Taxi Ride

A taxi driver was called to take a group of passengers to the train station. The station is normally an hour away, but with traffic being extra heavy, it took a full hour and a half. On the return trip the traffic was still as heavy and yet it took only 90 minutes. Why?




What Next?

It was confusing because you asked why the weight was different and it was the same.

kreed, he didnt "ask' about the weight of anything he said that TRAFFIC WAS EXTRA HEAVY not what was the weight of the traffic etc. check the teaser before you make a complaint, by the way nice teaser, i got it but i'd like to see more from you!

Man! Why can't people stop trashing on other people just because they have an easy teaser?? Go to the teasers, search for the hardest ones, and do those happily! Or look at how hard it is before reading it! I enjoyed it, though!

I agree... it's not a teaser, it's a simple question that requires minimal thought. Try again.

I believe that if you wrote 80 minutes and 1 hr 20 minutes, it would have fooled SOME people for longer than 5 seconds...
