If you’ve ever been a tenant (or are currently one), then you probably understand the struggle of having to pay your rent from month to month. It’s really not easy to budget your money and to make sure that you do not get delayed with your payments.
Because if you keep on missing the rent, chances are you’d end up without a place to stay and that would be a really tough scenario for you. Unless, of course, your landlord offers you an easy way out?
An unusual request from a landlady.
Well one young man in Beijing, China has experienced being delayed for a month with his rent. His landlady sent him a message about it and, much to his surprise, gave him an option that will leave him worry-free for a year in the moment he obliges.
Based on 9GAG’s English translation of the exchange, the landlady reminded “It’s time to pay the rent” and the lad only responded “I don’t have enough money” and begged “please gimme a few more days.”
Eventually, she texted back – with an indecent proposal.
“It’s okay if you can’t pay the rent. When you have finished work for the day, come to my house to accompany me then you don’t have to pay for rent.”
Would you grab the offer or not?
Perhaps feeling creeped out about the strange deal, the young man later responded “I’ll get it done today”.
Still determined, the landlady texted back:
“I will only do it this one time and then you don’t have to pay rent for the whole year. Think about it! I will be at my house waiting for you.”
Now we do not have all the details about the two individuals involved and if the deal pushed through (no pun intended) but as far as we can tell, the landlady may be really, really attracted to the tenant – and he must be extremely good-looking? I mean who would be crazy to offer a year’s worth of rent for free, right? And yeah, the feeling is probably NOT mutual if the guy can resist that kind of offer.
What would you do if you were in the young man’s shoes?
Would you bang and run and then enjoy living rent-free or would you rather not? Tell us about it in the comment section below!
Poor Man Who’s Rejected Repeatedly For Trying To Buy Lamborghini Stuns Agent With His Ride
They were left stunned when he actually bought a supercar.
No matter how much you believe that appearances are not everything, you can't deny that in some industries, your look matters a lot. Take for instance car dealerships -- more often than not, they'll always be on a lookout for customers who drop by only to take a free spin of supercars or even waste their time by chatting only to take selfies with the luxury vehicles.
The thing is a lot of rich guys who can actually afford don't really look the part. Maxman TV managed to show proof through a social experiment that there are car dealers who would easily turn away potential customers just by judging them by appearance.
The potential customer came to the car dealership with his average-looking sedan.
He also came wearing plain clothes and the staff wasn't convinced he can purchase any car in the shop.
Is It Right or Wrong for Parents to Pay Kids for Doing Chores?
Experts still can’t seem to agree if it’s beneficial to kids when parents promise to pay them if they do household chores.
Parents always want what's best for their kids. That includes teaching them some life skills and instilling the right values. Parents also don't want their kids to be lazy. They want them to be independent.
Indeed, moms and dads do a number of things to encourage their children's independence. It so happens that one of the best ways to do this is to give kids certain responsibilities. Of course, the first thing that comes to mind is to give them chores.
Should they be paid for dealing with their own mess?
However, very few kids (if any) look forward to doing chores. In order to motivate them, some parents have decided to pay them regularly for it. Now, is this a good thing or a bad idea? So far, there has been no definite answer. It's still one of the most spirited debates in the realm of parenting....
Judge Orders 30-Year-Old Man To Vacate Parents’ House After They Complained Against Him
He does not help in household chores nor support financially.
A 30-year old man has been ordered by a judge to vacate his parents’ house after his parents brought matters to the court as their last recourse to have him evicted from home. After several attempts to have him move out failed, it was time for the court to meddle, his parents thought.
While it is the responsibility of the parents to provide for the needs of their children, some cultures dictate that they should only do so for them until a certain age. When children come of the right age and are considered adults, they are already expected to fend for themselves.
Michael Rotondo refused to move out of his parents' house despite being 30 already.
As Michael Rotondo is already 30 years-old and has repeatedly refused to leave their family home despite his parents’ pleas, his mother and father Mark and Christina were left with no choice but to take matters to the court. According to the Rotondo couple, they had been trying to evict their son from their home as, apart from not paying rent, he was also not contributing to the household in any way. ...
