A lady gives herself a treat for her 7pth birthday
A lady decided to give herself a treat for her 70th birthday by staying overnight in an expensive hotel.
When she checked out next morning, the desk clerk handed her a bill for $500.
She exploded, demanding to know why the charge was so high. The clerk told her $500 was the standard rate.
So she insisted on speaking to the manager.
The manager appeared, and was filled in.
“This hotel has an Olympic-sized pool, a gymnasium, a sauna and a huge conference centre, which are all available for use,” he said.
“But I didn’t use them,” she protested. ” Well, they are here, and you could have,” he explained.
He went on to explain she could also have seen one of the in-hotel shows for which the hotel was famous.
“But I didn’t go to any shows,” she protested again.
“Well, you could have,” the manager replied.
Since the manager would not be moved, she wrote out a cheque and handed it over.
“But madam,” said the manager,”this cheque is made out for only $200.”
“That’s correct,” she replied. ” I charged you $300 for sleeping with me.”
“But I didn’t!” exclaimed the very surprised manager. ”
Well, too bad,” she said. ” I was here, and you could have.”
