The Websters’ Busy Day

Mr. and Mrs. Webster were on a holiday shopping excursion. On their way to the car after leaving the store, Mr. Webster complained he was tired from carrying so many packages. Mrs. Webster, the kindly thing that she was, replied, “Quit your complaining Walter! If you gave me just one of your packages, I’d have twice as many as you. And if I gave you one of mine, we’d have the same.”

How many packages were Mr. and Mrs. Webster each carrying?

Mrs. Webster was carrying 7 packages and poor old Mr. Webster was laden with 5.

Thanks for the comment. After reading what I wrote again, I agree with you. It was an attempt at humor but it wasn’t funny and I’ve removed it.
