no, i am not going to do this. i don't know the guy. i have two dogs, i don't need the help, and i don't want a "roommate", especially one who spends every waking moment drunk. i told him all this. then he offered to buy a tank of gas for my grill and two steaks if we could barbecue.
i have trouble with situations like this, because my instinct is to trust and believe, but my experience tells me i am getting scammed. so i said no thanks, as politely as i could.
i was really nice to this guy all the way through, and not judgemental, just honest. so why do i feel like an asshole?
