This riddle has gone VIRAL all over social media the last few days. While it is not a new one, it has completely blown up and has left people scratching their heads.
The riddle originally came from a woman named Lacey Read who posted the riddle on Facebook. The answer to the riddle is surprisingly easy….only if you’ve had someone point it out. But once you figure out what it is, you’ll be kicking yourself for not noticing it sooner.
Here it is:
Lacey noticed the sign as she was walking down the street and decided to snap the picture and share it on Facebook.
Within one week’s time, her post was shared over 200,000 times and garnered over 45,000 reactions.
Still having a hard time? Here’s a hint…
Have you figured it out yet? Don’t worry if you haven’t! Took me a little bit too! It’s a bit tricky to solve unless someone helps break it down so let’s do that.
WHAT has 4 letters. Literally. Right?
S-O-M-E-T-I-M-E-S as you can see has NINE letters.
Getting it now? So obviously you know the last part…
But ‘never’ has five letters. Those five letters, of course, being N-E-V-E-R.
So simple right. Sometimes we over work our brains and think things MUST be more complicated than they actually are. Not always the case.
