Landlord Or Timelord?

, , , , , | Working | July 18, 2018

(I am searching for a new apartment, and have just found a promising ad. I call to confirm the apartment is still available. Please note it is July 24th.)

Me: “Hello, I’m calling to find out if the one-bedroom, one-bath apartment at [Address] is still available?”

Landlord: “October 4th.”

Me: “What?”

Landlord: “October 4th.”

Me: “Oh, it’s not available until October 4th?”

Landlord: “We are in the month of October, ma’am.”

Me: “I… Okay. Thank you.”

Landlord: “You’re very welcome.”

(I crossed that apartment off my list, because I didn’t want a landlord who either couldn’t communicate clearly, or existed more than two months in the future from me.)
