# Guinness or Stout?

Two Strangers enter a pub.Yhe publican asks them what they would like.First man says "I'll hava a bottle of stout",and puts $2 down on counter. Publican:"Guinness at$2 or Jubilee at $1.50?" First man:"Jubilee". Second man says "I'll hava a bottle of stout,"and puts$2 on the counter,without asking him, the publican gives him Guinness.The second man is not a regular customer,nor did he give any indication as to what he wanted.

How therefore did publican know?

Sort by:

He put out coins rather than just bills, like one dollar bill and four quarters. The publican knows if the second man had wanted a Jubilee, he would have just left two quarters off and given exact change. Then he must have wanted Guinness.
