As Krist says, you cannot have one rule for one and another for someone else - however the occasional use of common sense and an appeals proceedure that is seen to be fair cannot go amiss.
As far as I understood the conductors do have some room to apply
common sense. For example, if you enter Switzerland with a Milano -
Spiez ticket and want an extension to Interlaken they will sell you
that. Even if you've already changed in Spiez. The same for tourists
who got lost.

But the problem is when someone comes with a story that the conductor
himself cannot verify. Do you expect the conductor to make assumptions
on your honesty based on your appearance?
