The agent: “This one is facing South-West.”
[Opens the door.]
Me: “But… There are no windows?”
Agent: “Yes, there are! (Opens the bathroom door.) Look!”
Me: “This is not a window, this is… (Looks in his French-to-English dictionary) …ah, you don’t have a word for that.
A slit? A basement window?
Agent: ” This is no basement. This is 30th floor.”
Me: “Sure but how can I tell that it’s the 30th, and not the basement?”
Agent: “It’s written on the lift.”
…Anyway. Not interested.”
Agent: “The landlord has another one, if you want to see.”
Me: “Does it have windows? Does it have light?”
Agent: “It has a washing machine. You want to see?”
