# Why the 7 Apples?

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?

• It looks like this is the first answer, if that is a tie-breaker when it comes to accepting an answer. – EKons Apr 15 '18 at 10:03

• How do you like them apples? – David Conrad Apr 16 '18 at 19:48
• 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. – Krishnabhadra Apr 17 '18 at 3:40
• Thank you @jkl3699 for accepting my answer! – QuantumTwinkie Apr 17 '18 at 13:52

Because

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

• 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 – Tas Apr 17 '18 at 4:25

Easy

An apple a day keeps the doctor away.

because

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

• Actually, I think JonMark's is the oldest – Prince North Læraðr Apr 15 '18 at 17:15
