Well, we're at the end of September and my roommate is MIA. I haven't seen her much at all the last couple of weeks. She did say when she moved in that school keeps her very, very busy - but still. Very strange. In case she is 'late' with rent again, I have already transferred her damage deposit from my ING account over to my chequing account. That way I'm protected if she's late again. If she shows up today/tomorrow, I'll just transfer it back. If I don't see her, i'll be asking for at least 6 month's worth of post-dated cheques.
I love ING's no fee's and my unlimited chequing (and therefor transferring) account.
