The Hotel Bill
An elderly lady decided to give herself a big treat for her
birthday by staying overnight in one of Chicago 's most expensive

When she checked out the next morning, the desk clerk handed her
a bill for $250.00.

She exploded and demanded 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 stop without even breakfast."

The clerk told her that $250.00 is the 'standard rate' so she insisted
on speaking to the Manager.

The Manager appeared and forewarned by the desk clerk announced: "the
hotel has an Olympic-sized pool and a huge conference center which are
available for use."

'But I didn't use them," she said.

''Well, they are here, and you could have," explained the Manager.

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 New York , Los Angeles , and Las
Vegas 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 didn't use it!"

The Manager was unmoved, so she decided to pay, wrote a check
and gave it to the Manager.

The Manager was surprised when he looked at the check.
" But madam, this check is only made out for $50.00." '

'That's correct. I charged you $200.00 for sleeping with me," she

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

"Well, too bad, I was here, and you could have."
