SpongeBob cannot sleep so he drinks a glass of warm snail milk. SpongeBob wakes up the next day and finds out he'll be late for work. SpongeBob runs as fast as he can so he would not be late. SpongeBob is just seconds away and he’ll be late. SpongeBob made it to the Krusty Krab but he is a minute late. SpongeBob is really worried what Mr. Krabs will do to him. SpongeBob tries to impress Mr. Krabs by showing he is an on time employee. Mr. Krabs then asks what's wrong then SpongeBob confesses. He tells Mr. Krabs he is a minute late and begs Mr. Krabs to forgive him for what he did, to which he tells him to simply clean up the Salad Bar. Squidward says "if you love it there so much why won't he just live there". SpongeBob has an idea and he decides to live there so he would not be TardyPants ever again. SpongeBob makes the Krusty Krab just like home. The next day, Mr. Krabs enters the Krusty Krab. Mr. Krabs asks what SpongeBob is doing and how long he is there. SpongeBob tells Mr. Krabs about living in the Krusty Krab. Mr. Krabs disagrees. SpongeBob gave Mr. Krabs the money for that month's rent. Mr. Krabs then agrees. SpongeBob made the Krusty Krabs a little bit too homey. SpongeBob moves a lot of things, like: the patties inside his underwear drawer, the freezer is filled with his snow flake collection, the cash in the cash register is in the pickle jar, and the mustard is inside Gary’s shell. SpongeBob makes too many changes and Mr. Krabs can not take it anymore and decides to kick him out. Squidward thought he finally has time to relax unfortunately SpongeBob is back and annoys him more by playing his drums really loud. Squidward then decides to move into the Krusty Krab.
