Entry #7

A riddle for you to ponder.

Three guys go to get a hotel room.
The clerk behind the desk says the room is $30 for the night so each guy pays $10 each and they head up to the room. The hotel manager tells the clerk that the room was only $25. The clerk gives the bell boy $5 to give back to the men in the room. On the way to the room the bell boy pockets $2 for himself and gives back $1 to each guy. Now each guy has paid $9 plus the $2 that the bus boy pocketed is $29. The three guys originally paid $30 so where did the extra dollar go?
