So, I just moved into a new place - I had to pay some overlapping rent, so I'm strapped for cash at the moment. In fact, I was relying on a coming paycheck in order to pay this month's rent. This check was mailed to me from California on Friday, May 25. I live in Santa Fe, NM, and the check has still yet to arrive, though by all accounts it should have been here by now. Rent is due tomorrow, and I don't know what to do. There's also a possibility that my check did in fact arrive, but that my ex-roommate stole it. Unlikely, but possible. What should I do? I'm $450 short and have no idea how to come up with that much money by this time tomorrow. Any ideas?
