I am not really sure what to think about my new roommate, although I am not complaining too much. It would be a lot worse if he was not holding up his end of the bargain. The thing is that everything that he does, he wants to make cash payments. That includes when he gives me his half of the rent, the utility bills and the internet bill. It is a little annoying to be honest, because I have to take the money down to the bank and deposit it. Obviously I have the app on my phone so that if I have a check to cash I can just take a photo of the front and the back. It takes a few hours for it to be deposited in the account, but that is less of a problem than having to stop at the bank and go in it.
The truth is that I am not really sure what the deal is with this guy, but it does not seem to be any of the stuff that you would expect it to be. If he were selling drugs, then there would be people coming and going to buy them. At least that is how it is with our people I have seen. We used to live across from this guy who did it and there was always a steady stream of people who would come to see him and then only be there for a few minutes. Obviously it is just long enough for them to pay for what they wanted and then they take off with it. I am thinking that he probably has some sort of job where he gets paid off of the books. I knew a guy who worked at a really fancy restaurant and he got a lot of tips.
