A Lesson in Assumptions: The Unexpected Consequences

Once upon a time, a young married man found himself in the charming company of a stunning woman. They agreed to spend the night together, with the man offering to pay her $500 for her company. However, as the night came to a close, he couldn’t help but feel a sense of disappointment. He believed that the amount he had agreed to pay was too much for the experience he had encountered.

Instead of 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 still dissatisfied, the man decided to send her only half of the agreed-upon sum along with a letter explaining his discontent.

In the letter, he wrote:

“Dear Madam,

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 reduced payment and the man’s letter, the woman was taken aback. Promptly, she returned the check to the man and replied with a letter of her own:

“Dear Sir,

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.”
