This incident made his mother buy him another After that, he locked himself in the train toilet and he got stuck. The ladies panicked. The conductor helped him out. Instead of being punished, the boy got a bar of chocolate for his suffering. The worst thing that he did was that he pushed the button which stopped the train. That delayed the arrival of the train at Bucharest. When the conductor checked who was guilty for stopping the train, Goe remained unpunished again because he pretended sleeping in his grandmother’s arms. Eventually, Goe and the ladies arrived at Bucharest, beginning their “journey” through the capital. MR. GOE Goe was a ten-year-old boy. He was spoiled, rude and he also had low grades at school. Goe’s mother, grandmother and Mrs. Mita decided to take Goe to the capital – Bucharest – hoping that the trip would help him make it to the next grade. While they were nervously waiting for the train, they argued about the pronunciation of the word “sailor”. Eventually the train arrived and they found their places with the help of some kind teenagers. Meanwhile, Goe was rude towards a man calling him: “Hey, you, ugly man!” Throughout the journey the boy kept on behaving inadequately; he put his head out of the window and as a consequence he lost his hat along with the train ticket.
