Bar lunchSituation 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.
I went into a bar during my lunch break to get some food. I ordered my dinner and went up to the bar for a drink. It being lunch time, there was quite a long queue. I got talking to another guy who was also on his lunch break, and he said that if I gave him the money for the drink he would get it for me and bring it over to the table. I was quite suspicious of this person, so I agreed out of curiosity to see what he would do. Five minutes later he came over to my table with a glass of water for himself and he gave me my drink. I counted the change he gave me which was also correct. He had done something dishonest and was going to profit from it, but how?
AnswerHe was having a working lunch and had got a receipt for my drink. He was going to claim expenses from his company for goods he never paid for!
