A travel agent looked up from his desk to see an older lady and an older gentleman peering in the shop window at the posters showing the glamorous destinations around the world.
The agent, having had an exceedingly profitable year, seeing the dejected couple looking in the window, was inspired to a rare feeling of generosity.
He called them into his shop and said, "I bet 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 to book a room in a five star hotel. They, as expected, gladly accepted, and were on their way.
About a month later the little lady came in to his shop. "And how did you like your holiday?" the travel agent asked eagerly.
"The flight was exciting and the room was lovely," she said. "I've come to thank you. But, one thing puzzled me."
"What would that be?" asked the travel agent.
"Who was that old guy I had to share the room with?"
