Riddle I made up last night

January 21, 2011

So, I made up a riddle last night in the car while driving home from work. It’s the type of riddle that when you know the answer you will be like, “duh”, but it may trip you up. Here it goes:

Lois and Cheri are both going to visit their friend Ashley. Lois leaves the house at 11p.m. and it takes her 2 hours to get to Ashley’s house. Cheri leaves the house at 12p.m. and it takes her 1 hour to get the Ashley’s house. Who gets to Ashley’s house first?


Like I said, some of you will see the answer instantly, but some of you will not. Let me know what you think the answer is.

    Well, it all depends.

    Did Cheri leave at 12pm… which is 11 hours prior to the 11pm that Ashley left.. or is it the next day 12pm which is like 13 hours after the 11pm Ashley left?

    Then, of course… if you meant it to be two hours apart… then maybe Ashley stopped off at Cheri’s place for a quick chat and they both arrived at the same time?

    Really… it all totally depends 😉

      It is meant to be the same day. The riddle is in the fact that most people forget that 12 p.m. occurs before 11 p.m.
