The Hotel Bill

A lady decided to give herself a big treat for turning 70 years old by staying overnight in an expensive hotel. When she checked out the next morning, the desk clerk handed her a bill for $250.00.

She was enraged and demanded to know why the charge was so high. "It's a nice hotel but the rooms certainly aren't worth $250 for just an overnight stay! I didn't even have breakfast!"

The clerk told her the $250 is the 'standard rate,' so she insisted on speaking to the manager.

The manager appeared and, forewarned by the desk clerk, said, "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're here, and you could have," said the manager. He went on to explain that she could have also seen one of the in-hotel shows for which the hotel is famous. "We have the best entertainers from the world performing here."

"But I didn't go to any of those shows," she said.

"Well, we have them, and you could have," said the manager.

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, wrote a check, and gave it to him.

The manager was surprised when he looked at the check. "Madam, this check is for only $50.00."

"That's correct," she said. I charged you $200.00 for sleeping with me."

"But I didn't!" said the very surprised manager.

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

Don't mess with senior citizens.
