- 7. The ground-down mother of a persistently demanding five-year-old says..
sweetheart it's whatever you want it to be, just please let mummy have 5 minutes peace & quiet.

For him there are no doubts: the glass was empty when he took it away; it is full in the bill that he brings you.
- 12. The entrepreneur sees the glass as undervalued by half its potential.
- 13. "Is the half-empty/half-full glass really that important? I mean... really? Think about it. If fact, let's not. Let's set that particular issue aside for a few moments and talk about what's really bothering you.."

The directors would consider the problem to be above the pay grade of those assigned root cause analysis tasks.
- 18. The algebraic simultaneous equation theorist says that if the glass is equally half full and half empty, then..
half full(b) = half empty(a);

i.e. Full equals Empty!
- 19. The 'perfect' 1950s housewife would not leave the glass sitting there long enough for anyone to consider the question, but would scoop it up, wash it up, dry it to a gleaming shine and put it back in the glass cabinet in a jiffy. No half-full or half-empty in her world... just a full glass or an untidy one.
- 20. The same glass..
The same amount of water
None of these are right;
none of these are wrong
They are just different !!
