The Roommate Chronicles – Transfer Blues

Transfers are hectic, both for the one who is transferred and the one who is left behind. My latest roommate left the room today. He is transferred to a city, that is an emerging market, to “penetrate the possibilities of selling its products to the villagers”, in his language.

No matter how long a time is six months, it is not long enough to stop surprising at the unbelievable things my roommate does.
