“A husband calls up the hotel manager from his room…” (joke)

A hotel joke has a man call up the hotel manager. “Help! My wife wants to jump out of your hotel window!” the husband says. “That’s a personal problem,” the hotel manager replies. “No! The window won’t open! That’s a maintenance problem!” the husband declares.

The joke has been cited in print since at least 2012.
