Today a fellow colleague told me that he had just accepted a deployment to Nauru. Remembering that a riot broke in Nauru a few days ago, I was surprised that he seemed happy to go. I reminded him about the riot. He said, "Work is work. Doesn't matter where."

When I arrived home suddenly something clicked in my head. My colleague is from Afghanistan, for God's sake. The riot in Nauru is probably comparable to a bar brawl to him. I am such an idiot sometimes.
