This will mess with your head

Three men go into a motel. The man behind the desk said the room was $30, so each man paid $10 and went to the room.

A while later the man behind the desk realised the room was only $25, so he sent the bellboy to the three guys' room with $5.

On the way, the bellboy couldn't figure out how to split $5 evenly between the three men so he gave each man $1 and kept the other $2 for himself.

This meant that the three men each paid $9 for the room, which is a total of $27, add the $2 that the bellboy kept = $29

Where is the other dollar?

Hmmm. I did figure this out after a few minutes. Our old mate Google confirmed it for me ... ok, I need a beer now.
