The quick spread of the COVID-19 pandemic has effects on almost all the aspects of the everyday life of people. In fact, according to Inquirer, the whole Philippines is now put under State of Calamity due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
From the halting of operations of many business establishments, there are workers who are greatly affected as they too will receive no salary for the duration of the quarantine or lockdown in many areas. However, it is also true that utility bills such as water, electricity and house rental will still continue to come in due time. Good thing for this tenant, her landlady willingly offered to waive the full one month due on her rental!
In a Facebook post by Tpc Melinda Lagusad Tagra she shared a screenshot of the conversation she had with her landlady. The photo shows the landlady named Jenny suggested that Melinda will no longer pay for her monthly rental which will be due on April 15. She further instructed the tenant that she is offering them 1-month free rental as her consideration to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
With this, Melinda had no other words but thank you to her considerate landlady. Through her post, she wished for the best things and blessing for her landlady as she has been nothing but considerate of them during an unprecedented situation that forced them to simply stay at home.
Meanwhile, many netizens quickly reacted to the post as they wish for their landlady or landlord to also consider their situation and also give them a discount, especially in these times of crisis. The post now has 25,000 reactions and over 89,000 people shared the same on their timelines.
With this, we wish for Jenny’s rental business to prosper more in the future as her golden heart deserves all the good things this world has to offer. Continue being kind and considerate, Jenny! May your footsteps become an example to the rest of the landladies and landlords in this country.
