Great Expectations

My name is Mark Smith. I'm a guy who loves Jesus, His Word, and His Church. I am filled with Great Expectations for what the future will ultimately bring - Matthew 24:14.

Averil gave me an awesome game called MindTrap for Christmas. It's a bunch of word puzzles that are really fun to try to figure out. This puzzle is the craziest one we have come across so far. See if you can figure out the answer without typing it into google or cheating some other way!

Three men checked into a hotel room for which they paid $30. The next day, the manager glanced at the records and realized that the men had been overcharged. She gave the bellhop $5 to return to the three men. On the way to their room the bellhop decided to keep $2 for himself, and give each of the three men one dollar. The three men had now paid $9 each, or a total of $27. This, plus the $2 the bellhop kept makes a total of $29. What happend to the other dollar?
