A story from our UK neighbours ...
My wife and I were traveling by car from Liverpool to Shetland, after almost seven hours on the road, we were too tired to continue, and decided to take an hotel room in Dundee. But, we only planned to sleep overnight and then get back on the road. When we checked out next morning, the desk clerk handed us a bill for £250.00.

I explode and demanded to know why the charge was so high. I told the clerk although it's a nice hotel; the rooms certainly aren't worth £250.00 for just an overnight stop without even breakfast. The clerk told me that £250.00 is the 'standard rate' so I insisted on speaking to the Manager...

The Manager appeared, listened to me, and then explained that the hotel had an Olympic-sized pool and a huge conference centre that they were available for us to use. 'But we didn't use them," I said. ''Well, they are here, and you could have," explained the Manager..
He went on to explain that we could also have taken in one of the in-hotel shows for which the hotel is famous. "We have the best entertainers from Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Aberdeen performing here," the Manager said...

"But we didn't go to any of those shows," I said. "Well, we have them, and you could have," the Manager replied...

No matter what amenity the Manager mentioned, I replied, "But we didn't use it!"

The Manager is unmoved, and eventually I gave up and agreed to pay...

I wrote a cheque and gave it to the Manager...

The Manager was surprised when he looked at the cheque. "But sir, this cheque is only made out for £50.00." ''That's correct. I charged you £200.00 for sleeping with my wife," I replied...

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

I said, "Well, too bad, she was here, and you could have"...
