A tired traveler pulls into a hotel around midnight. Very tired after a long day’s trip he asks the clerk for a single room. As the clerk fills out the paperwork, the man looks around and sees a gorgeous blonde sitting in the lobby.
He tells the clerk to wait while he disappears into the lobby. After a minute he comes back, with the girl on his arm.
Fancy meeting my “wife” here, he says to the clerk. I guess I’ll need a double room for the night.
Next morning, he comes to settle his bill, and finds the amount to be over $3000.
What’s the meaning of this? he yells at the clerk. I’ve only been here one night!
Yes, says the clerk, but your wife has been here for three weeks.
