************************************PLEASE READ IT COMPLETELY****************************

I was offered a job with a huge MNC. So, I had to move to my house to collect my documents. It was on Saturday, and my joining was on Monday.

My train was from Kolkata station(KOAA). I reached Kolkata station by a local train. When the TTE asked for the ticket, I showed him what I had. The ticket was not printed properly, now what is my fault in that? He refused to give me entry. After a heated argument, It occurred to me it was useless arguing with him.

As the leaving time was nearing, I decided to rather pay the fine and board the train. My job was much more precious than that paltry fine.

############NOTICE HERE############

As I paid him the money he refused to give me any proper documents, rather he just put some sort of sign behind an expired ticket. When I told him that I would complain to his senior about this. He grabbed me by my collar and took me to the lockup and threatened to put me behind the bars.

If that would have happened, not only I would have lost my job. But the worst case would be me being unable to apply for any further jobs.

I had no other option but to pay him the bribe.

EVERYONE IS CONNECTED, FROM POLICE TO TTE TO HIS SENIORS. EVERYONE.
