There was a time when I was working in my other job that includes trees, we had to do one that was out of the city and far off that we had to stay at a hotel. When we finished for the day, it was just me and my work mate, the boss and others went back home, cause they wanted to be home, even if I means waking up at 4:30am to get to the job site on time (8:00am). Well, it was my first time being away from my family without any type of communication what so ever. It was just me and my work mate. I was in my room, looking at pictures of my family and I was crying because i missed them. He heard me and asked me to come out. I went into the kitchen with him and he was drinking beer and listening to sad love songs. I just sat there, crying and he said that he knows the pain to. His family is in a different country and he is not allowed to go back to the country to them. Reason: Classified. He said he drinks every night to keep his sorrow down, and that he misses his wife and kids. I told him I miss my family and that it was my first time being away without communication for a day and I am in pain. He giggled. We just sat, he was drinking his beer and I was drinking tea, we just listened to his music, thinking about our family's. The next day I was so happy to go back home after work and I asked my boss if I can call my dad and he gave me his phone. I called him and I was crying over it that I was allowed to leave the job site so they won't laugh as i was crying. when we came back to my bosses place and i got picked up by my dad, i was so happy to be back with my family. Some time ago, i got told that the mans family came back to him from the country he was not aloud to go to and he is happy. They moved out to a different place to live, but he is with his family again.
