20 years ago in my second apartment. The stove wasn’t working one morning. Called the landlord when i got to work. Didn’t really expect anything of it. But when i got home that evening. There was a brand new stove in place. I was so happy cause i thought i’d be out a week or.. who knows. It was a nicer better stove. I was happy to cook on it.
Fast forward to now. My tenant texted me that the fridge stopped working on Saturday. I was like oh no. I started searching around for a new fridge. But all the home depot and bestbuy … earliest deliveries were 9/7 – 9/23.
i kept looking to different appliance stores finally found one that would deliver to them NEXT DAY. it cost more $ , but it was really important for me to get it to them ASAP for some reason.
After confirming the order , spoke to some other friends that had investment properties. They were all like… why? just wait a week, save $. totally unnecessary to get it next day!
I thought about it and remembered way back to my experience with my good landlord. And that stuck with me. And i don’t regret it just to save a few hundred.
