    well you could have....

    An older lady decided to give herself a big treat for her 70th birthday by staying overnight in a really nice hotel.
    When she checked out the next morning, the desk clerk handed her a bill for $250.00. She demanded to know why the charge was so high.
    "I agree it's a nice hotel, but the rooms aren't worth $250.00 for just an overnight stay! I didn't even have breakfast."
    The clerk told her that $250.00 is the 'standard rate', and breakfast had been included had she wanted it.
    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 centre 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 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," the Manager replied.
    No matter what amenity the Manager mentioned, she replied, "But I didn't use it!" and the Manager countered with his standard response.
    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 $200.00 for sleeping with me," she replied.
    "But I didn't!" exclaimed the very surprised Manager.
    "Well, too bad, I was here, and you could have!
