I have a friend who used to do site visits to an American plant in Juarez. I asked him, "Do they drive you in an armored SUV?" No, "Just a white van obviously full of Americans."
He no longer volunteers for this. Something about he'd rather his kids have a father than the extra pay.
ABC's "The B... in Apt 23" did a gag about how no one gets Dilbert strips pinned on the local coffee shop's wall. I didn't realize what they were referring to until I read these Elbonia story arcs. So unfunny.
