Next time you think your hotel bill is too high,
you might want to consider this...A husband and wife are traveling
by car from Key West to Boston.
After almost twenty-four hours on the road,
they're too tired to
continue,and they decide to stop for a rest.
They stop at a nice hotel and take a room, but
they only plan to sleep for
four hours and then get back on the road. When
they check out four hours
later, the desk clerk hands them a bill for$350.00.
The man explodes and demands to know why the
charge is so high.
He tells the clerk although it's a nice hotel; the rooms
certainly aren't worth $350.00.
When the clerk tells him $350.00 is the
standard rate, the man
insists on speaking to the Manager.
The Manager appears, listens to the man, and then
explains that the hotel
has an Olympic-sized pool and a huge conference
center that were available
for the husband and wife to use.
"But we didn't use them," the man complains.
"Well, they are here, and you could
have," explains the Manager.
He goes on to explain they could have taken in one
of the shows for which the hotel is famous.
"The best entertainers from
New York, Hollywood and
Las Vegas perform here," the Manager says. "But we
didn't go to any of those shows, "complains the man again.
"Well, we have them, and you could have," the
Manager replies. No matter
what amenity the Manager mentions, the man
replies," But we didn't use it!"
The Manager is unmoved, and eventually the man
gives up and agrees to pay.
He writes a check and gives it to the Manager. The
Manager is surprised when he looks at the check.
"But Sir," he says,
this check is only made out for $50.00."
"That's correct," says the man."
$300.00 for sleeping with my wife."
"But I didn't!" exclaims the Manager.
"Well, too bad," the man replies." She was here and you could have."
