Unseated Man

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.

A man goes in to a theater to watch the opera. He finds that a man is sprawled over many chairs (including the man's chair). The man says, "Excuse me, please get off my chair." The other man just groans. Again he asks, "Sir, if you don't get off my chair I'm afraid I'll have to call the manager." Again the man groans. A couple minutes later, the man along with the manager and two security guards, go to the area where the man was sprawled. The manager asks, "Sir, may I see the ticket of where you sit?" The man couldn't do anything, just point upward and grumble, "t-t-he bal-co--n-n..." At that moment the man faints and is taken to the hospital. Where did the man come from and why was he sprawled on the chairs?

is it just me or is this teaser truly pathetic?

It wasn't stellar, or difficult, but I don't think I want to get in the habit of calling anyone's effort to entertain other people on their own free time "pathetic". Not all of yours are winners there, kebab-boy.

Give the guy a break, he tried.

Let me guess, you made it up.
Jul 20, 2002

ummm...I'm not trying to be mean...but there's no real brain teaser in that's just plain common sence.

No offense, or anything, but...ah...duh. I aplaud your efforts though.

You leave off the letter "y" from the word balcony and, miraculously, think that there is actually a mystery here?

Extrammi, I agree with you. But at least the submitter tried.

Pretty Easy! I thought someone threw him!

It would have been a little harder if the word balcony was never said

This was painful to read with all the grammar errors.
Jun 24, 2007

Yeah, like everyone said, this isn't even a teaser.

If you take out the grumble and just have him point up, then it might qualify. Seriously, try it out.

Who were the people who edited this? And the man must have been demented, because there's a groaning man in his seat and all he can think about is calling the manager? I would have called the ambulance, if I were the man. You could also try giving names to the characters, and leaving out the balcon part.

That is why I HATE sitting in the front row of the balcony.
