at the beginning of this month the condition was quite hectic for me, because i had to move to my new apartment, and taking care of all the new stuff. Couldnt believe how unlucky we were, during our last week in the old apartement 5 lamp were broken! 5!
back to the title,
when we move to the apartment, i must buy a monthly train ticket because there is no way i would walk 3 km every morning to my language course. To celebrated our new ticket, we decided to visited IKEA, just for eating their delicious swedish meatball! OH GOD SO LECKER!
then this one friend, who had live longer in German, said to us “hey with your student ticket, you could bring a companion during weekend for free!”
me “really? are you sure?”
friend “very sure! looks i even bring the information booklet and you can look by yourself”
me *look at the booklet half eyed* “well okay sure. then come with us to IKEA”
then we went to IKEA, enjoying their swedish meatball, and by the time we must took our train home, i saw the ticket officer just right before we ride the train.
I asked my friend “hey there is ticket officer inside. Are you SUREEEE you are safe without ticket?” FYI. I always feeling nervous when i saw a police man, or another officer with uniform. IDK what causing this fear. but, yeah i always had this stupid insecurities with them.
friend “its okay dont worry”
then we rode the train. sitting peacefully with innocent smile in our face.
theeen! the officer came to us. as i predicted before.
my husband gave the ticket and our id to the officer, and this friend of mine. He was smiling ear to ear and speaking with full of confidence “i was with them. Student ticket allowed to take 1 person for free right?”
the officer nod. smile. and go.
GOD. am i the only one who are extremely overreacted in this situation?see nothing wrong!!!
then we continue our conversation, and suddenly i saw the officer came back to our direction and bring a thick book.
i know. at that moment. something is wrong. very wrong.
officer “hello. can you read german?”
friend “sure” —still smiling as if nothing wrong
officer “you can read by yourself in this book that only student ticket plus could bring 1 person for free. but you could not do it with your normal student card”
me *extremely nervous. mouth gap. panic face* basicly all three of us were stunned, with stupid face, and could not saying anything.
officer “its okay. this time i would not give you a penalty but please make sure there wont be next time”
all 3 of us still could not said anything, we were too surprise to gave a human response.
officer “okay then may you have a good afternoon”
then he leaving peacefully.
and we were like..WHAT HAPPENNNEDDDD!!!!!
omg thanks God the officer was so nice to us and didnt gave the penalty, altought it was clearly our fault to not read the information booklet clearly. And he just leave like that? I didnt know whether it was because of our innocent face? or our stupid response? or he pity us? idk
but we sure were lucky! maybe it was for the exchange of our bad luck with lamp in old apartment? i always believe that when you were extremely unlucky, you will be lucky in another time for exchange. Fair Trade people.
thanks dear officer, if you by accident read this, i just want to said may God bless you and sorry for our stupidity. Cheers!
