A Helpful Explanation

Conversation with a Kurdish co-worker during the 2.5 hour drive from Arbil to Sulaymaniyah

Co-worker: I used to work for [a different international development organization] before I worked for yours.
Housediggity: Really? How did you like it at the [different international development organization]?
Co-worker: I didn't like it much at all. My supervisor was Serbian. You know, the Serbs are alot like the Kurds. We have both been beaten and fought and suffered. We have many repressed feelings that we release on others when we can.
Housediggity: [chuckles] Interesting. I didn't know that. I'm glad you like your new job better.
