This is absolutely amazing. How does someone go a year without noticing another person living in thier home. The only person that could beat her in a game of \'hide and go seek\' is Osama Bin Laden. How many times do you notice things that you could have sworn were placed in a different way or in a different place and wonder how it was moved? Makes you wonder.

Wow, must have been a nice size closet to fit a mattress in there. Amazing what some people will go through for a little dignity. I hope the owner of the house doesn't go too hard on her.

My favorite part is how they say she would shower and was found to be neat and clean lol. As far as pressing charges, I mean, I am not sure I would. She apparantly kept it neat lol.

All I can think of is the Futurama where Fry & Bender share an apartment....apartment being a tiny closet.

It didn't work for them.


How do you not notice at all?????
Did she never sneeze, have to use the bathroom at an inopportune time, cough...ANYTHING??

Going through every closet in my house right now..........

We see the appearance of a Grammar Nazi in the thread. A Grammar Nazi has no purpose in a thread other than to correct the mistaken spelling and grammar of others. No to reply to the original post would just be silly to the Grammar Nazi because that would require thought outside of the duties of the aforementioned Grammar Nazi.

Very interesting, I wonder how she did this. My other question is, is she cute? I mean he probably wouldnt have minded her sharing the apartment if she was cute. Course, this does make me want to take a look at my closets as well.

Ah, another difference between proper British English and the Americanized version. Sneaked is actually the proper and correct past tense of the word sneak.


sneak (verb) Its origins are shrouded in mystery ... From the beginning, and still in standard British English, the past tense and past participle forms are sneaked. Just as mysteriously, in a little more than a century, a new past tense form, snuck, has crept and then rushed out of dialectal use in America, first into the areas of use that lexicographers label jocular or uneducated, and more recently, has reached the point where it is a virtual rival of sneaked in many parts of the English-speaking world. But not in Britain, where it is unmistakably taken to be a jocular or non-standard form.


Sorry, whatukno, I can never pass up the opportunity to correct a Grammar Nazi.

This kind of reminds me of the "guy on the couch" in Half Baked lol except here it is the "girl in the closet"

LOL

After going "undetected" for so long the least the man could do would be to offer the poor woman a room! She obviously wasn't too much of a burden on him, lmao.

No disturbances, cleans up after herself...doesn't have an army of uninvited guests at my house.

...Man, I could live with that.

What did he expect? If you don't open your closet for a whole year there's bound to be something living in there...

Well living in Japan the last few years and observing the culture and lifestyle here this doesn't really shock me as much as it probably should ... dude was probably just working so much he didn't notice her lol seriously though that may be the case.
Hitting the sauce on the way home, which is a favored after-work release here, probably didn't help his awareness of the situation at home either.

There are probably people all over the country with people in their closets

Perhaps we should send all our homeless people to Japan?
They could time-share living quarters (undetected of course)

I think this man, if he is well enough to do should at least hire her to keep the place clean, or at least let her stay and do some light cleaning.

Hell, give her a whole bathroom to live in and she may even do laundry!
