to our landlady... Who sent me an email yesterday (November 30th), looking for the December rent check. Her email was couched in terms of "just wondering whether you mailed it" and "mail service here is so unreliable"...etc. Legally, we have until the 7th of every month to pay rent "on time". We have never been later than the 1st - ever. (And in fact, the check should arrive in her mailbox today.) So I would like to send her a very polite email that makes it clear that I don't appreciate her looking for the rent before it is due. You didn't get it by the 5th? Contact me. You didn't receive it before it's due? Leave me alone! Looking for ideas... What would you say....and how would you say it?
