it was there if you wanted it

Es­ti­mated reading time is 1 minute.

FOR HER 70th BIRTHDAY, s woman de­cided to treat her­self to a night in a re­ally nice hotel. When she checked out the next morning, the desk clerk handed her a bill for $550.00. She de­manded to know why the charge was so high.

“I agree it’s a nice hotel, but the rooms aren’t worth $550.00 for just an overnight stay! I didn’t even have breakfast.”

The clerk told her, “Ma’am, $550.00 is the stan­dard rate, and break­fast had been in­cluded. It was there if you wanted it.”

She in­sisted on speaking to the man­ager, who duly 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,” ex­plained the Man­ager, “and you could have used ei­ther or both of them. It was there if you wanted it.”

He went on to ex­plain that she could also have seen one of the in-hotel shows for which they were so famous.

“We have the best en­ter­tainers from the world over 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 seen the shows,” the Man­ager replied. “It was there if you wanted it.” 

No matter what amenity the Man­ager men­tioned, she replied, “But I didn’t use it!” and the Man­ager coun­tered with his stan­dard re­sponse, It was there if you wanted it.

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 $500.00 for sleeping with me,” she replied.

“But I didn’t!” ex­claimed the very sur­prised Manager.

“Well, too bad. I was here. I was alone. It was there if you wanted it.”
