A MAN has decided to move into his cubicle at work because his job doesn’t pay him enough to afford an apartment.
The video shows user @calm.simon packing his things into his cabin drawers while a voice-over plays.
“I’m moving from my apartment to my cubicle at work” he explains. “They don’t pay me enough to do both. So, as a protest, I will just live in my job.”
“Let’s see how long I can get away with it,” he says.
Several follow-up videos were created by @calm.simon to answer people’s questions. He said there were showers in the second building and that he kept his food in the fridge in the break room.
Some viewers argued that he was squatting in the building.
“Squatting is illegal and nothing I do is technically illegal,” he said. “It’s just frowned upon.”
The first video was viewed over 10 million times, with some viewers praising the TikToker.
“It will come to that at some point. Use your electricity, gas, water, internet! Power 2 U!” said one user.
Another person said, “With gas prices the way they are, I don’t blame you!”
However, many people have had questions about the logistics of living in a cabin without getting caught.
“Where would you go if you called in sick?” said one user.
“What about the cleaners?!” asked another.
Others shared their own experiences with themselves or a colleague who lives in their workplace.
“I did that in 2014. It was three weeks before I was fired and evicted. Good luck,” wrote one user.
“I had a colleague who did this at a job. Everyone knew and no one told him a word about it,” said another user. “He had a small grill that he used [sic] for cooking & everything.”
“My homeless colleague did this for a year… they never said anything to him,” said a third user.
