A restaurant starts a marriage anniversary promo

Mon Aug 11, 2008 5:21 pm  by tartle

A famous restaurant starts a special marriage anniversary promo to the couples on Thursdays who carry their proof of marriage...50% discount on meals only on Thursdays. A couple enters the restaurant on Thursday, tells the manager that they got married on a fine Sunday 28years back hearing this the manager chased away the couple without being served. Why?

Cos he worked out that if they were married on a Sunday 28 years ago, that their anniversary could not be on a Thrusday that year.

Isn't it the case that, every 28 years, dates will fall on the same day?

It would be every 7 years, but the leap years throw it out. This is regulated every four cycles of 7 years.

So, what happened on a Sunday 28 years ago, should be a Sunday this year.

(The exceptions are if the 28 year period falls over 1700, 1800 or 1900, which are not divisible by 400 and therefore not leap years)

Or maybe he chased them away because they didn't carry any proof they've been married for 28 years.
