A travel agent looked up from his desk to see an old lady and an old
gentleman peering in the shop window at the posters showing the glamorous
destinations around the world. The agent had had a good week and the
dejected couple looking in the window gave him a rare feeling of generosity.
He called them into his shop: “I know that on your pension you could never
hope to have a holiday, so I am sending you off to a fabulous resort at my
expense, and I won’t take no for an answer”.
He took them inside and asked his secretary to write two flight tickets and
book a room in a five star hotel. They, as can be expected, gladly
accepted, and were off!
About a month later the little old lady came in to his shop.
“And how did you like your holiday?” he asked eagerly.
“The flight was exciting and the room was lovely,” she said.
“I’ve come to thank you. But, one thing puzzled me. Who was that old
guy I had to share the room with?”
