Ok… This Riddle Is KILLING

Ok… This Riddle Is KILLING Me. Please Help!
Ok, my good friend Darren Conley sent me this riddle… and for the life of me I can’t figure it out. Is there a basic flaw in our system of math? PLEASE, if you can solve this problem email the answer to me! Here’s the riddle:

3 MEN GO INTO A MOTEL. THE MAN BEHIND THE DESK SAID THE ROOM IS $30,

SO EACH MAN PAID $10 AND WENT TO THE ROOM.

A WHILE LATER THE MAN BEHIND THE DESK REALIZED THE ROOM WAS ONLY $25,

SO HE SENT THE BELLBOY TO THE 3 GUYS’ ROOM WITH $5.

ON THE WAY THE BELLBOY COULDN’T FIGURE OUT HOW TO SPLIT $5 EVENLY

BETWEEN 3 MEN, SO HE GAVE EACH MAN A $1

AND KEPT THE OTHER $2 FOR HIMSELF.

THIS MEANT THAT THE 3 MEN EACH PAID $9 FOR THE ROOM,

WHICH IS A TOTAL OF $27,

ADD THE $2 THAT THE BELLBOY KEPT = $29.

WHERE IS THE OTHER DOLLAR?
