What would you do if you were suddenly homeless?
You come home from work, put your key in the lock and—what the? It won’t go. You realize the locks have been changed.
You reach into your pocket, pull out your cell phone, and start making phone calls. No one in your entire address book answers.
It’s winter, and it’s getting cold. You head back to your car and, sure enough, it won’t unlock.
This is weird. Really weird. But you can puzzle over that later. Right now, you’re freezing, and you haven’t eaten since that sesame seed bagel you had at 10:30. You should have packed a lunch. Damn.
You walk to a corner store and try your ATM card. Nothing. Credit card. Nothing. Backup credit card. Nothing. Scrounge up some change and get some Doritos.
I bet you can guess what’s going to happen when you try to go to work in the morning, if you can even get there. The whole building has been vacated.
What do you do? Where do you go? Where do you sleep? How do you eat? How do you start over completely from scratch with no help from any friends or family?
