54: Ich schreibe dem Vermieter | I write the landlord

Address related words for sending letters & the dative case (dem, der, dem).

Paul is near his apartment and opens Fritz’s letter. It’s two weeks old and it has the cell phone number of Fritz’s landlord. Paul wants to call him and have the garage door repaired in Fritz’s name. That way, he’ll be able to open it afterwards, and sniff around inside. His problem: He doesn’t sound like Fritz. He meets his neighbor and helps her carry her shopping bags. On his cell phone, he receives a push notification for an e-mail that his former online date Laura wrote to him. He can only read “You idiot!” on the home screen. Of course, he wants to know more, but he can’t find the actual e-mail in the app. Where is Laura’s e-mail? What is the reason for her long silence? Why is she, too, now saying that Paul is an idiot? How can he arrange the garage door repairs, so that he can sniff around inside?
