The Lighter Side

Stories, anecdotes and jokes from our readers that illustrate the humorous side of the martial arts.

Think This One Over

Three karate students travel together to Chicago to train in their organization's headquarters on Saturday. When they arrive in the city, they go to the hotel to check in. They plan to share the same room. The desk clerk quotes a rate of $30.00 for the night. They pay him and go to their room.

But, then the clerk remembers there is a weekend special room rate of $25.00 a night. Trying to correct the situation he gives five one dollar bills to the bellboy to take to the guest's room. On the way there, the bellboy says to himself, "three people can't divide five dollars evenly between them," so he takes two dollars for himself and when he gets to the room he gives each karate student a one dollar refund. So, each of the karate students paid nine dollars.

But if each of the students paid nine dollars, together they paid $27 dollars and the worker kept two dollars for himself. That totals $29.00. So where did the extra dollar go?
