I am not even worried about identifying the bug,just confirming it is not a roach would make me happy.

It doesn't look like a wasp and it doesn't look like a roach, either. Some sort of outdoor bug I think.
It helps to give a location of where you live since there's different bugs in different places.

Well,so long as it is not a roach,or infestation bug or anything I'm good. I can put away my flashlight,flamethrower and bottle of xanax and get on with the day.

The top view is better... no, not a wasp. Could be a masked hunter... or at least closely related to it. https://ento.psu.edu/extension/factsheets/masked-hunter

No, definitely not a roach.

Hmm,ya,kinda looks a bit the same. I'm not gonna gonna panic and call the exterminator and just assume he hitched a ride inside. But I'll keep my eye's peeled for a bit. Hopefully there is not more. :-) Thanks guys.

I agree, not a roach..Not sure what it is, but it's harmless short of maybe being able to sting but that doesn't mean that it is aggressive enough to do so.

If you don't see a pattern of behavior indoors then nothing to worry about anyway.
