A doctor and a bus driver are both in love with the same woman, a girl named Sarah. The bus driver had to go on a long bus trip that would last a week. Before he left, he gave Sarah seven apples. Why?

    $\begingroup$ I appreciate the simplicity of this puzzle. But it would have been better if the profession of both parties were not mentioned in the question. It would have been fun to see how many people correctly guesses about the second party being a Doctor. $\endgroup$ Apr 17, 2018 at 3:40

Because

An apple a day keeps the doctor away so he gave 7 apple for 7 days.

    $\begingroup$ I don't think it's necessary to give the tick to the FIRST answerer, when both answers appeared so close together. I think it's up to the OP to pick the better answer; however, in my opinion, this answer betters answers the question because it explains why 7 apples $\endgroup$

it is a well known fact that an apple a day keeps the doctor away - which is obviously what this bus driver wants!
