Not only is it cheating... but it's also plagiarism (of a sort)... no where does he mention that he ripped off this brain teaser from someone else. (Namely me, my boss, and a friend.)

    Let me put it this way. If you can conclusively prove that your boss was the first person to ever think of this problem, I will be more than happy to credit it to your boss, and mention your bosses name if I ever use it again.
      Well, you did actually use our wording. Not very subtle.

      Whatever, my annoyance has passed. I'm just a little disappointed. I liked the fact that this was a pretty good question that didn't have an answer online, somewhere, and wasn't something that people would have seen before. The idea was supposed to be that it was a question we could ask, and the person's response would be the result of their thinking about the problem, rather than a reflection of whether they had already seen this problem somewhere. Now that's lost. Oh, well... life goes on.

        I can only apologize for any harm I have caused you or your business. It was certainly not my intention. I have seen other solutions to this problem on line, while I was researching my original solution, so I assumed that it was not all that uncommon of a problem. Again, I apologize if this negatively affects your business, it was never my intention to harm anyone.
