What Did I Get Myself Into?

Entertaining policy for riding the Conway Scenic Railroad

I’m a geeky technical writer, which means that I read the fine print. It was entertaining for me to learn that when I purchased a ticket to ride the Conway Scenic Railroad in New Hampshire, I agreed to the following policy:

“Bearer may be called upon to chase cows from track, stamp out grass fires, shovel coal, evict hobos, carry water, punch tickets, or otherwise make oneself useful in promoting the welfare of the company.”
