Part of the furniture

When we describe someone or something that's been in the same place for a very long time. You almost think that they're will be there forever. It's called "PART OF THE FURNITURE".

For examples
1. John has been the school caretaker for nearly twenty years. He's become a part of the furniture.
2. We came here so often, it's almost as if we are part of the furniture.
3. I joined the BBC in 1995, so I'm a part of the furniture at the BBC.
