Two women apply for a job. They are identical. They have the same mother, father, birthdays, height, weight, etc... The interviewer asks, "Are you twins?" They say, "No".

Why did they say they weren't twins?

(please quote this riddle with your answer)
they were triplets. One of them was not there at the moment.

Riddles can be very useful in the classroom. They can be used as ice-breakers or to address stereotypes and cultural differences.

Please only use this thread to post riddles and their answers.
Two women apply for a job. They are identical. They have the same mother, father, birthdays, height, weight, etc... The interviewer asks, "Are you twins?" They say, "No".

Why did they say they weren't twins?
Because they were triplets.
