Humour — 12 May 2017

A soldier was on leave and had been driving towards home for many hours.

Tired, he pulled into a little town for a night’s rest, but found out every hotel room was taken.

“You’ve got to have a room somewhere,” he pleaded with the receptionist of the last hotel he found.

“Well, I do have a double room with one occupant, but he is an Air Force guy,” admitted the young woman, “and he might be glad to split the cost. But to tell you the truth, he snores so loudly that people in adjoining rooms have complained in the past. I’m not sure it’d be worth it to you.”

“No problem,” the tired Army guy assured her, “I’ll take it.”

The next morning the soldier came down to breakfast bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

“How’d you sleep?” asked the curious receptionist.

“Never better,” said the soldier.

The receptionist was impressed. “No problem with the other guy snoring all night long?”

“No, no, I shut him up in no time,” explained the soldier.

“How’d you manage that?” she asked.

“Well, he was already in bed, snoring away, when I walked into the room, so I gave him a kiss on the cheek,” explained the soldier. “Then, I whispered in his ear, ‘Good night beautiful’, and he sat up all night watching me.”
