BosGuy brain teaser

riddle, exercise for your brainEach Friday morning I post a riddle to get you to think outside the box and exercise your brain. If you are stumped, share it with a friend or colleague and see if you can figure out the answer together.

I’ll confirm answers in the afternoon so don’t worry if you don’t see your comment posted right away. I want to give everyone a chance to guess.

Some of you may recall this riddle, which I post around this time each year.

This week’s brain teaser:  While changing a tire a motorist accidentally dropped all four wheel nuts into the sewer grate and try as they might, they could not retrieve them. The motorist thought they would be stranded on the roadside until they came up with this brilliant solution which let them drive to the nearest service station. What was the motorist’s solution?
