THE HOTEL BILL !!
« Reply #1 on: March 02, 2006, 10:33:11 PM »
 Next time you think your hotel bill is too high...you might want to
 use
 this logic!

 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 takea
 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.

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.

 When the clerk tells him $350 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-size pool and a huge conference centre 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 facility the Manager mentions, the man replies, "But we
 didn't use it!"

 The Manager is not moved, 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 $100."

 "That's right," says the man. "I charged you $250 for sleeping with my
 wife."

"But I didn't!" exclaims the Manager.

"Well," the man replies, "She was here, and you could have.
