A Friendly American

For the petition of my visa extension, SLAC ISO asked me to provide a full copy of my current and expired passports, including the blank pages. (My colleague Brandon commented: they want to check if you had been to North Korea!)

While scanning my passports in the hallway, a couple of workers working on the office space remodeling, passed by.
Eddy (one of the workers): A passport! Going to travel?
Me: No... just preparing some documents.
Eddy: That's how you get to stay! Where are you from?
Me: Taiwan.
After a few words of greetings,
Eddy: Thank you for helping our country!
Me: Thank you for letting me stay!
