#318: Kami Taio (category: slang words)
Unlike shio taio (refer to #317), the expression "kami taio" is used not only for females but also for males who offer profuse services to others. When a person provides kami taio, the recipients make complimentary remarks, such as "He (she) is a kami!"
Since ancient times, the word "kami" has meant one of the Japanese gods (deific spirits). But in modern times, people call someone "kami", which indicates the fact that the one has done a great thing like a kami often does.
