So I got this email last night while on-air. I’m not sure how to respond to this so I figured I would ask you guys out there. If you were in this situation, what would you do?
Here was the email:
“My best friend from high school, Brandi, asked me if I wanted to take a bedroom in her apartment. I asked her how much. She told me $750 a month.
Now I thought that was expensive. But I thought it would be worth it to live with my best friend from high school.
I have the smaller bedroom. I do most of the cleaning. But after complaining about something to the land lord . . . I found out the rent on our apartment is only $1,000.
BRANDI TRICKED ME INTO PAYING 75% OF THE RENT.
Now in all fairness, I didn’t ask Brandi what was “half of the rent”. I asked her simply “how much?” I didn’t try to negotiate with my best friend.
I haven’t told Brandi I know yet. My best friend suckered me like a used car salesman. I don’t know what to do.
