The holidays are often filled with unwanted house guest and relatives who come and eat all your food, give you no privacy at all and just wreck the time you do have off from work. Dealing with family during the Holidays is just one of those things. Just be thankful that they eventually leave.
Unlike the person in this next latest viral video floating around. If you ever wondered why you're out of milk so fast or who ate the Chinese leftovers you had in the fridge.. wonder no loner. It aint the Ghost of Christmas Past, just so you know...
Now, let's be honest here. This video clip is fake. It's a take off of Paranormal Activities. But before you dismiss the whole incident as a completely unheard of event, perhaps you should take a look at this story that took place a couple of years ago in Tokyo.
Tokyo homeless woman lived in stranger's cupboard for a year
A homeless woman has been arrested after living undetected for almost a year in a tiny cupboard in a man's house in Japan. The woman, identified as 58-year-old Tatsuko Horikawa, was found by police searching the home of the man, who believed he lived alone in Fukuoka.
The resident of the house, who has not been named, became suspicious that he was the victim of repeat burglaries after he noticed food was going missing from his refrigerator. The man decided to install security cameras linked to his mobile phone and on Wednesday caught images of a woman walking around the house while he was out.
Believing he had detected the burglar, the man contacted police and, after an exhaustive search of the property, officers found the woman hiding in the top of a built-in cupboard designed to store bedding and mattresses.
Behind the sliding door, she had laid out a thin futon and had several plastic drinks bottles, police said. There was just enough room for her to lay down, they added.
"We searched the house, checking everywhere that someone could possibly hide," said Hiroki Itakura, a police spokesman. "When we slid open the closet door, there she was, curled up nervously on her side."
Horikawa told police that she had nowhere to live and had first taken up residence in the cupboard, in a room that the man rarely used, about one year previously when the owner of the house had gone out and not locked the door.
Police believe she may have moved between different addresses in the neighbourhood during her stowaway year.
The woman did not apparently steal any money or other items from the house, but did make use of the shower and toilet.
The police described Horikawa as looking neat and clean. She was charged with trespassing.
So before you start wishing for death to come to Uncle Bob, perhaps you should take a look at the people you're around and realize that they're a whole lot better knowing that at some point when the Holidays are over, they'll be gone. Unlike strange unwelcomed, unknown house guest that live in your cupboard and crawl space.
