Homeless Dude Found Living On Roof Of Waffle House

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Witnesses at a Waffle House restaurant in Georgia said police and firefighters were called when an air conditioning repair man found someone living on the roof."


It`s a fact of human nature that we almost never look up when we are walking down the street. Rosie O`Donnell and Oprah Winfrey could be having a naked mud wrestling match on the roof of a Waffle House and nobody would notice. (Thank God.)


The authorities were unable to determine how long the homeless man had been living on the roof. The man was too weak to come down from the roof; he`s lucky that he was found by the air conditioning repair man. If the air conditioning system didn`t need to be repaired, the homeless dude would have been a corpse before he was found.

I love the Waffle House but I may never dine there again. It`s not a pretty thought that while I`m munching on a waffle, a homeless man may be dying on the roof.
