The Hotel Bill

An older lady decided to give herself a big treat for her 70th birthday
by staying overnight in a really nice hotel.  When she checked out the
next morning, the desk clerk handed her a bill for $250.00.

She demanded to know why the charge was so high. “I agree it’s a nice hotel, but the rooms aren’t worth $250.00 for just an overnight stay!  I didn’t even have breakfast.”

The clerk told her that $250.00 is the ‘standard rate’, and breakfast
had been included had she wanted it.  She insisted on speaking to the
Manager.

The Manager appeared and, forewarned by the desk clerk, announced: “This hotel has an Olympic-sized pool and a huge conference center which are available for use.”

“But I didn’t use them,” she said.

”Well, they are here, and you could have,” explained the Manager.

He went on to explain that she could also have seen one of the in-hotel shows for which they were so famous. “We have the best  entertainers from the world over performing here,” the Manager said.

“But I didn’t go to any of those shows,” she said.

“Well, we have them, and you could have,” the Manager replied.

No matter what amenity the Manager mentioned, she replied, “But I
didn’t use it!” and the Manager countered with his standard response.

After several minutes’ discussion, and with the Manager still unmoved,
she decided to pay, wrote a check and gave it to him.  The Manager was surprised when he looked at the check. “But madam, this check is for $50.00.”

“That’s correct I charged you $200.00 for sleeping with me,” she replied.

“But I didn’t!” exclaimed the very surprised Manager.

“Well, too bad, I was here, and you could have.”

Don’t mess with Senior Citizens!!
