Does anyone remember the riddle in which three people rent a hotel room for the night and are charged £30. But just after they leave to go to the room the cashier realises he has overcharged them a certain amount and takes the amount he has overcharged them by up to them, but however the riddle is worded it seems that the maths dont add up.
Remember hearing it years ago and it had me baffled for days, but cant remember the details of it now, so if you could help me out it would be appreciated.

Also if you have any good riddles feel free to post em!
We'll be washed and buried one day my friend
And the time we were given will be left for the world
The flesh that lived and loved will be eaten by plague
So let the memories be good for those who stay
Three friends check into a hotel for the night. The clerk tells them the bill is £30, payable in advance.
They each pay the clerk £10 and go to their room.
A few minutes later, the clerk realizes he has made an error and overcharged the men by £5.
He asks the porter to return £5 to the friends.
The porter sees this as an opportunity to make £2 as he reasons that the three friends would have a tough time dividing £5 evenly among them; so he decides to tell them that the clerk made a mistake of only £3, giving a pound back to each of the friends.
He pockets the leftover £2.
Now, that each of the three has got a pound back, they each have paid £9 for the room which is a total of £27 for the night.
We know the porter pocketed £2 and adding that to the £27, you get £29, not £30 which was originally spent.
Where did the other pound go?

It's a paradox, the \$29 don't apply to the initial \$30 dollar payment
interesting riddle...got me thinking for a while.

here's one of my faves, my grade 6 teacher told me:

You give me air, and I breathe
You give me food, and I eat
You give me water, and I die.
What am I?

That's such a simple riddle.
Payment: 25 Pounds.
Bell boy: 2 Pounds.
3 guys in a hotel room: 3 pounds.
Total: 30 pounds.

The 2 pounds that the bell boy takes are part of the 27 pounds total, meaning, the payment for the hotel room, and the stealing bell boy.
There's no reason to add 2 and 27.
