15th place (joint)
An old man picks up a job of a security guard and was told to sit by the door for the whole day without anything with him; just him and the chair itself; not even a weapon to fend for himself. By the time I saw him, he looked extremely tired and bored with no one to talk to. Sound of birds chirping occasional car's engine revving has become his only entertainment. Does he think that his life sucks? The sad look on his face prevented me from asking anything more about his life.
