I can't work without woman.

I was well served by two Bangladeshi waiters in our club coffee house. They have good manner and always smiled. I had a good time talking with them, when I could understand better. They are both at their thirties and have been working here for almost three years. They are married, leaving the wives and children back home. Our of curiosity, I pondered them some personal questions, which they were frank to review.

Me: "Since you are away from home for so long, have you got girl friends here?"

Waiter: "Boss! If we don't have girl friends, lives will be very difficult for us."

Me: "I don't understand. Can you be more precise?"

Waiter: "Without our girl friends, our lives will be lonely. Our intimacy and sexual encounter enhance our well being. Otherwise, we have no desire to work. And working here for three years will be a torture without them."

Me: "What about your wives back home then?"

Waiter: "Wife without man is alright. As long as we sent back money to them. They will be happy with our children."

Me: "Who are your girlfriends here? Are they locals or foreigners?"

Waiter: "Boss! How can? The local girls will not eye on us. We have to pick the foreigners who are just like us. They are also lonesome too."

With the short discussion, it revealed the truth of man's needs in nature. They could be from firm religious background and up bringing back home. Their employment contract might spell strict conditions and rules of close contact with promiscuous. Nothing will stop them from searching their loves or lust. Now I know why they are smiling so sweet in face because they too have reached their satisfaction and contentment in heart. But for sure, I think it is not easy for such healthy young men to work so far from home. For those who are reading this article now. Do you think they are right or wrong?

Food for the heart. "It breaks your heart to see the one you love is happy with someone else - but it's more painful to know that the one you love is unhappy with you."
