Lodger Who Pays Nothing
noun, verbal noun
To stay alive in some climates, some have no choice but to be a freeloader. That is, a lodger who pays nothing. If you live somewhere with an inhospitable climate but you can't afford to pay rent, your only option is to live with someone for free.
This is a slightly unusual case because both kanji use the kun'yomi. You haven't learned that reading for 候 yet, so here's a mnemonic to help you:
What? You've become a freeloader? I can't believe you've gone so low (そうろう)!
If you're going to be a freeloader, you should at least learn to cook.
I can't say anything too strongly because I'm staying here for free.
So I lost my job and started living as a freeloader.
