I have a friend who was hired by BP to supply 3 meals a day to the workers in Grand Isle. He is a caterer. Leaves home at 3:00 a.m. and is working 12-14 hour days.
They told him his job would last for at least 18 months.
Just came from a friend of my dad's for a fathers day dinner, anyway he was a crabber on the Gulf coast who is now subcontracted by BP, they came to them last week wanting next of kin information, these are the guys working the boats putting out booms.
My dad's friend said it is all a sham, all the rumors are true about them moving crews around for media, he said there is so much we are not being told, that there is such a black out, he said they were told last week of the dangers of the methane causing the boats to sink is a real possibility.
He looked really shaken, he said they have been told not to talk to media, he said there would be no warnings if the worst were to happen, that it would happen and all be over in a heart beat.
I am sick to my stomach as I write this, it means we really are all sitting ducks, this man has known me all of my life and he is one of my dads best friends, he is not a fearmonger.
He said that if he had a way to warn us he would but there would be no way because the methane would take them all out so fast. I asked him why is he going back tomorrow, he said he had no choice, his whole livelihood is gone, he has a family to take care of, he looked so defeated.
I came home told my husband all of this and he said that he was not going to live with doom and that what he was going to do was his normal thing, just up and leave for his job, lose his time at work, leave for hobbies... normal life basically... I said yes but we have 2 little boys that don't deserve this, he walked out of the room and went back to his xbox.
