The Hotel Bill

 Next time you think your hotel bill is too high, you might want to consider this:

 My wife and I are traveling by car from Victoria to Prince George.After almost eleven hours
 on the road, we were too tired to continue, and  decide to take a room.
 But, we only planned to sleep for four hours and then get
 back on the road. When we checked out four hours later, the desk clerk hands
 us a bill for $350.00.

 I explode and demand to know why the charge is so high.I tell the clerk
 although it's a nice hotel; the rooms certainly aren't worth $350.00
 Then the clerk tells me that $350.00 is the 'standard rate'. I insisted on
 speaking to the Manager.

 The Manager appears, listens to me, and then explains that the hotel has an
 Olympic-sized pool and a huge conference center that were available for us
 to use.'But we didn't use them.''Well, they are here, and you could  have,'
 explains the Manager.

 He goes on to explain we could also have taken in one of the shows for which
 the hotel is famous. 'We have 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,' .'Well, we have them, and you
 could have,' the Manager replies.

 No matter what amenity the Manager mentions, I  reply,'But we didn't use it!'

 The Manager is unmoved, and eventually I gave up and agreed to pay.

 I  write a cheque and give it to the Manager
 The Manager is surprised when he looks at the cheque. 'But sir,' 'this
 cheque is only made out for $50.00.''That's correct, as I charged you
 $300.00 for sleeping with my wife.'

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

 'Well, too bad,  she was here, and you could have.'
