Today’s roommate search strangeness

Woke up to find this response to my ad was sent overnight.

My place is cozy but it’s not modern or huge. So why would you be willing to pay 220% of the monthly rent?

And why do you need it in 4 days? What’s the hurry?

The “bed and TV” thing by itself wouldn’t be odd, but coupled with these other things, I smell a person who, at best, has got a life filled right now with major drama. At worst? He could be someone who cheated his drug supplier and needs someplace to hide out fast at double the list price.

I’ve watched Breaking Bad. I know how these things could work.

Besides that, I’ve watched two Jeffrey Dahmer shows on Netflix in the last two weeks. Even a hint of sketchiness reeks of impending cannibalism after that.
