A traveler stopped at a historic hotel and requested the rates for a room.
“A room on the first floor is $400, on the second floor $300, and on the third floor $200,” replied the desk clerk.
The traveler thought a bit, said thank you, and turned to leave.
“Don’t you like our hotel?” asked the clerk.
“Oh, it’s beautiful,” said the traveler. “It just isn’t tall enough.”
What’s So Funny?
The prices of the hotel’s rooms became cheaper with each higher floor. The top floor, although cheaper than the others, was still too expensive for the traveler. He was hoping to pay a lower price, but there were no higher floors left.
