    The Hotel Stay

    The Hotel Stay

    An older lady 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 for just an overnights stay. I Didn't even have breakfast."


    The clerk told her that her $250 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 clerk, announced: "This hotel has an Olympic sized pool and a huge conference center which are available for use."


    "But I Didnt use them, she said."



    "Well, they are here and you could have, " explained the manager. He went on to explain that she could have also seen one of the in-hotel shows for which they were so famous. "We have the best entertainers from all over the world 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!" 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$50.00."

    "That's correct. I charged you $200.00 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."

    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    I use 56% silver on everything except steel.

    Did you really need the " If you were a real tech " ??
