so my roommate is the most kindhearted person ever, bleeding heart etc. and she just got back from the post office where she said there was this couple in their 30s outside. apparently their story is that they came down for the derby (over a week ago) and their backpack got stolen with all of their money. so they can't get back up to cincinnati, where they're from. they have kids back home. they have friends and family in our city but apparently no one wants to help them.
so my roommate said she'd ask us, and if it was okay with us, they could camp out in our backyard for the night. OR she's considering just driving them up to cincinnati if she can get a friend to tag along.
now is it just me or does this sound super sketchy? maybe i'm too much of a cynic... what would you do in this situation?
