20 years is a long time. He must be thankful to have shelter of any kind, awful when you think about it. :(

Indeed, Still Waters is correct. Despite all of our joking I'm sure everyone agrees that this is a sad and tragic situation. No one should have to live in a sewer.

Now I feel kinda bad about seeing any humour in it. :cry:

They can't kick them out. They have 'squatters' rights. :whistle:

Look at the bright side, at least the dog didn't need to be potty trained. B)

Arrgh...between Eldorado and Biff I simply *can't* not see the humour here.

That said, I still feel really bad for the guy.

I was just thinking though, sometimes humour can serve to highlight certain situations that need fixing.

22yrs he's been sitting on the can for, Lilly and he still managed to bag a wife, a TV and a dog!  No need for sympathy, imo.  Am actually kinda jealous.

(lol)

Wow, Eldorado is right...perhaps the guy hasn't done so bad after all.

Like they say, be it ever so humble there's no place like home!

I've seen much worse living conditions for homeless people right here in my own city. At least they had a roof over their head.


But I still have to wonder, do they ever notice when the dog farts?
