You're playing a game of bridge with 4 people. You're dealing the cards, when suddenly the phone rings and you go pick it up. When you come back to the table, you can't remember who got the last card. How do you finish dealing the cards quickly and without counting the cards of any player, with everyone getting the same cards as they would have had you gone uninterrupted?

Well I don't know bridge...but I'm guessing you'd count the number of cards left in the deck. Assuming you remember to whom you dealt first, you could figure it out.

That's a sure way, but too slow...
