Think hard about this one...

3 men walk into a hotel and ask for the manager. The manager isn't there, but the bellhop is. He says he thinks the room is $30/night. So, the 3 men each pay $10, and are given a key to the room. Later that evening, the manager returns, and the bellhop tells him about the 3 men. The manager says he overcharged, and the room is only $25/night. So, the manager gives the bellhop $5 to return to the 3 men. On his way there, the bellhop isn't sure how to split $5 three ways, so he decides to pocket $2, and give each man $1 back. In actuality, each men has now paid $9 each for the room, which totals to $27, plus the $2 the bellhop kept for himself, which adds up to only $29. Where's the remaining dollar to make it $30 even?
