There are times where many of us find ourselves being unable to make ends meet, which forces us to delay payments on some of our monthly bills.
This man in Beijing, China, who was renting a room received a message from his landlady about his late payment for a month. It’s common for landlords or landladies to contact their tenants to get their rent payment, usually by the end of the month.

Explaining his predicament, he asked her for some time as he needed to raise the money, but little did he know, his landlady had planned for something that he was not expecting. She said,
“It’s okay if you can’t pay the rent. When you have finished work for the day, come to my house to accompany me then you don’t have to pay for rent.”
Shocked by the reply, the young man must’ve forgotten that he might not have the necessary funds to pay his rent because he immediately replied her saying that he would transfer the money to her on that day itself.
However, the lady continued to ask him to think about it and sweetened the deal. She tried to persuade him saying,
“I will only do it this one time and then you don’t have to pay rent for the whole year. Think about it! I will be at my house waiting for you.”
Maybe she had fallen in love with him?

The screenshot of the WeChat conversation between the tenant and the landlady went viral on Chinese social media along with the landlady’s picture, netizens are quick to comment on the subject.
A few of them advised the young man to accept the offer and told him that he could switch off the lights. One of them said that it was worth it as the landlady wanted exchange just one night with one year’s worth of rent.
Another netizen commented that the young man might not be able to live through the whole night.
Of course, there were people who suspected that this incident could be fake, but we need to give credit to the tenant for refusing to sell his integrity even with such a huge offer.
