Here is a teaser how can you see someone complain and not hear them. if you were deaf you would have to lip read so yes you can see someone complain

Nice one! I was thinking in terms of Australian dollars and American dollars and went in the wrong direction.

i either went with that the money went to one of the pair, or that some of it got lost on the conversion rate

Nice. They could also be man and wife
