Shit happens, but it sucks when it happens to me.
I saw a place over the weekend. It's excellent for what I need. I met the roommates and hit it off with them. I even wrote a check for the deposit (though I kept it until we could iron out the issue of when I could move in).
Therein lies the problem.
The place was initially available July 1, which was perfect for me, because I need to move by then. Then it became July 5, though they would make arrangements for me to stay on the couch.
Last night I got a call. The roommate who was supposed to be moving out won't be doing so until at least Aug. 1.
I have a few other leads, but nothing that's a lock. I'll have to keep searching.
This shit always happens to me.
