  • Hotel Bill

    A husband and wife are traveling by car from Cape Town to Musina .

    After almost twenty-four hours on the road, they're 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 R950.00.

    The man explodes and demands to know why the charge is so high. He tells the clerk although it's a nice hotel, the rooms certainly aren't worth R950.00.

    When the clerk tells him R950.00 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 didn't 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 Jhb, Cape Town, and Dbn perform here," the Manager says.

    "But we didn't 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 didn't use it!"

    The Manager is unmoved, and eventually the man gives up and agrees to pay.

    He writes a cheque 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 R250.00."

    "That's correct," says the man. "I charged you R700.00 for sleeping with my wife."

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

    "Well, too bad," the man replies. "She was here and you could have."

        Come on... any real married couple would know that there is no way that a husband & wife can support being alone in the car for such a long journey

              Well, it didn't specifically say that they were alone in the car
