Here's a good riddle 3 MEN GO INTO A MOTEL. THE MAN BEHIND THE DESK SAID THE ROOM IS $30, SO EACH MAN PAID $10 AND WENT TO THE ROOM. A WHILE LATER THE MAN BEHIND THE DESK REALIZED THE ROOM WAS ONLY $25, SO HE SENT THE BELLBOY TO THE 3 GUYS' ROOM WITH $5. ON THE WAY, THE BELLBOY COULDN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO SPLIT $5 EVENLY BETWEEN 3 MEN, SO HE GAVE EACH MAN A $1 AND KEPT THE OTHER $2 FOR HIMSELF. THIS MEANT THAT THE 3 MEN EACH PAID $9 FOR THE ROOM, WHICH IS A TOTAL OF $27, ADD THE $2 THAT THE BELLBOY KEPT = $29. WHERE IS THE OTHER DOLLAR? I've been trying to figure this out for days. If you get it, feel free to post the answer. 
the room was $25  the men paid $27 due to the fact that the thievin' little crack addict bellboy stole $2 so of the original $30 the incompetent fleabag hotel has 25 the three men all sharing one room have 3 and the bellhop's dealer has 2

i just sorta got the answer that Hairyhandedgent got. They didn't know that the room was $25 dollars. they still thought it was $30. so a $1 refund seemed correct to them because they didn't know any other. 
where was the tip? the manager told them that they were charged only $25. add the $3 returned with the $2 kept by the bellhop, you come up with $30. 
The amount they paid: $9x3=$27 minus the $2 tip = $25 for the room.

$25 for the room + $1 returned + $1 returned + $1 returned $28 + $2 "tip" = $30 orginal amount paid or think of it like this Guys paid $27 for a $25 room. The bellboy kept the $2 extra as a "tip"

Of the original $30 motel has $25 each man has $1 bellhop has $2 25+3x1+2=30 
I turn polar bears white and I will make you cry. I make guys have to pee and girls comb their hair. I make celebrities look stupid and normal people look like celebrities. I turn pancakes brown and make your champane bubble. If you sqeeze me, I'll pop. If you look at me, you'll pop. Can you guess the riddle?
