A Father's Nightmare

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 young woman tells her parents that she is engaged to a nice man whom she just met, and upon getting to know him the parents learn that he spent 6 months in a juvenile detention facility, 2 years in prison and 2 years in a mental facility for the criminally insane. Upon learning what the man did to get into each of these facilities, they gave their daughter their blessing to marry him. Why?



Answer

The young man was employed in each of these facilities. The girl's parents were pleased to know that in order to work at these facilities he had gotten a degree in substance abuse counseling, gone to the police academy to get certified as a corrections officer, and ultimately become a nurse practitioner via night-school to get a job at the mental facility.

(In case you're wondering, the total amount of time he spent at each facility is given above based on his hours worked, so for example he actually worked for a year and a half at the juvenile detention center.)
