Humor:Don't Mess With Senior Citizens!

 An elderly lady decided to give herself a big treat for her significant birthday by staying overnight in one of London's most expensive hotels.

When she checked out next morning, the desk clerk handed her a bill for £250.00.

She explode and demanded to know why the charge was so high.

"It's a nice hotel but the rooms certainly aren't worth £250.00 for just an overnight stop without even breakfast."

The clerk told her that £250..00 is the 'standard rate' so she insisted on speaking to the Manager.

The Manager appeared and forewarned by the desk clerk announced:

"the 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 the hotel is famous. "

We have the best entertainers from Edinburgh,Glasgow, and Aberdeen 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!"

The Manager was unmoved, so she decided to pay, wrote a cheque and gave it to the Manager. 

The Manager was surprised when he looked at the cheque.

"But madam, this cheque is only made out for £50.00."

''that's correct. I charged you £200.00 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."

Don't mess with Senior Citizens !

An Irish Prayer
May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.

Day 145/365


A husband walks into Victoria ’s Secret to purchase a sheer negligee for
his wife.

He is shown several possibilities that range from $250 to $500 in price --

the more sheer, the higher the price.
He opts for the sheerest item, pays the $500, and takes it home.
He presents it to his wife and asks if she would like to put it on, and
model it for him.
Upstairs, the wife thinks (she's no dummy),

"I have an idea ... it's so sheer that it might as well be nothing.

I won't put it on, I'll do the modeling nude, return the negligee tomorrow,

and keep the $500 refund for myself."
She appears nude on the balcony and strikes a pose.
The husband takes one look and says, "Good Grief!

You'd think for $500, they'd at least iron it!"
