The Coffee Mystery

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.

It was a dark and gloomy morning when Anna woke up. "I am glad I don't have to go to work today," Anna thought, as she made her morning coffee. As Anna put sugar into her coffee mug, she noticed something was wrong. The sugar did not dissolve! Why?

I love the misleading stuff, such as " im glad i dont hve to go to work today"

@braingle100: You thought Anna's thoughts were misleading? Gosh, I just put it in there to make my teaser sound better, not to make it misleading or anything, but thanks!

I thought it was that it said in the coffee MUG, not the coffee

Don't people put their coffee in their mug then they put in the sugar?

I have to admit that if I had forgotten to add water to my coffee mug, I don't think "How odd; the sugar isn't dissolving" would be my first reaction. Fun teaser though; nice job!

I have the same thoughts as talan, though I don't drink coffee. For your first teaser, though, it was fun.

It doesn't have to be boiling water, just water is enough to dissolve sugar. And who be stupid enough to be confused of his sugar not dissolving when he sees he didn't put water in.

You ruined my good mood...

to bigbanggoo. The teaser never states she added water of any sort, or that she was surprised that her sugar had not dissolved, only that she noticed something wrong, the question was why did the sugar not dissolve. The question and answer are sound.
Good work mj1321
