An elderly lady decided to celebrate her 70th birthday by spending the night in an expensive hotel. When she left the next morning, the receptionist gave her a $250.00 bill. She exploded and wanted to know why the charge was so high.
“It’s a nice hotel but the rooms certainly 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’, so she insisted on speaking to the Manager.
The manager appeared and was announced by the front desk: “This hotel has an Olympic size pool and a large conference center, available.” “But I did not use it,” she says. “Well, they are here and you could,” explained the manager.
He further stated that she may have seen one of the hotel’s shows for which the hotel is famous. “We have the best artists in the world here,” said the director. “But I did not attend any of these shows,” she said.
“Well, we have them and you could,” replied the manager. Regardless of the arrangements mentioned by the manager, she replied: “But I did not use it!” And the manager responded with his standard answer. After a few minutes of discussion with the manager, she decided to pay, wrote a check and gave it to her. The manager was surprised when he looked at the check.
“But madam, this check is for only $50.00.” “That’s correct. I charged You $200.00 for sleeping with me,” she replied. “But I didn’t!” exclaims the very surprised Manager.
“Well, too bad, I was here, and you could have.” Don’t mess with Senior Citizens!!!
