To sneak into a house and live among its occupants without their knowledge. People who attempt this are referred to as phrogs
. Phrogs try to respect the house’s inhabitants as if they were roommates, by not breaking or taking-although mooching food is sometimes necessary for survival. Phrogs rarely stay in a single house for more than a few days as the fear of getting caught settles in. Then it’s usually time to move on and the phrog will hop to a new pad. Phrogging can be attempted solo or in groups.
Anna hated working for a living, but needed money to survive. For years she worked her ass off so that she could watch her hard-earned money disappear as she payed her ridiculously high rent and bills. Then she heard about phrogging and decided to sneak into some of the oversized houses or McMansion
s in the suburbs. Now she enjoys her afternoons sipping tea and reading while the homeowners are out at work all day.
