Get me off this train

One day a man took the train from Paris to Frankfurt. When he got in, he told the ticket man: “Sir. I really need you to do me a favour. I have to get down this train in Mannheim, but I’m very tired and will surely fall asleep. So what I want you to do is to wake me up in Mannheim, because I have to close a business there and it is very important for me. Here are 100 francs for the favour. But let me warn you that when woken up, I sometimes get really violent. No matter what, get me out of this train in Mannheim. Is that clear?”

The ticket man agreed and took the 100 francs. Later, the passenger woke up, and realised he was in Frankfurt.

He was mad at the ticket man and started yelling at him. “Are you stupid or something? I paid you 100 francs so that you wake me up. You didn’t, so I want my money back!”

While the man was yelling at the ticket guy, two other guys who were also in the train were looking at them. One turned to the other and said: “Look at this guy. He is mad!”

To which the other replied: “Yeah! Almost as mad as the guy they made get out of the train in Mannheim.”
