The RULE: In order to solve it, you are allowed only to ask me yes/no questions. And I may answer only No, Yes and Run-time error (in case neither Yes nor No fit).

Here's the riddle:

A little girl and a little guy were walking and suddenly wanted some peach juice. The girl said: "I want two glasses of peach juice". The guy said he wanted one.

They go to a bar and the boy buys five glasses of peach juice, but takes only three glasses, leaving the other two on the counter.

He gives two glasses to the girl, as she asked, and takes one for himself (as he wanted).

QUESTION: What's the matter? Why did he do so?
Did the boy say something like "Two glasses of peach juice for my friend, and the same for me [ . A | ; one | : one | - one ] glass of peach juice."?

(Ok, I remember asking whether the boy had asked for five glasses of juice at once ... just wanted to check )
Then what could be the reason?

Does one of them stutter?
-One-one-one-one-one glass of-of-of juice...
-Here you are, five glasses!
-D-d-d-d-damn!

Are the glasses they left on the counter for someone else?
Did they pay for all of 'em, or only the for the ones they drank? (3 of 'em)
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
Tanit: «Did the boy say something like "Two glasses of peach juice for my friend, and the same for me [ . A | ; one | : one | - one ] glass of peach juice."?» — No. And I don't understand the structure is square brackets...

Kooyeen: «Then what could be the reason?» — Run-Time Error 222.

«-One-one-one-one-one glass of-of-of juice...» — No. A clever attempt though!

«Are the glasses they left on the counter for someone else?» — No.

«Did they pay for all of 'em, or only the for the ones they drank? (3 of 'em)» — For all of them.

P.S.: BTW, here's a little hint: Tanit once asked an interesting question, which is connected (although somewhat indirectly) with the "mystery" you're trying to discover...

But don't get stuck on that, continue with your investigation.

PS : I've edited my last post
«Was there a special offer , like ( buy three and you'll have two more free glasses ! ) ..?» — No. BTW, this question is one of the most frequent...

P.S.: Thanks! Now _my_ last post doesn't do much honor to me... But don't even hope I'll edit it!
