I know this may be a pretty old riddle, but I am seeing if you can remember this:

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????

That's why is that. It was just "discussed" last week.

More importantly:

3 couples check into a motel: a straight couple, a gay couple and a lesbian couple. They check in at the exact same time but they check out at separate times. Which couple checks out first and why?

Answer: The gay couple because they packed their sh-t the night before.

Think outside the box people!

The straight couple, because they are deeply homophobic.

The gay couple because guys take way less time than girls do.
