Fake Out

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.

Joesph walked Chuck, a potential new employee, through his company. He briefly went over the safety precautions of a couple machines, their uses, and regular day-to-day activity. Joseph was very impressed with Chuck's qualifications and knowledge on the workings of his business. Chuck was applying for a position in shipping. Joseph took him by the wall where a single dollar hung up. He proudly explained that it was the first dollar he ever made, almost 20 years ago, when the business first started. Finally Joseph brought the man outside and showed him his parking spot. Chuck thanked Joseph for the tour, but then directed Joseph to put his hands over his head.

What happened?

How would that refer to being a drug dealer? Wow. Interesting point of view. I agree with Ching Boss. And br0, I'm sure J0die agrees.

EASY! I got it immediately when i read "made"! The first time i read through, my brain registered "earned" so the second time, I got it! Yay! Nice one!

Nice one!! You really have to read this one closely to get the answer, otherwise you're left in the dust.

I thought it had something to do with counterfeit, but I didn't catch the "MADE" part until after I clicked the answer, though I guess that defeated the purpose cause it told me to look for the word...

Good teaser, Putter.

Easy, but terrible. If that's what Chuck calls "evidence", I have some bad news for him.
