Quick post this Saturday morning. The title says it all, but here’s the details:
Yesterday, I learned that my roommate, S quit or was fired from her job. I don’t know the details, it’s none of my business, but I get a little anxious when a roommate looses their job because it makes me wonder whether they can make the rent payment. I didn’t specifically ask because it makes me feel shallow asking such a question to comfort my financial gains over her loss. I did ask what went wrong, why do you think it happened, and so forth like any person would. She gave no indication that she was going to move out.
I know she’s been applying to jobs and has one interview lined up on Monday. So, she is making the effort to find another job. I’ve had only one instance where a roommate couldn’t make the rent payment because their hours were cut back. This person ultimately ended up moving out after dodging an entire rent payment.
The question that begs to be answered. What would you do if my roommate can’t make the rent payment. I’m open to ideas.
