The hotelbill

An old lady decided to give herself a big treat for her 85th birthday by staying overnight in an expensive hotel. 

When she checked out next morning, the desk clerk handed her a bill for $450. She exploded and demanded to know why the charge was so high.  It’s a nice hotel but the rooms certainly aren’t worth $450 for just an overnight stay!  I didn’t even have breakfast.”

The clerk told her that $450 is the ’standard rate,’ so she insisted on speaking to the manager.

The manager appeared and, forewarned by the desk clerk, informed the woman:
”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 the hotel is famous.
”We have the best entertainers from the world over performing here,” 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, with the manager unmoved, she decided to pay; she wrote a check and gave it to him.

The manager was surprised when he looked at the check.
”But madam, this check is for only $50.”

”That’s correct. I charged you $400 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!
