    Old, easy riddle. What is it?
  5. The letter E!
  6. The missing dollar!

    Three friends check into a motel for the night and the clerk tells them the bill is $30, payable in advance. So, they each pay the clerk $10 and go to their room. A few minutes later, the clerk realizes he has made an error and overcharged the trio by $5. He asks the bellhop to return $5 to the 3 friends who had just checked in. The bellhop sees this as an opportunity to make $2 as he reasons that the three friends would have a tough time dividing $5 evenly among them; so he decides to tell them that the clerk made a mistake of only $3, giving a dollar back to each of the friends. He pockets the leftover $2 and goes home for the day! Now, each of the three friends gets a dollar back, thus they each paid $9 for the room which is a total of $27 for the night. We know the bellhop pocketed $2 and adding that to the $27, you get $29, not $30 which was originally spent. Where did the other dollar go????

    Bit long but... oh well
  7. Each person paid 10 dollars. The actual charge is 25. Five dollars goes to the bellhop. This means 25 of it is with the clerk, and 5 with the bellhop. Then, the bellhop gives 3 of the 5 back, and pockets the rest. Which means 25 with the clerk, 3 with each of the people, and 2 with the bellhop. Tada!

    I suppose you heard the one about the person who goes to the 30th floor when it rains, but when it is sunny, goes to the 15th then walks the rest of the way up?
  8. Short man. When it rains he uses his umbrella to reach the 30th floor button.
    Sunny day, cant reach
  9. Yeah, I figured you would know that one.

    Do you know what a tillie is? I'll give you an example. A tree is a tillie, but a leaf is not. Now you try your hand at a tille, and I'll let you know if it is one.

    A bookshelf is a tillie, but an awning is not.
  15. Well that's what I learned in English...
