Tony is a 58-year-old male that can never stay put. Six months in a place and he gets tired of it. The other day he told his friend Joe, “I’ve got to get out of here. I just can’t stand it any longer. I’m tired of this place and everything in it.”

“Tony! You know that places like this are hard to find. You ought to stay here. I like this place because it is quiet and full of some nice people.”

“Joe! I’ve got a Room and Board that I’m moving to. It is better than this place and I can come in at any time. I also won’t be taking any of my medicines. I hope that you understand.”

“Tony! I think that I understand.”

“Joe! I’ll be leaving this afternoon for the Room and Board. I’ll say my good byes then.”

Tony picked up his bag and walked out. Joe told the Landlord that Tony had moved out.

The Landlord Jon was mad. Jon said, “Did you know that Tony got away owing three months rent? Did he leave you with a address that he could be reached at?”

“Jon! Here is Tony’s address and also the address of his bank.”

Jon thanked Joe for the information and went to his office. He came back a few minutes later and told Joe, “That idiot Tony! That is the last time I rent a room here to a man like him. I’m going to start and check these people out first before I accept them.”

Joe also told Jon, “You should ask for a bank reference and make them fill out a application before they even move in.”

After saying that Jon departed and Joe went back to his work.
