A Phone Call AwaySituation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.
A man had flown to Chicago on a business trip. In the hotel, he couldn't sleep. So, he called someone on the telephone provided in the room, and once the person hung up, he fell sound asleep. The caller didn't even know the person on the other line. Who was the mystery person on the other end of the phone?
AnswerThe mystery person was the neighboring hotel guest. He had been snoring, and the man called him to tell him that. He stopped, to let the man fall back asleep, then he too, fell back asleep.
