My letter writing "wins" again. I got mad letter writing skills. Let's recap...
Nabisco vs. Jessica's letter-Jessica wins=3 free boxes of Tomato Basil Wheat Thins
Corona Beer vs. Jessica's letter-Jessica wins=2 free crappy Corona t-shirts, Corona hat, 2 Corona plastic bracelets, 2 Corona lanyard things that allow you to wear your beer around your neck
Francesca's Collections vs. Jessica's letter-Jessica wins=2 free necklaces
My Apartment Complex vs. Jessica's letter-Jessica (kinda) wins=renegotiation
My apartment wanted to increase my rent by a butt load. I verbally tried to negotiate with the manager and talked her down to $50 a month increase. I told her this was still a lot and that I'd be shopping around. Since I really don't want to move I thought I'd try out my mad letter writing skills. I wrote the manager pleading my case and turned it in with my rent check. I got a call from her today telling me she could offer me a $25 a month increase on a 6 month lease. Not as great as I wanted because it's not for a 12 month lease, but I think I'm going to take a gamble on this one and accept the $25 increase. Thoughts? Advice. In the meantime I'm just going to take pride in my letter writing skills.
