Probably can't get a job as a garbage barge captain at the moment lol. Personally I think after something like that he would want a career change.

You have to understand the thinking of the European "entitlement" society. The right to have and keep your job is a totally different thing in Europe than it is here in the US. I have heard that to fire an employee in France can be a two-year process where you have to continue to pay their salary.

This is akin to an arsonist setting a house on fire and then rushing in to save the occupants, and wanting the praise and accolades but not the blame.
