Clever guest upsets arrogant boss as he tries to charge $350 for the room.

Like the husband and wife in the joke below, most people find it difficult to find the right lodging when they are traveling. You should read it because it will make you laugh out loud. A married couple was driving from Key West to Boston. They stopped for a rest after traveling for nearly twenty-four hours because they were too exhausted to go on.

They made a stop at a pleasant hotel, checked into a room, and only intended to stay there for four hours before continuing on their journey. Four hours later, when they checked out, the desk clerk gave them a $350 bill. The man erupts, demanding to know why the fee is so excessive. It’s a nice hotel, he tells the clerk, but the rooms are definitely not worth $350.

The man demands to speak with the manager after the clerk informs him that $350 is the standard rate. The manager shows up, pays attention to what the man has to say, and then informs him that the husband and wife are welcome to use the hotel’s enormous conference center and Olympic-sized pool. “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 New York, Hollywood and Las Vegas 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 facility 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 check and gives it to the manager. The manager is surprised when he looks at the check. “But sir,” he says, “this check is only made out for $100.” “That’s right,” says the man. “I charged you $250 for sleeping with my wife.” “But I didn’t!” exclaims the manager. “Well,” the man replies, “she was here, and you could have.”
