A homeless man’s endorsement

Well, it was an endorsement, sorta... A transient was found sleeping in a new car at Burien Toyota a short time ago and the authorities were called, according to a brief in the Federal Way News.

The fellow told the King County sheriff’s deputies who responded that he was homeless and sleeping in the back seat of the car was simply a means of survival.

Nonetheless, he was given a trespass warning and told if it happened again, he’d get arrested.

The man said he understood and then apologized.

According to the newspaper, as the man walked away, he turned to the employees and said, “I love your cars.”
