My boss felt so motivated that he went on leave to get drunk everyday in Dubai instead of in his guesthouse in Afghanistan. His contribution is sorely missed. It is quite strange not seeing him playing cards on the computer after sobering up from the night before. How many jobs would pay a card playing alcoholic about $11,000 a month? He is admired by collegues for being able to drink a bottle of gin, walk into the wall when leaving and still staggering back a little later for another drink. This is not the first mission (UN job) he has contributed to in this way. Cronyism and lack of accountability are popular in the UN.
His second in charge also went on leave so my boss is now a half-wit whoring fool. He loves the UN. He used his UNV ID card to get whores in Uzbekistan, ‘what so you mean no girls? Look at this!’ This is one of his favorite whore stories from his trips. He leaves the humanitarian business to engage in the exploitative business. He is not a man to spot irony easily. At the moment voter registration in the north is in his hands. It would be comic if not so sad. So far he has changed my deployment to another province a few times according to what his drinking friends tell him. I discovered this by asking an area manager i.e. his boss who after a while admitted he had changed my deployment based on
this man’s recommendations. He said. ‘You must respect your boss’. I explained I did not respect his judgment, intellect, character or him as a human being. Perhaps not the best way to carve a career in the UN. However, I am looking for other work. The decisions being made at the moment defy logic or common sense.
By the way a Taliban spring offensive is rumored to be coming any time soon.
