    Ahhh yes... I love it when a screwball comes to the desk and thinks they can just pay whatever they want for their hotel room, like we forced them to stay at our hotel and didn't give them an opportunity to negotiate the rate or go to another hotel :doah:

    Good joke, though, just hard for me to laugh at because there really are people like that just about every single day even in small town Cheyenne :rolleyes: :haha:
