Three Traveling Salesmen at a Hotel (No homo)
Three traveling salesmen arrive at a hotel.

One room sleeps three and costs $30.

They decide to split the room and pay $10 each.

They go to their room and go to sleep.

The hotel clerk later realized the room was supposed to be discounted to $25 because of some bull shite promotion.

He wanted to refund the $5 to the men, but he couldn't split $5 between three people easily. So, he decided he'd just give them each back a dollar and pocket the leftover $2 to himself.

So, that's exactly what he did. He knocked on the door, the sleepy salesmen arose, he explained the situation, and gave them each back $1.

The room was $25.

Each salesman has now paid $9 for the room ($28).

The clerk pocketed $2. ($28-$2 = $26)

Where did the extra dollar go?

Either rolled up real tight to snort some coke, or up your ass. Maybe both, who knows.

He woke them up to give them a dollar?

Two women go on a business trip. One has sexual feelings for the other. She starts... "I'll be frank."

The other one replies, "No! I'll be Frank."

The problem is NP-complete, and I just don't have the time to try it.

So, that's exactly what he did. He knocked on the door, the sleepy salesmen arose, he explained the situation, and gave them each back $1.

The room was $25.

Each salesman has now paid $9 for the room ($27)..

The clerk pocketed $2. ($27+$2=$29)

Where did the extra dollar go?

There is no missing dollar

25+3=28

28+stolen 2 = 30

You said it yourself

Again, 28+2=30
