A lighter note for the afternoon :)

12 posts in this topic

3 men go into a motel. The desk clerk said the room was \$30, so each man paid \$10 and went to the room.

A while later, the desk clerk realized the room was only \$25, so he sent the bellboy to the 3 guys' room with \$5.

On the way, the bellboy couldn't figure out how to split \$5 evenly between 3 men, so he gave each man \$1 and kept the other \$2 for himself.

This meant that the 3 men each paid \$9 for the room, which is a total of \$27.

Add to that the \$2 the bellboy kept and the total is \$29.

Where is the other dollar?

They only paid \$8.33 each (25/3). They each have \$1.00 and the Bell boy has \$2.00. That totals \$30.00

You have disinformation in your statement! You may have a chance as a reporter for NBC or National Geographic.

But if they paid \$10 and then got \$1 back ... 10-1 = \$9

The three men together are out a total of \$27 (the figure of \$30 is now irrelevant because \$3 was refunded). The desk clerk is holding 25 of that. The bell boy has the other \$2. RR.

Come on KiwiThumper. I said they each paid \$8.33 for the room. The rest they paid the Bell boy! (8.33 X 3)+ 2 = 27.

They paid \$27 but \$25 went to the room. If I go any further I will have to give up and claim that you win because you are an extermeme liberal. Can't win an argument with them.

If the room was \$25, each man paid \$8.33. After their \$1 refund, They paid \$9.33 x 3 = \$28. The Bell boy kept \$2, that ='s \$30

What the heck's going on if three guys are staying in one room? For \$25 bucks a night is has to be a single bed. Am I at the right forum? RR.

No they paid \$8.33 each for the room. \$0.67 each to the bell boy and each have a \$1.00 in their pockets. But I think they might all be gay!

You need to subtract the \$2 the bellboy kept instead of add it to the \$27. It was part of the refund.

You don't happen to work for the New Zealand version of the IRS, do you? Is this an audit?

Kiwi, if there is a dollar missing, I think the three queers used it to bribe the desk clerk into keeping quiet about what he saw when he walked in to give them their refund. :D
