A businessman meets a beautiful girl and agrees to spend the night with
her for $500. So they do. Before he leaves, he tells her that he does
not have any cash with him, but he will have his secretary write a check
and mail it to her, calling the payment 'RENT FOR APARTMENT.'
On the way to the office he regrets what he has done, realizing that the
whole event was not worth the price. So he has his secretary send a
check for $250 and enclose the following typed note:
Enclosed you will find a check in the amount of $250 for rent of your
apartment. I am not sending the amount agreed upon, because when I
rented the apartment, I was under the impression that; 1) it had never
been occupied, 2) that there was plenty of heat , 3) it was small enough
to make me feel cozy and at home. However, I found out that it had been
previously occupied, that there wasn't any heat, and that it was
entirely too large.
Upon receipt of the note, the girl immediately returned the check for
$250 with the following note:
First of all, I cannot understand how you expect a beautiful apartment
to remain unoccupied indefinitely. As for the heat, there is plenty, if
you know how to turn it on. Regarding the space, the apartment is indeed
of regular size, but if you don't have enough furniture to fill it,
please don't blame the landlady. Send the rent in full or we will be
forced to contact your present landlady.
