This is the phase you will need to get through
     very quickly now. It’s already too late to plead
ignorance, or a special case. You’ve strayed in-
     to the grey zone between care factors. On one
hand: zero. And on the other: none. Someone
     is about to tap you on the sholuder, asking for 
something: papers, identity, drugs. It doesn’t
     matter what they want exactly, only how you
react. It must be in time. It must seem casual, 
     beyond effortless. You must act as if you truly 
could not care less. This is good. This is very, 
     very good. As a reward, please find two single
bus tickets enclosed. The first one will get you
     to the station. The second has already expired.
