWT : Passenger without Ticket This is what the TTI wrote on the Railway Fine Receipt. One of the embarrassing moment before I leave Mumbai.

Today 20th of Oct 2007, Saturday at 9am in the morning , Chembur Station , Mumbai I step down from the Harbour Line CST bound Local train from Belapur and was asked for the Local tain Ticket by the Ticket Checking Officer. For the last one year I am using the Regular monthly Pass of railway, and my travel ling schedules depends mostly on the time , Like before 8am in the morning I will go by Local train and if it exceeds than the option is by Bus and today I got late and waited for the Bus. No waiting more than 3-4 minutes I changed my decision and turn up for Train and taken one Ticket to Kurla from the automatic ticket vending machine @ Sanpada station, just because I don't have the ready Cash in Hand to Renew my Pass .

But the things just go another way when you are sure of the perfect way, I searched through out my trouser Pocket , Shirt Pocket and my Bag but in Vein. I guess the Ticket was swiped out , while I was drawing out my earphone form the shirts pocket in the Train.Hundreds of dual eyes are gazing towards me , when I was searching badly for my Ticket. The situation reminds me of the butcher shop where people waited for the healthy goat . I convinced the TTI, who is also very co-operative because of my Regular Pass which expired yesterday only, and I went to the nearby UTI ATM to fetch the Fine Money.

Whatever be the case it was a bad day start for me and Have to pay a fine of Rs 260 /= and renewed my Pass at the counter before leaving with an unhappy face. This is Life ...
