Big Data Cultivation - Chapter 34
When Feng Jun woke up the next day, he heard the old man calling him outside.
“Hey, young man, one of your colleagues came to see you the other day, but you were absent. He’s tall and handsome.”
The colleague must be Wang Haifeng. Feng Jun glanced at his phone and found many missed calls, including calls from his family.
He was busy selling jade during the past days, so he set his phone to silent mode and even blocked call notifications.
Now that he was in the mood for chatting, he decided to call his family.
His mother answered the call and asked him whether he would come back home for the Mid-Autumn Festival.
Feng Jun gave a glance at the generator in his room. He then said with a smile. “Um, I’m afraid I can’t because I’m very busy these days. I can probably go home during the New Year Festival.”
His mother didn’t complain about it, but she reminded him to take good care of himself.
Feng Jun nodded and hung up the call. After that, he gazed at the generator.
It seemed that it wasn’t an excuse that his family’s business needed a generator.
His hometown was a small county city. The place where his mother’s shop was located was in the old district. Many of the lines were aging and privately built. The power supply was really not guaranteed. It was common for the electricity to be cut off four to five times a day.
Feng Jun thought about sending his generator to his parents after he found a new apartment.
However, he made the final decision that he would keep renting this room even if he found a new apartment. A 50-kilowatt generator had a poor charging effect, but it was better than nothing.
Anyway, he needed a few places to protect and hide himself.
Besides, a 50-kilowatt generator was too powerful for a small family business.
It was also very large, and it cost much to address it to his hometown.
He would buy another generator for his family in the future.
After that, he called Wang Haifeng.
However, both of Wang Haifeng’s two phones were turned off.
Feng Jun realized that he must have quarreled with his wife once more.
Mrs. Wang must be jealous again.
The second he hung up the call, someone called him, and it was an unknown number.
Feng Jun picked it up at once, and it turned out that the person saw his post on the Internet and wanted to talk with him about it.
Feng Jun was surprised that someone would call him within such a short time.
He knew that he offered a high price for the new apartment, but he received the first call in only 10 minutes.
The caller was a woman, and she politely asked, “Hi, do you want to rent a big apartment?”
“Yeah, and I’ve laid down all the requests,” said Feng Jun.
“I have a large apartment with three rooms and two halls on Youyi Road.” The woman sounded quite proud. “It’s about 180 square meters, and the monthly rent is eight thousand yuan.”
Youyi Road was in the city center, and it had a great cultural atmosphere and environments, so its housing prices and rents were also very high.
The woman was surely proud of herself because she had such a good apartment.
However, her apartment still didn’t deserve the monthly rent of eight thousand yuan.
Zhengyang City wasn’t the capital city, nor was it a first-tier city, and the average income wasn’t high.
There were similar apartments for rent on the Internet, and their monthly rents were about six thousand yuan, which was a very high rent in Zhengyang City.
Although the woman asked for an unreasonable price, Feng Jun didn’t care about it and asked, “What else?”
The woman hesitated for a second. She then said, “There is a garage, and it’s free. You should pay the utilities and pay the rent as well as the deposit for three months at the same time. My apartment is well-decorated.”
Feng Jun agreed without hesitation. “No problem.”
“Great, when can you come to see my apartment?” asked the woman in a delighted voice.
Feng Jun put the phone down and glanced at its screen. He then quietly ended the call.
In half a minute, the woman called him again. “Why did the call end all of a sudden? Is it a problem with your reception or mine?”
Feng Jun rolled his eyes.
“Neither, I just ended the call.”
“Why?” The woman was displeased.
“There is a condition for the apartment. Didn’t you see it?” said Feng Jun impatiently.
“Oh, you want to have a place to charge, right?” said the woman. “I can help you with it.”
“No, I don’t need you to help me find a place to charge. I want the apartment to have the facility itself; otherwise, I won’t pay so much money for it.”
“Mind your attitude!” The woman was annoyed. “My apartment has a great location, and the rent couldn’t be low—”
Feng Jun realized that the woman had no understanding of a 500-amp current at all, so he directly ended the call again and blacklisted her number.
He didn’t think it was rude. Since he was willing to pay a lot of money for his new apartment, it should deserve the price.
Besides, the woman didn’t have a good attitude either.
Feng Jun was rich, but he wasn’t dumb.
About 10 seconds later, another unknown number appeared on his phone screen.
The caller was a man this time, and he also wanted to rent his apartment to Feng Jun. He asked for ten thousand yuan for the monthly rent. It was a beautiful, quiet house in a suburb with a small yard.
Feng Jun went straight to the point. “Just tell me, can I charge there?”
“Well, 500 amps are too high.” The man was prepared and knew it would be difficult. “The main switch in my house can only allow 200-amp current to pass.”
Normally, 200 amps were enough for a normal family, even if they lived in a big house.
“Sorry, I’m afraid I can’t accept it.” Feng Jun was still very polite.
“Wait a second. I can pull an exclusive line for you.” The man was eager to make the deal with Feng Jun because a monthly rent of ten thousand yuan was indeed quite a lot. “You must pay the electricity fee, and you should tell me what you plan to do.”
“Sorry, I can’t,” said Feng Jun.
“Well, I’m afraid it’ll be difficult because you need too much electricity. I need a reason when I ask for an exclusive line from the village committee.”
“I don’t care how you explain it. I only care whether you can offer me a connector like that,” said Feng Jun.
The man hesitated for a while. He then said, “It’s really difficult. What if you’re doing something illegal?”
Feng Jun was amused. “You can pay more attention to me if you’re worried about that. Anyway, I’m willing to pay a lot of money for it because I have a special need.”
“Why couldn’t you tell me what you want to do?” asked the man again.
“Come on, your house can’t satisfy my needs. It’s not my problem,” said Feng Jun.
The man was displeased. “I can’t satisfy your need if you don’t tell me the reason.”
“Fine.” Feng Jun hung up on him.
In the following hours, Feng Jun received more calls, and many landlords tried to persuade him to believe that the condition he laid down was unreasonable.
However, Feng Jun was mad and refused to give in.
In fact, in addition to landlords, many letting agents also called him.
As professionals, they also advised Feng Jun to change his condition.
Feng Jun was getting angrier.
He offered a high price exactly because he wanted the new apartment to satisfy his special need.
Feng Jun became a little aggressive later on, and it sounded as if he hated the letting agencies.
Interestingly, the person who had the best conversation with him was still a man working in a letting agency.
