Are You Kidding Me

Kate: Hey Ronnie! I heard you’ll be leaving next month.

Ronnie: Yeah. I have a lot to deal with when I get there. I rented an apartment too.

Kate: That’s great. How much did you have to deposit in advance?

Ronnie: I didn’t have to pay up front. I pulled some strings so there was no deposit.
