Going for the obvious - did someone have to put something in hock (pawn it)?

Was he an official ticket inspector? Or did he just pretend to be one? Or did you think he was pretending?

Did the ticket inspector suggest to forget about the fine if you give him a little bribe? and you would have given if you have had? but so, you complained, and the whole thing was more embarrassing for him than it was for you?

We have a winner so...

******SPOILER******

The lurking FA was that I was not fined at all. The conversation was something like this:

Agent: Your ticket!
Me: I don't have one. (Handing my ID card) Take the ID card and write down the fine.
Agent: But at least you have some money with you... and we'll forget the incident...
Me: No, I don't. Write down the fine
Agent: WHAT? People like you... Take your goddam card back, I'm not going to work for you... Who do you think you are? (Walks away)
Me: I am nobody. (Loudly, so that everyone can hear) In this country we are not even ALLOWED to be FINED?

He left at the first station, not without sending some "friendly" looks.

That's all. Thanks to all who participated and to Ostap for the final solve.
