Can I slide on the deposit?

Dear all,

Client: Can I slide on the security deposit?
Landlord: I'm afraid not, it's already cheap enough.

I made up the conversation. I would like to know if the Client's line makes sense. I intend to say "Can you give me a discount on the deposit?"
I would appreciate any comments.

    I wouldn't understand "slide" to refer to a discount. If you asked "Can you let the security deposit slide?" I would presume it meant "Can you waive the security deposit?"
