A member of my family came from a communist country to live with me.

I went several times a month to the government offices on her behalf, for four months, filling out forms, providing, information, and so forth. Because I went to the building so often, the security guard recognized me and always spoke to me. When I left the building one day, the security guard saw me and asked me what I was doing. I explained it to him and he said, "Come to my office. I'm going to help you." I followed him; he opened a locked door, and after we entered the room, I heard him lock the door behind him. When he turned on the light, I was surprised to see it was not an office, but a studio apartment.
