Apartment available for one night. Please pay in full...

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 cheque and mail it to her, calling
the payment 'RENT FOR APARTMENT.'

On the way to the office, he regretted what he had
done, telling himself that the whole event had not been
worth the price.

So he had his secretary send a cheque for $250 and enclose the following typed note:

'Dear Madam, 

Enclosed find a cheque 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 woman 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!

Whoever used "the departed" to refer to the very much alive soccer star Suarez needs to go back to school!...

As for this caption story below, did this 81-year-old really retire at 81 years old!! That would have been a story in itself...

Finally, even if this story below is a commentary piece, how many people know what Mr VK Rajah looks like? Surely even a small "facecut" picture of him would have been in order...
