GOOD TEASER

Two dads and two sons walk into a jewelery store and look at four different watches. After a while the salesmen sells them four watches. Once all of them have there watches they leave the store. Only three watches leave the store, How is this possible?


The answere in a couple days!

Perhaps there are three generations entering the store. A man, his son, and his grandson. The son is both a son (to the elder man) and a father (to the young son).

I agree with fishyrican, it is a grandfather, his son and grandson.

This was my first thought. But, 4 watches were sold, 3 left the store.

My theory: they are 4 seperate people, but, one of them is the salesman and was opening the store for the day. They all buy their watches, but the salesman has to stay and tend the store for the rest of the day. *shrug*

yeah, that's what i thought too....but it just seems too boring of an answer to be what he's looking for.

Very simple...only three people entered the store...a grandfather, his son, and the grandson....the grandfather and father are both farhers, and the father and son are both sons....ergo two fathers and two sons, yet only three people....just because they looked at four different watches does not imply that they purchased four watches.
