Today Felton emailed me and told me it was Madie’s birthday. I emailed him back and gave the sly remark: “ummmm am I supposed to give her a lapdance?” This is because probably everyone is throwing themselves at her. Sometimes during “conversation with the guys”, every guy will always say they want to bang Madie. Expectingly as with all attractive women like Madie, they expect guys to throw themselves at her. But Dick takes after a pickup artist who once wrote a New York Times bestseller. “We don’t pursue women, [women should be pursuing us]”As usual with Dick he emailed Madie and told her: “Felton said I should wish you a Happy Birthday. So here goes…Happy Birthday. I’d like to schedule a time to sit down with your roommate, your two dogs and you to discuss the $800 room.”
In a fit of anger Madie told me that they had already found someone and that she put the deposit down and she already has the keys. The question here is did Dick really get dicked over?
You see journal…you don’t know the whole story…so here goes. The night I left Madie’s apartment I walked down the street and after a few houses I turned back and remembered the sign for the leasing agent. I took down the phone number and decided to find out how much the apartment really rented for on the market. What I discovered is that the apartment rented for significantly less what the three of us would pay if it was even across the boards: Madie, the second roommate and I would pay ($800 each).
My coworkers says that technically Madie’s roommate found the apartment, signed the lease and put the deposit so he is entitled to charge what he wants. His advice: I should state that I want to move in and state upfront I don’t think the room is worth $800 and try to negotiate with the leaseholder. If the leaseholder insists that he needs $800 to cover the cost then “he’s a douchebag”, however if he comes clean then he can’t be at fault. My coworker is relying on the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.
In any case who got shafted here? Dick or Madie? The readers of this website who hate me will say I instigate, however I offer nothing but an open forum to address the problem. One thing is for certain if I asked ten of my readers to pick my best quality they would say if Dick is a great strategist.
