    The hotel bill

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

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

    I exploded and demanded to know why the charge was so high. I told the clerk although it was a nice hotel, the rooms certainly weren't worth $350.00. Then the clerk told me that $350.00 was the 'standard rate'. I insisted on speaking to the Manager.

    The Manager appeared, listens to me, and then explained that the hotel had 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," explained the Manager.

    He went on to explain we also could have taken in one of the shows for which the hotel was famous. "We have the best entertainers from New York, Hollywood, and Las Vegas perform here," the Manager said.

    "But we didn't go to any of those shows." "Well, we have them, and you could have," the Manager replied.

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

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

    I wrote a check and give it to the Manager.

    The Manager is surprised when he looked at the check. "But sir, this check 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, that's too bad! She was here, and you could have."

    Don't mess with Senior Citizens LOL!
