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. 

 

Signed,

 

Carrie”
