This might be very intuitive for someone to suggest me to ask him to put it back. But please hold on.
I live in a hostel and changed room to the next room which had a cooler already (owned by my new roommate). I put mine outside in the corridor which is a common practice. The old cooler was bought by me last year and left in the corridor because of space crunch. The new person in my old room has started using it now without asking me.
Scene: he is my hostel mate but we never talked. He is not new here (he came to the college 2 years ago, in the same batch/hall as me).
It is very hot here.
The person in charge of the hostel did not respond to the mail below:
The person/ people living in (room) currently, uses/ use a cooler without the permission of the owner and most probably even without paying the additional cooler charges.
Just because I or anyone else might make them put it back outside doesn’t make them less of a thief. It will be called a reclamation.
Kindly make them put it back outside. Also a humble request: This mail doesn’t need to be shared with anyone else in the hall if it doesn’t concern them. Thank you Name
How do I ask the person to put it back?
I'm unsure how to respond if they tell me: "you are already using a cooler in your room. Why do you need to take this back?", or "can we please use it for summers only since you already have one?"
Also, there are possible damages to pump and motor (which is common due to poor quality water; I paid 500 rupees for the fan motor two months ago).
