The Hotel BillAn 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 centre 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 are so famous. "We have the best entertainers from all over the world 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 the Manager still unmoved, she decided to pay, and wrote a cheque and gave it to him.
The Manager was surprised when he looked at the cheque. "But madam, this cheque is for £50."
"That's correct I charged you £200 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.
