Earlier this year, my wife and I were all set to move from Brooklyn to Toronto when our plans changed and we had to stay in Brooklyn. We opted to get a roommate in Toronto to cover some of the expenses of temporarily having two apartments. It worked out perfectly, since a friend from Brooklyn was moving to Toronto at the same time.
At least, it seemed to have worked out perfectly until I walked into my apartment in Toronto that morning. I was a little surprised to see a guy I didn’t know in the apartment, but I assumed he was there with my roommates. He seemed relieved to see me and said he didn’t want to just leave the door unlocked, so was he supposed to leave the keys with me?
