Eating For Free?

Trick brain teasers appear difficult at first, but they have a trick that makes them really easy.

A family of eight were eating at a nice hometown diner. After all of them had their fill of grub, they received the bill. The bill ended up being exactly $69.69, but the family left the diner without paying a dime. They were not arrested for not paying the bill, in fact, their waitress wished them a good night before they left. How did they get away with a seemingly free meal?

There was a teaser extremely similar to this, but it was in situation and the submitter's answer was they had a gift card. Many people, myself included added comments that it would be a good trick teaser if they "literally" didn't use a dime in the payment process. Are you the same submitter? Just curious.

Yes, I just took a quick look. The other is called dash and dine in situation. I'm glad you changed it. I like this one better.

yeah, I remember reading dash and dine, so at first I thought that this one was a repeat too.

(It's dine and dash).

I like this teaser better, and just decided there was no real way to really change the other one to this, so I just submitted this one.

How did the waitress get a .31 cent tip?????

$0.31 can be easily made with 3 dimes and a penny; 6 nickles and a penny; a quarter, nickle, and a penny; 2 dimes, 2 nickles, 1 penny; 1 dime, 4 nickles, 1 penny.

NO WAITRESS RECEIVING A $0.31 TIP FROM A PARTY OF EIGHT WOULD WISH THEM A GOOD NIGHT.

QUITE OBVIOUS, VERY EASY. (ANY PAYMENT WITHOUT USING A DIME WORKS)

Any payment without using a dime would work, like that one person said, but that means if you guessed another payment without using a dime that would also be right! I figured it out quickly, but I liked it! I've read a lot of your teasers and I really like them!

Another big SNIFFer. For the waitress to get 31 cents, she would have to make change for the family, so bizarre views of not spending dime become even weaker.

I got the teaser, but not sure I agree with all of it.

The waitress wished them a good night? Not on a $.31 tip she didn't.

Easy! Im not critisizing or anything but i dont think u needed to say about the waitress being unhappy!

The thing is, when I submitted it I sarcastically put that she was very happy with her small tip. However, it seemed to have been changed in the editing process for some odd reason.

lol they could have paid with 31 pennies (even though that is against the law in some places)

Why did waitress say good night pleasantly if she was unhappy about tip?
