As a newlywed couple was checking into the hotel for their
honeymoon, another couple at the desk offered to show them around the town that
night. Thanking them for the kind
offer, the bridegroom explained that it was their wedding night and that they'd
prefer to take a rain check.
When the second couple came down to breakfast the next morning they were
astonished to catch sight of the groom in the hotel bar apparently drowning his
sorrows. "Why you should
be the happiest man in the world today," they said coming over to him.
"Yesterday I was," said the man mournfully. "But this morning, without thinking,
I put three hundred dollar bills on the pillow and got up to get dressed."
"Hey, cheer up, she probably didn't even notice."
"That's the problem," the groom went on. "Without even thinking, she gave me
fifty dollars change!"
