The missing dollar.

Three salesmen leaving the airport, call a cab, and ask to be taken to their hotel. Upon arriving at the hotel They ask the cab driver what they own. He says $30., which they pay ten dollars each. They head up to their hotel room, and while the bellboy is getting their bags, the cab driver says to the bellboy, hey, I charged them too much. How about giving them this $5. back. On the way to their room, the bellboy thinks, there is no way three guys can split $5, so I'll keep $2, and give them @1. back. That way it will be even. He does this, which means that the three salesman, which gave $10. each, got $1. back each, means they spent $9. each. Sooo, 3x9= $27., the bellboy kept $2., that makes $29. Where is the missing dollar?

Oh no you don't... Its that extra dollar that couldn't be split (5 between 3) and 2 for the bell hop.

$25 for the cab
$ 3 for the salesmen ($1 ea.)
$ 2 for the bell boy
$30.00 I actually went to school a few days.

It does get you to thinking doesn't it... I noticed that 10 people had read it without commenting...maybe they couldn't figure it out.

No way that cabbie was going to cough up five bucks in the first place! It's like getting change from a hooker...never gonna happen. Not that I'd know from personal experience...I've got this friend who told this story one time...
