## The missing dollar

Three people check into a hotel room. The bill is \$30 so they each pay \$10. After they go to the room, the hotel's cashier realizes that the bill should have only been \$25. So he gives \$5 to the bellhop and tells him to return the money to the guests. The bellhop notices that \$5 can't be split evenly between the three guests, so he keeps \$2 for himself and then gives the other \$3 to the guests. Now the guests, with their dollars back, have each paid \$9 for a total of \$27. And the bellhop has pocketed \$2. So there is \$27 + \$2 = \$29 accounted for. But the guests originally paid \$30. What happened to the other dollar?
This riddle is just an example of misdirection. It is actually nonsensical to add \$27 + \$2, because the \$27 that has been paid includes the \$2 the bellhop made. The correct math is to say that the guests paid \$27, and the bellhop took \$2, which, if given back to the guests, would bring them to their correct payment of \$27 - \$2 = \$25.

## Miraculously unhurt

It was a sheer drop outside the building to the ground. Miraculously after he landed he was completely unhurt. Since there was nothing to cushion his fall or slow his descent, how could he have survived the fall?
Brad was so sick and tired of window washing, he opened the window and jumped inside.

## Store clerk

Elmer Johnson went to the hardware store to make a purchase for his house. He asked the store clerk, "How much will one cost?" The clerk thought for a moment and said, "Three dollars." Elmer Johnson, who looked a little puzzled said, "Well then, how much will twelve cost?" "Six dollars," replied the clerk. Elmer Johnson scratched his head and said, "If I were to purchase two hundred, how much would that cost?" "That," said the clerk, "will cost you nine dollars." What was Elmer Johnson buying?
