    $\begingroup$ 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. $\endgroup$ – Krishnabhadra Apr 17 '18 at 3:40

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 $\endgroup$ – Tas Apr 17 '18 at 4:25


An apple a day keeps the doctor away.

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