Ticket becomes tique

A ticket is required

Sometimes I really wonder how many Spanish words were imported from English. There are plenty of words with common roots, (like biology-biología) but every now and then I encounter a word in Spanish that I think is almost certainly a bastardization of its english equivalent. Spaniards almost never pronounce the ‘t’ at the end of a word (such as chalet), so the English ticket become Spanish tique.
