The following is a KSCO commentary. Here is Kay Zwerling:
This is chuckle time. Because most of us are stressed out with worry about the direction of our beloved Country, let’s take out a few moments to laugh.
This is called “Hotel bill”, and it is very apropos.
An older lady decided to give herself a big treat for her significant birthday by staying overnight in an expensive hotel.
When she checked out the next morning, the desk clerk handed her a bill for $250.
She exploded and demanded to know why the charge was so high.
"It's a nice hotel, but the rooms certainly are not worth $250 for an overnight stay! I did not even have breakfast."
The clerk told her that $250 is the standard rate, so she insisted on speaking to the Manager.
The Manager appeared and, forewarned by the desk clerk, announced: "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 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 did not 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."
"That is correct. I charged you $200 for sleeping with me," she replied.
"But I didn't!" exclaims the very surprised Manager.
"Well, too bad, I was here, and you could have."
So, the answer is, don't mess with Senior Citizens!
Any woman can have the body of a 21-year-old, as long as she buys him a few drinks first.
