Do You Rent or Own?
I recently ventured out to see if I could find a place to rent in my community. There are thousand of options. Most cost anything from five-hundred to one-thousand dollars a month. I found a great prospect the other day by the river. It was a tan house with two bedrooms and a bath going for only two-hundred dollars a month! Naturally, I found this location on craigslist. I copied the owners email address and sent him a message. My message was this: "Hello, my name is Wendy Wilson." (I am a male, and my name is not Wendy Wilson). "I see that you have a wonderful house for rent down by the river in the valley. I am very interested. I only have two questions: Why is your property so cheep to rent? Is it haunted?" I received an email two weeks later stating: "Hello Wendy Wilson. My name is Mike Wilson. Yes. My house is haunted by the spirit of my dead father. We have had a lot of renovations done to the place lately. My father is not aggressive, but he does get upset if a renovator does a sloppy job. If he thinks a job is done sloppily he will wreck up the place a bit until the renovator’s progress is halted. The only problem is; we cannot get my father to leave. He rented the place from us for three years. He died last month. I've been trying to explain to him that he cannot haunt a house that he does not own. He is only renting. I am giving him a month. Once his month is up, he's got to get the hell out of there. Thanks for your interest, and I look forward to meeting you." I did not reply. I'm not interested in renting a house anymore; I want to own.
P.S. This is a true story... Kind of...
