Lucille and the Hotel Bill…

Lucille decided to give herself a big treat for her 70th birthday by staying overnight in a really nice hotel. When she checked out the next morning, the desk clerk handed her a bill for $250.00. She demanded to know why the charge was so high

“I agree it’s a nice hotel, but the rooms 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,’ and breakfast had been included had she wanted it. She insisted on speaking to the Manager. The Manager appeared and, forewarned by the desk clerk, announced:

“This hotel has an Olympic-sized pool and a huge conference center which are available for use.”

“But I didn’t use them.”

”Well, they are here, and you could have.”

He went on to explain that she could also have seen one of the in-hotel shows for which they were so famous.

“We have the best entertainers from around the world performing here.”

“But I didn’t go to any of those shows.”

“Well, we have them, and you could have.”

No matter what amenity the Manager mentioned, she replied, “But I didn’t use it!” and the Manager countered with his standard response.

After several minutes discussion, and with the Manager still unmoved, she decided to pay, wrote a check and gave it to him.

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.”

“But I didn’t!”

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