    Talking Hes Being Charged $2500 For Shed Squatting

    Employee Squats On Company Grounds. Worker Making $100K Lived Rent-Free For 3 Years

    ORANGEBURG, N.Y. -- At $100,000 a year, the maintenance man could afford his own place. But a New York state report says the worker lived in a paint shed at a mental hospital for three years.

    Authorities said he made himself at home in the shed with a couch, microwave and refrigerator.

    According to the official report, the maintenance man earned $100,000 last year working for the Rockland Psychiatric Center, north of New York City.

    He had been staying there rent free. He's moved out, but officials say he's being charged $2,500 for shed squatting.

    You can just imagine it down the local pub - "Where do you live? Oh, at the Psychiatric Hospital"...

    I saw parts of Caddyshack on TV last weekend. For some reason an image of Bill Murray came to mind when I read this article......
