Good morning, Madam. Can I help you? Are you the manager? I am the owner, Madam. What? I am the owner I want to speak to the manager I am the manager, too What? I am the manager as well Manaher. He manaher

Oh, you're Watt I'm the manager! What? I'm the manager! Yes, I know. You've just told me. What's the matter with you? Now, listen to me. I booked a room with a bath When I book a room with a bath, I expect to get a bath. You've got a bath I'm not paying £7.20p per night plus V.A.T., for a room without a bath! There is your bath. You call that a bath? It's not big enough to drown a mouse. It's disgraceful! I wish you were a mouse. I'd show you. And another thing. I asked for a room with a view. Deaf, mad, and blind. This is the view as far as I can remember, madam. Yes, yes, this is it. When I pay for a view, I expect something more interesting than that. That is Torquay, madam. That is not good enough. Well, may I ask what you were expecting to see out of a Torquay hotel bedroom window? Sydney Opera House, perhaps? The Hanging Gardens of Babylon? Herds of wildebeest sweeping majestically... Don't be silly. I expect to be able to see the sea. You can see the sea. It's over there between the land and the sky. I need a telescope to see that. Well, may I suggest that you consider moving to a hotel closer to the sea? Or preferably in it? Right. Now, listen to me. I'm not satisfied, but I've decided to stay here. However, I shall expect a reduction.

Why, because Krakatoa's not erupting at the moment? Because the room is cold, the bath is too small, the view is invisible, and the radio doesn't work. No, the radio works. You don't. What? I'll see if I can fix it, you scabby old bat. I think we got something then What? I think we got something then! What are you doing? Qué? Madam, don't think me rude, but may I ask, do you by any chance have a hearing aid? A what?

A hearing aid! Yes, I do have a hearing aid.

Would you like me to get it mended?! Mended? It's working perfectly all right. No, it isn't! I haven't got it turned on at the moment. Why not? The battery runs down. Now, what sort of a reduction are you going to give me on this room? 60% if you turn it on. What? My wife handles all such matters I'm sure she will be delighted to discuss it with you. I shall speak to her after lunch. You heard that all right, didn't you? What? Thank you so much Lunch will be served at half past 12:00
