The Bet

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 bet a store owner $500 that he could balance a [the store owner's] vase on his head and walk 200 meters. The store owner agreed because it was so completely obvious he could not. He grinned and walked only 1 foot before the vase fell. The store owner smiled and laughed as he accepted the money from the man. But, the man was grinning the biggest smile a person would ever see. Why?


Answer

The guy had bet his friends $2000 that he could break the store owner's vase and not only would the store owner not mind, but he would be happy about it.
