EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE

Alas, I had to discontinue this service.Why is a separate story. Please no calls at 4am asking me to drop everything and rush to the airport. No requests to issue money to your friends on the condition that you reimburse me later. I've been screwed more than once, but eventually got the message that half of you out there are plain assholes.

Would someone please explain me why all of the offenders happened to be US citizens?!

But for my permanent clients I always endeavour to remain on-line and within phone reach. My growing dislike for humanity in general does not apply to my permanent clients and business partners acquired before I turned misanthrope, so please relax.

Speaking of emergencies, I was thinking of compiling a list of troubles that may befall a foreign traveller venturing into my country. I decided, however, against such an undertaking in the belief that in the vast majority of cases trouble comes to those who deserve it, and those who deserve it will stumble somewhere anyway, and issuing warnings is thus a kill-time on my part. Do not go to wrong places, watch who you talk to and deal with, and generally adhere to good old Protestant ethic and behaviour patterns - your civilization greatest achievement - and you'll be fine.
