Poor guy should have saved his life and then sued IF he lost his job...how sad to be that afraid of homelessness.

More ignorance of the reality of flooding then fear of homelessness IMO.

I see this quite a bit in construction. We call it being "job scared". I've actually had to yell at people and threaten to beat them to get them to stop doing something stupid and/or lethal just because they wanted to get their task done and not get fired.

The lot apparently housed long term parking,and some of the cars were very high end. No one expected 6 feet of water,above ground .

That has never happened here . The garage owner,was worried about cars being stolen is my guess.

They showed it all on the news here,all those cars are wrecks now,and this guy died for it.

People are that afraid of being jobless .
