making a getaway

Bill’s back on the phone with me. Now he’s walked out of the office and gotten a ride with a friend’s husband who drove down to rescue his wife.

He says they can’t drive out because of the fires. It’s the union burning the tires. When I think to myself “how can I save my job?” burning tires is the first thing that pops into my head.

He says the students are just there to enjoy the party. I guess students everywhere can turn anything into a party.

I hope they get out. I hope the syndicate (union) doesn’t attack the Americans in the big BMW trying to escape. And hopefully no one will burn Bill’s car overnight. Heck, maybe they will and we can finally get a big enough one for vacations.

    Tire burning….hmmm. This starts to sound like the LA riots several years ago. I agree, no logowear for a while. How ironic that being on overseas assignment protects one’s job more than being here. Another hmmmm.
