Where is the missing dollar?


A pizza costs $30. Three men agree, and each man pays $10 cash to split a pizza between them for dinner at a local pizzeria. The waiter realizes that he has made a mistake with the order; the pizza is on special for only $25. The waiter grabs $5 from the till to make up the difference for their order and walks towards the men's table. He cannot figure out how to evenly split the $5 between the three men, so he decides to give each man $1 and keep a $2 tip for himself. This meant each man paid $9 each for the pizza plus a $2 tip, which totals $29. What happened to the other $1?
