The Hotel Bill
A lady decided to give herself a big treat for her 85th birthday by
Staying overnight in an expensive hotel.
When she checked out next morning, the desk clerk handed her a bill for $450.00.
She exploded and demanded to know why the charge was so high. “It’s a

The clerk told her that $450.00 is the ‘standard rate,’ so she

Woman, “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.

He went on to explain that she could also have seen one of the
In-hotel shows for which the hotel is famous . “We have the best
Entertainers from the world over 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

The manager was surprised when he looked at the cheque. “But madam,
This cheque is for only $50.00.”
“That’s correct. I charged you $400.00 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..”
