A teacher? It could be worse [and this isn't meant to upset you, so don't read it if it will
Friend's wife had 13-week old baby when she received her posting notice in AUGUST (to one of the minor islands - no airport or direct ferries). She, her husband, their well-connected koumbara
, and everyone else they could enlist tried mightily to defer (new baby, right?), or post close to home. Nothing worked, and it was take the job or move to the bottom of the very long, loooong list. They needed the money: Yiayia
moved in, she went.
