There is a table which can sit 4 people. 2 people on the left side, and 2 people on the right side. 4 people were to meet each other on that table, it just so happens that they did not come and leave at the same time. Their order of the arrivals:

When one man came one was left.
When the second man came two were left.
When the third came two were still left.
When the fourth man came two were still left.

When they left the meeting:

When a man left one was left.
When a another man left one was still left.
When a third man left no man was left.
But then after that the last man left.


How is this possible?
