A famous riddle may have been asked before.  Three guys walk into a hotel and ask for a room for the night the hotel representative says it cost $30 for the three of them so they each pull out $10 and hand it to the representative after they go to their room the representative of the hotel realizes there was a sale and it only costed $25 so he calls over a hotel employee and gives him $5 and tells him to give it back to those three guys the employee takes the $5 and heads to the room on the way to their room the employee decides to keep two and only give them back three since $5 cannot be split evenly among 3 people so in the end each guy got back $1 that means they each paid $9 9 times the three of them is 27 plus the two that the employee stole is 29 what happened to the 30th dollar
Each paid9 and the employee had 2 dollars. Makes 25. The 2 is supposed to be subtracted not added

They each paid $9 so that's $27, of that $27 $2 went to the rep and $25 went to the hotel.

In other words, they paid $27 for the room and the remaining $3 (of the $30) went back to them.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

This is just wording the question badly to make it sound more 'riddle-y'. The actual question is basically name a contronym (or autantonym). And there are many answers, though cleave is certainly a prominent example.

Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

'What' has 4 letters, 'sometimes' 9, but 'never' 5

ETA: This is another one that's worded badly to make it harder. The 'but' in the last part of the sentence doesn't make as much sense once you know what's going on.

Actually it has 2 letters
Actually 'it' has 2 letters

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Actually 'it' has 2 letters
Therefore, I'd word it differently to make it a bit harder, more "riddley", and throw people off.

What has 4 letters, sometimes 9, but never 4.   (since 'but will never have anything other than 3.  IOW, play off the 'but', not the 'never'!

what would you do if:
on a cold winter rainy -terrible weather- day, you drive down the street with your car passing by a bus shelter you see 2 people sitting there
1) an old and sick person who looks like he is about to die due to the -terrible weather- and needs a hospital ASAP.
2) a person from a different country you've been looking for a very a long time to speak with and is never here and now you need to grab the opportunity.
but the only problem is that in your car you have place "only" for 1 more person there is 'absolutely' no way another person could get into your car.

whom would you take?
I'm going crazy, wanna come along?

Let the friend take the sick person to the hospital and then come pick you up
