• A businessman met a beautiful girl and agreed to spend
    the night with her for $500. They did their thing,
    and, before he left, he told her that he did
    not have any cash with him, but he would have his
    secretary write a check and mail it to her, calling
    the payment 'RENT FOR APARTMENT.'

    On the way to the office, he regretted what he had
    done, realizing that the whole event had not been
    worth the price. So he had his secretary send a check for $250 and enclose the following typed note:

    'Dear Madam:
    Enclosed find a check for $250 for rent of your
    apartment . I am not sending the amount agreed upon,
    because when I rented the place, I was under the
    impression that:
    #1 - it had never been occupied;
    #2 - there was plenty of heat; and
    #3 - it was small enough to make me feel cozy and at home.
    However, I found out that:
    #1 - it had been previously occupied,
    #2 - there wasn't any heat, and
    #3 - it was entirely too large.'
    Upon receipt of the note, the girl immediately
    returned the check for $250 with the following note:

    'Dear Sir:
    #1 - I cannot understand how you could expect a
    beautiful apartment to remain unoccupied indefinitely.
    #2 - As for the heat, there is plenty of it, if you
    know how to turn it on.
    #3 - Regarding the space, the apartment is indeed of
    regular size, but if you don't have enough furniture
    to fill it, please do not blame the management.
    So, Please send the rent in full or we will be forced
    to contact your present landlady...
