Once there was a young married man who found himself in the company of a stunning woman. They agreed to spend the night together, with the man agreeing to pay $500 for her company. However, as the night came to an end, he couldn’t help but feel that it hadn’t lived up to his expectations. He believed that the amount he had agreed to pay was too much for what he had experienced.
Rather than paying her in cash, they decided that he would send her a check labeled as “apartment rent.” This way, they could part ways amicably. But the man, still dissatisfied, decided to send her only half of the agreed-upon sum along with a letter explaining his disappointment.
In the letter, he wrote:
Enclosed, you will find a $250 check intended for your rent. I have sent a different amount than we initially agreed upon because when I rented the apartment, I had certain expectations. I expected a vacant apartment, a warm and cozy atmosphere, and a comfortable living space. However, last night, I discovered that the apartment had been previously occupied, lacked proper heating, and was too spacious for my liking.”
Upon receiving the letter and the reduced payment, the woman was taken aback. She promptly returned the check to the man and responded with her own letter:
Firstly, I am astounded by the notion that you expected a beautiful apartment to remain vacant indefinitely. As for the heating issue, it is available if you know how to operate it properly. And concerning the room’s size, it is indeed quite sufficient. If you find the furnishings unsatisfactory, kindly refrain from blaming the landlord. I must warn you that if you do not remit a check for the full $500, I will have no choice but to contact your current landlord.”
