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?

Divide £25 by 3 = £8.3333333

They each got back £1 = £9.3333333

£9.3333333 x 3 = £28

£28 + Bell boys £2 = £30

Its a simple matematical construct error

The hotel charged £25 and the belboy aquired £2 = £27 total cost, not £30 !

I think the bell boy should be sacked the thieving little fecker.
He wouldn't get his hands on my suitcases!!
