There are probably a small contingent of folks here who know how it feels to literally drop everything to go somewhere quickly. For example, I've dropped working on family birthday planning to get to the airport within 2 hours to be in mainland China for a full month, living out of a go-bag.
In that case, we then were sent to a small boat operating off a Taiwanese island for a couple more weeks "on the way home."
While (ex) wives have trouble understanding how you can miss so many important family events, they sure enjoy the paychecks continuing to come in.
That's another story; I just threw it in since we are waiting.
