My roommate and I have had an empty third bedroom in our apartment for a while.
We had an additional roommate for several months, but the guy moved out and we didn’t rent the room until recently. My roommate met a guy at work that needed a room. I didn’t know much about the guy and I wasn’t particularly happy that my roommate made the decision without fully consulting me first. I came home from work one afternoon and the room was occupied. My roommate argued that this would save us a couple of hundred dollars every month. I couldn’t complain a lot, because the guy had already moved into our apartment. Three weeks ago, the new guy lost his job and he has been unemployed. Rent is due in a week and I have no idea how he is planning to pay his portion. Yesterday I came home from work early and I saw the guy walking out of my bedroom. I’m pretty sure he was taking marijuana from my room, but I can’t be certain. I had a bag of marijuana next to my bed and I thought the bag was rolled up tightly. When I walked into the bedroom, the bag was completely open. It’s hard to tell if there was any marijuana missing or not, but everyone in the apartment smokes weed and this guy is the only person without a job. I decided not to confront him because we will probably ask him to leave next week when he can’t pay the rent on time.
