The Battle of the Rent Discount: Who's Right? 🥊

So, we've got a landlord who revoked an ex-employee's rent discount after she quit her job to focus on school. Valerie's mom is furious, claiming it's unfair to punish her daughter for prioritizing her mental health and education. The landlord, on the other hand, believes they're just sticking to the contract and worries that granting Valerie the discount could lead to a slippery slope of rent reductions for everyone. It's a tough call, and opinions are bound to be divided. Let's see what the internet has to say about this heated situation! 🔥
