When you have worked on the same drilling rig for a certain amount of time, no doubt you will meet lots of people along the way. These are people of various races & cultures holding different roles and working in different shifts. Like it or not, the daily events onboard the rig requires interaction and communication among the crew. From this you will come across interesting characters saying things which will stick in your memory.
