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

A husband and wife are traveling by car from Brisbane to
Melbourne. After almost ten hours on the road, theyʼre too tired
to continue and they decide to stop for a rest. They stop at a
nice hotel and take a room, but they only plan to sleep for four
hours and then get back on the road.

When they check out four hours later, the desk clerk; hands
them a bill for $450.00. The man explodes and demands to
know why the charge is so high. He tells the clerk although itʼs a
nice hotel; the rooms certainly arenʼt worth $450.00. When the
clerk tells him $450.00 is the standard rate, the man insists on
speaking to the Manager. The Manager appears, listens to the
man, and then explains that the hotel has an Olympic-sized pool
and a huge conference center that were available for the
husband and wife to use. “But we didnʼt use them,” the man
complains. “Well, they are here, and you could have,” explains
the Manager. He goes on to explain they could have taken in
one of the shows for which the hotel is famous. “The best
entertainers from New York , Hollywood , and Las Vegas
perform here,” the Manager says. “But we didnʼt go to any of
those shows,” complains the man again. “Well, we have them,
and you could have,” the Manager replies. No matter what
amenity the Manager mentions! , the man replies, “But we didnʼt
use it!” The Manager is unmoved, and eventually the man gives
up and agrees to pay.

He writes a check and gives it to the Manager. The Manager is
surprised when he looks at the cheque. “But sir,” he says, “this
cheque is only made out for $50.00.” “Thatʼs correct,” says the
man. “I charged you $400.00 for sleeping with my Wife.”
“But I didnʼt!” exclaims the Manager. “Well, too bad,” the man
replies. “She was here and you could have.”
