Oｈ ! my God story NO ３０
American people buy security with money
There is a saying in America、"you have to pay for security."
It means that they pay for security to protect themselves.
There are two types of apartment in America.
One without a doorman and the other is with a doorman.
The apartment with a doorman is expensive.
The apartment without doorman is less expensive.
I live in a
Strangers can't come in if there is a doorman.
You can go in and out from the front and back door of my building.
So there are always two doormen keep watching.
They have three shifts, daytime, evening and from night to morning.
It is for twenty-four hours.
When someone comes to visit me,
a doorman will make a contact with my room.
No one can come in until I say ok.
If I receive a package when I am out, they will keep it for me.
But they know all about residents' privacy.
Of course they wouldn't tell anyone about residents' privacy.
But they know everything.
At what time,
what kind of person comes
and what kind of relationship they have etc.
You may be able to buy the security of safety but not for the security
