The Candle-Lighter Award and the Sunshine Award

Thank you very much to www.living4bliss.wordpress.com for presenting me with the Candle-Lighter Award and the Sunshine Award.  I truly appreciate the recognition!

Both of these awards are for a blog or post that is positive and brings light into the world.

I started this “Good News” blog in July 2010 because I was tired of and disgusted by all the negative news and information.  I wanted to give people positive news and information.  I’m having a great time looking for, receiving, and posting these pieces!  Stay tuned!!

 

RULES for the Candle-Lighter Award

Whenever you see a blog or post you think brightens the world, give the blogger the Candle-Lighter Award.

Recipients can accept or decline. What does the recipient have to do?  Simply accept and nothing more!  You can paste this image on your blog, if you wish, and you are done!  If you wish to honor someone else with a Candle, pass it on, anytime and as many times and to as many people as you wish.

Come on and help me brighten up all our lives!

TODAY’S BLOG

It’s “Funny Friday!”  My cousin, Marci Jones, sent me this one.  I hope it will add another smile or laugh to the beginning of your weekend.

 

FUNNY FRIDAY:  Hotel Bill

 

A married couple was traveling by car from Victoria to Prince George.  Being senior citizens, after almost eleven hours on the road, they were too tired to continue and decided to get a room.

They only planned to sleep for four hours and then get back on the road.

When they checked out four hours later, the desk clerk handed them a bill for $350.00.

The man exploded and demanded to know why the charge was so high. He told the clerk although it’s a nice hotel, the rooms certainly aren’t worth $350.00 for four hours.

Then the clerk tells him that $350.00 is the ‘standard rate.’ He insisted on speaking to the manager.

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

“But we didn’t use them,” the husband said.

”Well, they are here, and you could have,” explained the manager. The manager went on to explain that the couple could also have taken in one of the shows for which the hotel is famous. “We have the best entertainers from New York, Hollywood, and Las Vegas perform here”, the manager said.

“But we didn’t go to any of those shows,” the husband said.

“Well, we have them, and you could have,” the manager replied.

No matter what amenity the manager mentioned, the husband replied, “But we didn’t use it!”

The manager was unmoved, and eventually the husband gave up and agreed to pay.

He asked his wife to write the check. She did and gave it to the manager.

The manager is surprised when he looks at the check.

“But ma’am, this is only made out for $50.00.”

”That’s correct. I charged you $300.00 for a nice back rub,” she replied.

“But I didn’t get a back rub from you!” exclaims the manager.

“Well, I was here, and you could have.”

 

Don’t mess with senior citizens. They didn’t get there by being stupid.
