Question

Guest

A woman was horrified to find a fly in her tea. The waiter took her cup and went into the kitchen and returned with a fresh cup of tea. She shouted, "You brought me the same tea!" How did she know?

She had already put sugar in it and when she tasted the new tea it was already sweet.

She left lipstick on the edge of the cup.

That's actually exactly what I thought initially, but I realized that there's a difference between recognizing that the waiter brought back the same tea and recognizing that the waiter brought back the same cup.

Think about how you drink tea - or coffee if you don't drink tea. How would you know it was your drink?

if she saw the tea with the fly in it why would she add sugar, unless she was blind which would mean she couldn't see the fly in the first place....

I found the same thing but with coffee!

And you are absolutely right, why would you put sugar in the tea/coffee if there was a fly in it... however, maybe that was her cunning plan, to make sure she won't be getting the same one!!!

perhaps she discovered the fly while she dumping the sugar in - the first time she really peered into the cup.
