A twenty-three-year-old employee of Google is saving 90% of his income by living in a box truck parked inside the company’s headquarters. The engineer named Brandon, says he is only in the truck while sleeping or doing laundry. He confirmed that he uses perks provided by the company such as gourmet food, a gym, showers and a bathroom to supplement what his truck lacks. Brandon has launched a blog and says he has a great social network and that he has found people to very accepting of his lifestyle. He says the biggest benefit is not paying rent in the Bay Area. Google has not endorsed the idea of employees living in the parking lot, but they have not removed Brandon either. The engineer says for now, he will continue to live on the premises. He says the company values thinking outside the box, and though he lives in one, he can think outside of it. —Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell.
