Solve this riddle & you're a genius!

3 MEN GO INTO A HOTEL. THE MAN BEHIND THE DESK SAID THE ROOM IS 30.00 SO

EACH MAN PAID 10.00 AND WENT TO THE ROOM.

A WHILE LATER THE MAN BEHIND THE DESK REALIZED THE ROOM WAS ONLY 25.00

SO HE SENT THE BELLBOY TO THE 3 GUYS' ROOM WITH 5.00

ON THE WAY THE BELLBOY COULDN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO SPLIT 5.00 EVENLY

BETWEEN 3 MEN, SO HE GAVE EACH MAN A 1.00 AND KEPT THE OTHER 2.00 FOR

HIMSELF.

THIS MEANT THAT THE 3 MEN EACH PAID 9.00 FOR THE ROOM, WHICH IS A TOTAL

OF 27.00, ADD THE 2.00 THAT THE BELLBOY KEPT = 29.00

WHERE IS THE OTHER POUND?

each guy paid 10 so each guy is -10, hotel is +30, (-3*10)+30=0
bellboy takes refund of 5 so each guy is still -10, bellboy is +5, hotel is now +25, (-3*10)+5+25=0
bellboy gives each guy a dollar so each guy is now -9, bellboy is +2, hotel is still +25, (-3*9)+2+25=0

don't add the bellboy's 2 to the 3*9, subtract it

There is no missing . The reason its "missing" in the riddle is because the math is presented incorrectly. The bellboys 2 should be subtracted from the 27, not added.

Each man should have paid 8.33 not 9.00 (8.33 x 3 = 25)
They should have received a refund of 1.67 each. (10.00-8.33 = 1.67) (1.67 x 3 = 5)
They received instead 1.00 each.
(1 x 3 = 3.00 + the 2.00 from Bellboy = $5)
(25 + 5 = 30)

There was a stripper convention going on at the hotel and the bellboy put 1 pound in some girls
g-string. And for extra credit, I think Neil McCauley was hosting the stripper convention.

Funny someone mentioned my name along with stripper in the same sentence, because ironically this guy I've recently met told me the story of how he met his gf at a strip club near this club we were at in downtown LA last night. Check out how unconventional this story is, they've been dating for 3 years, and she quit stripping recently to be an escort for this alleged drug dealer kingpin, the guy pays her for her time (sleep with her of course) about 3 times a week. I've met her like 2 times and shes pretty hot, I give her a 7, not bad for a lady with a kid. We've been going out about 2-3 times a week lately hitting up the clubs in downtown and Hollywood and supposedly when he comes out, shes on her "dates". Pretty sick. Anyway, last night at Opera I met this smoking hot just barely turned 21 half asian/peruvian girl from Costa Mesa. I mean this chick was super hot, and very young, can't believe how young a lot of these girls are going out nowadays. She asked for my number at the end of the night and a ride for her and her milftastitic friend to their car and again I fit 4 people into my D90 with only 3 seats As we got out, she had to pee so I helped her out from the back and as she was getting off the rear seat I got a quick flash of her blue thong, it was awesome. I didn't get dirty with her, just a little on the dance floor but hopefully she'll party with us this week, I have to get wisdom teeth pulled out today so there probably will be no partying for me this weekend.

I'll solve it.... it's false!

nothing in the UK is that cheap, for 30 you'd be staying in a cardboard box, then Gordon Brown would tax you for the privelage then give said tax money to some polish or muslim immigrant, also your car and house too.


Plus, if 3 men walked into a hotel, the chap behind the counter would probably refuse to serve them, claiming they were gay and it infringed his civil liberties to actually rent them a room.

the 3 men would counter claim, stating that they'd been emotionally scarred and could no longer work, and thus be legible to claim more benefits from Gordon Brown (these benifits that i pay as a working tax payer....but never manage to get any back for myself!!)

welcome to England!!

I had 2 removed this year. one pulled out in about 20 seconds, by a georgeous blonde dentist who i never danced with or watched pee.
the second had to be broken up into pieces, so i was knocked out for an hour or so while they did it then stitched my gums back up.... i never saw that dentists thong either. i think it was because he was a bloke.

although he may have been wearing one... i didn't ask.
