Space For Rent
One evening, after attending the theater, two gentlemen were walking down the
avenue when they observed a rather well dressed and attractive young lady
walking ahead of them. One of them turned to the other and remarked, "I'd
give $250.00 to spend the night with that woman."
Much to their surprise, the young lady overheard the remark, turned around, and
replied, "I'll take you up on that offer."
She had a neat appearance and a pleasant voice, so after bidding his companion
good night, the man accompanied the young lady to her apartment.
The following morning the man presented her with $125.00 as he prepared to
leave. She demanded the rest of the money, stating "If you don't give me
the other $125.00, I'll sue you for it."
He laughed, saying, "I'd like to see you get it on these grounds."
Within a few days, he was surprised when he received a summons ordering his
presence in court as a defendant in a lawsuit. He hurried to his lawyer and
explained the details of the case.
His lawyer said, "She can't possibly get a judgment against you on such
grounds, but it will be interesting to see how her case will be presented."
After the usual preliminaries, the lady's lawyer addressed the court as follows:
"Your honor, my client, this lady, is the owner of a piece of property, a
garden spot, surrounded by a profuse growth of shrubbery, which property she
agreed to rent to the defendant for a specified length of time for the sum of
$250.00. The defendant took possession of the property, used it extensively for
the purposes for which it was rented, but upon evacuating the premises, he paid
only $125.00, one-half of the amount agreed upon. The rent was not excessive,
since it is restricted property, and we ask judgment be granted against the
defendant to assure payment of the balance."
The defendant's lawyer was impressed and amused by the way his opponent
had presented the case. His defense therefore was somewhat different from the
way he originally planned to present it. "Your honor," he said,
"my client agrees that the lady has a fine piece of property, which he did
rent such property for a time, and a degree of pleasure was derived from the
transaction. However, my client found a well on the property around which he
placed his own stones, sunk a shaft, and erected a pump, all labor performed
personally by him. We claim these improvements to the property were sufficient
to offset the unpaid amount, and that the plaintiff was adequately compensated
for the rental of said property. We, therefore, ask that judgment not be
The young lady's lawyer answered, "Your honor, my client agrees that the
defendant did find a well on her property. However, had the defendant not known
that the well existed; he would never have rented the property. Also, upon
evacuating the premises, the defendant removed the stones, pulled out the shaft,
and took the pump with him. In doing so, he not only dragged the equipment
through the shrubbery, but left the hole much larger than it was prior to his
occupancy, making the property much less desirable to others. We, therefore, ask
that judgment be granted."
In the Judge's decision, he provided for two options: "Pay the $125.00 or
have the equipment detached from its current location and provide it to the
plaintiff for damages."
The defendant immediately wrote a check.
