3 guys on a syndicate shoot see a secondhand clay trap avertised in the local gun shop for £30 so they had a bit of a chinwag and decided it would be a good thing if they bought it between them and get a bit of practice in before the start of the season,
So they all put £10 a piece in cash together and sent the Shoot Captain into the shop to buy the trap.
He handed over the £30 to the guy behind the counter and walked out of the shop with the trap, on his way out he bumped into the shop owner and chatted for quite a while as he new him quite well and then left.
The owner of the shop then enquired with his employee as to how much they had paid for the trap to which he replied £30, The owner of the shop who was a decent guy said take a £5 out the till and go and catch him up and give him a discount.
So the Guy takes out of the till 5 £1 coins runs out of the shop and while doing so slips 2 £1 of the coins into his other pocket(He was a dishonest *******d) and catches up the guy with the trap and tells him the owner wants him to have a discount and hands him the 3 £1 being £3.00 so when he gets back he tells the others what had happened and that he had got the clay trap for £27.
He then gives each of his friends £1 coins back
So each of them had paid £9 for the trap
Now simple arithmatic tells me that 3x£9 =£27 plus the £2 in the dishonest persons pocket which adds up to £29 not £30 so where has the missing £1 gone?
I havent got it either
They were lucky i know seeing a trap for sale at that price I know that
