Late one evening, a weary Marine found himself in a quaint little town, desperately seeking a place to rest his fatigued body. To his dismay, every hotel room in the town appeared to be occupied. Exhausted and with no other options, he finally reached the last hotel in the area.
Approaching the hotel manager, the Marine implored, “You’ve got to have a room somewhere, or just a bed, I don’t care where.” The manager hesitated for a moment before reluctantly revealing, “Well, I do have a double room with one occupant, a Navy guy. He might be willing to split the cost, but there’s a catch. He snores so loudly that it’s driven people in adjoining rooms to complain in the past.
Are you sure you want to take it?” Unfazed by the potential disturbance, the fatigued Marine replied with determination, “No problem. I’ll take it.” The following morning, the Marine emerged from his room well-rested and full of energy, a stark contrast to the night before.
Intrigued, the manager inquired, “How did you sleep?” The Marine grinned and responded, “Never better.” The manager was astonished and couldn’t help but ask, “No problem with the other guy snoring, then?” The Marine chuckled and replied, “Nope, I shut him up in no time.” Perplexed, the manager asked for an explanation, “How’d you manage that?”
With a mischievous twinkle in his eye, the Marine recounted the events of the previous night, saying, “He was already in bed, snoring away when I entered the room. I walked over, gave him a kiss on the cheek, said, ‘Goodnight, beautiful,’ and after that, he stayed up all night watching me…”
The story concludes with a humorous twist, highlighting the Marine’s clever way of dealing with his snoring roommate, leaving the manager and anyone who hears the tale amused and entertained by the unexpected turn of events.
