On the train to Tampere

Wow. The train conductor just swooped into the compartment singing.

"Go-ood morning! Ti-ickets please-ee!" he sang.

"A-at what ti-me shall we be in Parkano?" sang back one of the passengers.

"Te-en minutes late. Or perhaps no-ot." replied the conductor, ending with a high note.

You have to understand that this kind of stuff just does not happen in Finland, where it is uncustomary to even utter "please". I think most of the people in this train are very scared now...
