Repairman Discovers Homeless Person Living In Homeowner's Crawlspace
"A Washington state woman said a repairman examining her furnace discovered someone had been living in the crawlspace beneath her home.
Velma Kellen, 73, of Yelm said she called a repairman recently to determine why her new furnace wasn't heating her home and he came out of her house's crawlspace with unexpected news, KOMO-TV, Seattle, reported Wednesday. -UPI
The repairman discovered empty beer cans and liquor bottles underneath the house. The squatter cut the duct so that the warm air was blowing down on him.
We tend to romanticize the homeless, but many of them are leeches who prey on the elderly and the vulnerable.
The homeowner suspects the intruder was the source of marijuana smoke she often detected in her home.
If a homeless dude is living in my crawlspace, and enjoying my heat, the least he can do is share his stash with me.
