    The Hotel Bill

    Next time you think your hotel bill is too high you
    might want to consider this...

    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. 'I charged you $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.'

    Ha. I've sent doctors bills for my time before, when I've had to sit in the waiting room hours past my appointment time. Gets their attention, anyway!
