An American couple on vacation in France on leaving a Paris hotel were given a bill for $700. The man protested to the manager who reminded him that he had a room plus bath.
"But I didn't take a bath," said the man.
"I can't help that, it was there for you," replied the manager.
The unhappy man wrote something on a paper and presented the manager with a bill for $500.
"What's that for?" cried the manager.
"For making love to my wife."
"But I never touched your wife," objected the manager, angrily.
"Can't help it," said the other, "she was there for you."
Later in their vacation after a week in a Marseille hotel, he was handed a huge bill of $1200. Remembering Paris, our hero called for the manager and said, "M'sieur, you owe me $500."
"For what?" asked the manager.
"For making love to my charming wife, Ethel, that's what."
The manager suddenly became red-faced and nervous as he replied in a low voice, "Sir, not so loud, please. If you will come into my office, I will write you a check right away."
