    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.
