You guys might be knowing how I like my landlady. She is sweet, loving, caring, and concerned. She love her tenants just like the way she love her kids..
I won’t say the above words even if I am drunk !!!!
Now to the point, we have been her tenants for almost an year now. The place rented out to us still looks fresh, neat and tidy. The rent was given without delay on 1st of every month. The electrical items are all intact. The place is still the same way she rented out to us.
When moving in we had this conversation.
Me : Where will I put my bike?
LL (landlady) : You can put it outside, see how all the cars, bikes are kept outside.
Me : What about the basement parking? Seems like its empty.
LL : Yes, but I have given it on rent.
Me : Oh, then I will park outside.
Even after 6 months, I have never seen any human/alien/animal/unnatural being parking his/her/its car/bike/scooter/UFO in the basement.
Now that I bought a car (this is another way of letting you guys know that I bought a car, I am clever 🙂 ) I don’t have any place to park it.
So I took my tactics on to please her with a packet of sweets.
Me : Aunty I bought a car. Here are some sweets.
LL : Oh congratulations…
Me : I am wondering where I will park
LL : You can park outside, see how a new Ford Fiesta is parked outside. Eveyrone is parking outside nothing will happen.
Me : Can I use the basement parking. I have not seen anyone using it.
LL : Oh no son, I just remembered we are also buying a car soon.
Me : Which one?
LL : Alto
Me : Which color?
LL : Black
Me : When?
LL : Next week.
After a week.
Afterseeing my brand new car out in the sun, in the rain, I was hurt and decided to ask again.
Me : Aunty can I put the car in till you guys get a car.
LL : Oh no son, we have lot of stuff in there, there wont be much space in to fit a car.
Me : No, that’s not an issue, I can move the items.
LL : I just remembered we will be taking that item in and out, you don’t want to scratch the car do you?
Me : I can put the car outside when you take stuff.
LL : hmmm.
Me : I can pay an extra rent if you want, if its reasonable.
LL’s face brightened, her eyes shined.
LL : let me talk to uncle.
Me : sure and please let me know.
I am sure she will come up with some exorbitant rent for the parking space. I was thinking of my previous landlord in Trivandrum. When my brother bought his car, the landlord offered
“I don’t have a car yet, you can put the car in the garage”
Now that is reasonable.
Update : I bought a Chevy spark LS, white. Now I can add my share to pollution.
