The Puzzler

RAY: And the answer is that I had entered the bank.

TOM: I figured that, but I still don't know what it means.

RAY: Oh, you don't? Why wouldn't the hardware store have these things? What significance could these things have? These things are situated so that one is five feet above the ground, the next thing is five and a half feet, and the highest one is six feet high.

TOM: Ah!

RAY: So, when the guy is making his escape with the bags of money, the teller can say, "...And he was over six feet tall."

TOM: Over six feet tall.

RAY: Or, "That little runt was under five feet."

TOM: Excellent!

RAY: Who's our winner this week?

TOM: The winner is Steve Vagner, or Wagner, from Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania.
