Twelve, Twelve, and Thirteen?Situation 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.
On my 12th birthday, my dad took me to see his friends at work. One of them gave me 12 pencils and another gave me 12 quarters (adding up to $3). Another one - my dad's favorite employee, gave me 13 cookies.
What was my dad's favorite employee's job?
And, knowing that all the employees worked in the same building, what were the jobs of the person that gave me pencils and the person that gave me money?
Hint12 is a dozen!
AnswerMy dad's favorite employee's job is a chef/baker. He gave me 13 cookies because 13 is a baker's dozen.
The job of the person who gave me pencils is the waiter and the one who gave me quarters is the cashier.
My dad, the manager, works at a restaurant, diner, or bakery - whatever you may call it.
