An elderly 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 nice hotel but the rooms certainly aren't worth $450.00 for just an overnight stay. I didn't even have breakfast."


The clerk told her that $450.00 is the 'standard rate,' so she insisted on speaking to the manager.


The manager appeared and forewarned by the desk clerk, informed the woman,"This 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 the world over performing here," 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" and the manager countered with his standard response.


After several minutes discussion with the manager 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 $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."
