There once was a girl named Rachel who lived in a town named Syracuse for about 3 years. After about three years she decided to take a pay cut and go back home to be near her family and her ill grandmother. She, reluctantly, said goodbye to her cozy little apartment with extremely low rent in a really great neighborhood, packed up her belongings and went back to a place called Ohio.
She lived in this magical place called Ohio for two years. Why is it magical? Because that’s where BF and Rachel met! After two years of working in Ohio, Rachel decided to take a different job back in Syracuse. She went up to Syracuse without an apartment! How crazy! But was staying with her friend, CGirl.
She searched and searched and searched for a place to live. Craigslist.com. Rent.com. Apartment Finder. Syracuse.com. SIGH. No luck. Then one magical day, she went back to Craigslist. And she sees “2 Bedroom. INSERT STREE NAME HERE. Upper.” The number to call? Her old landlords number!
Quickly dial. Sure enough, the current tenant is buying a house and her old apartment is back up for rent.
“But the ad says no pets. Can I still have Oscar puppy there?” says Rachel.
“Of course. And what were you paying before? I know I posted $550, but how about $500?” says Old Landlord.
Rachel went to go look at the place just to make sure. When she walked in to the apartment she saw it: her old kitchen table that her parents have had since she was born. She wasn’t able to get it out of the apartment when she left perviously so she had to leave it, which broke her heart. But there it was.
The current tenant said to her “Oh this table was here when we moved in. We’re leaving it when we move out.”
Security deposit? Paid. Sigh. Fate, that’s what this is.
