    A husband and wife are traveling by car from Key West to Boston.
    After almost twenty-four hours on the road, they're too tired to
    continue, and they decide to stop for a rest. They stop at a
    nice hotel and take a room, but they only plan to sleep for four
    hours and then get back on the road. When they check out four
    hours later, the desk clerk hands them a bill for $350.

    The man explodes and demands to know why the charge is so
    high. He tells the clerk although it's a nice hotel, the rooms
    certainly aren't worth $350. When the clerk tells him $350 is
    the standard rate, the man insists on speaking to the manager.

    The manager appears, listens to the man, and then explains that
    the hotel has an Olympic sized pool and a huge conference
    center that were available for the husband and wife to use.

    "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 mnager 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 mnager.

    "Well," the man replies, "she was here, and you could have."
