Three dudes, while out at a convention, decide to share the cost of a room. The attendant says the room will be 30.00 so each guy gives 10.00. Later the attendant recalls the room only costing 25.00, so he tell the bell boy take this 5.00 up to the guys and split it three ways. On the way up the bell boy decides it to hard to split the five dollars three ways so he keeps 2.00 and them each 1.00. That makes the men paying 9.00 ea. which equals 27.00 plus the 2.00 the bell boy kept equals 29.00. Where'd the other dollar go?

The men paid \$9 each or \$27 minus the \$2 the bellboy kept= \$25 which was the real cost of the room

No, they spent a total of \$25, each received their dollar back, and the bellboy stole \$2. That's \$30.

The real question is why three men are sharing a room that can't have more than a single bed in it at a rate of \$25 a night.

I think froggy just wanted to share his fantasy of a gay 3-way and this was as good a way to do it as any.

What kind of shitty convention would be at a hotel with \$30 rooms?
