Roommate up to sketchy things?

Hey Popville,
So I’ve been living in my current apartment (2bd/1ba) for a few months now. It’s a great location near Dupont, and definitely below market rate for the area. Walk to work, everywhere, decent size, etc. All in all, I’m getting a pretty good deal.
My question regards my roommate. I got the apartment through Craigslist, and my lease is a month-to-month sublet agreement is with the current roommate only, not the landlord, who’s a local guy who owns the whole building.

My roommate has been fine mostly, but I’m occasionally concerned about what he does for a living. He told me when I was moving in that he was a “freelance” graphic designer or something, but I doubt that. I suspect that he may be into possibly selling drugs or being a male escort to support himself. If he is into those, I don’t think he brings it back to our place–I don’t see any random characters at our place, at least not while I’m there. I’m just sorta concerned that some s***t could go down and potentially affect me, personally or legally.

Does anyone have experience with a similar situation? Do I have any potential risks from this situation? I’m torn between wanting to get the h**l out of Dodge and minding my own business with it. He’s been a fine roommate so far, and as an entry-level 20-something with a salary to match, I don’t want to have to search for another apartment.

Why do you suspect this?


um why dont you waterboard him, after all, we all know it is ILLEGAL TO HAVE PRIVACY. PRIVATE LIVES ARE NOT ALLOWED.

it is disgusting how people think they have any access to privacy.
