i shared an apartment with my roomate. after the lease was up, i left. the electric bill was in my name, and i thought we'd had it changed to his after i moved. obviously not, though, because i got declined for a credit card, got my credit report, and discovered that i owe the electric company $250 for a bill that was unpaid a full year after i'd moved out. i talked to my roomate about the situation. all he said was, "sorry, you can tell them to change it to my name."
i mean, seriously, would they even do that? i don't see my old roomate paying me back for this any time soon, since he didn't even mention trying to pay it when we talked about it.
should i do anything about it, or should i just pay the damn bill myself and consider it a lesson learned?
