Bathroom Fly

What’s This Bug?
I live in the San Joaquin Valley in California, and these "flies" are mainly outside and in the garage, although they do not hesitate to enter the house if the opportunity arises. They seem to be sitting around more than they actually fly. When disturbed (like trying to take their picture) they fly a short distance and begin sitting again. I would appreciate your input. Thank you

Hi George,
This is a Bathroom Fly, so called since they are often found in bathrooms. The eggs are laid in pipes and the larval flies exist in the sludge caught in drainage pipes. A sewer in your garage would explain their presence.
