I’ve got a bunch of stuff in an “Uncle Bob’s Self Storage” up in Rochester, NY. As I was checking in when I got the unit, I asked if anyone had ever tried to live in one, as in “Snow Crash” (And a story by Aido in City Limits). The clerk said no, but recounted another tale to me.
There was a 40-something man, who rented one of the units big enough to store a car in. He didn’t keep anything in there, let it sit empty. But, every day, he would drive to the storage lot, open up his unit, drive his car in and eat his lunch.
I guess some people just need privacy.
