My impression was that he gets kind of burned out and just wants to get out and be on his own rather than posing for a lot of pictures with people and making small talk.
Better to be in the cheap seats and have fun with the guys (and girls)
This type of scenario comes with the job.Compare Doshus work with a guy who digs holes /has a low paid job in Mc Donalds. No contest. At the end of the day his was a career choice.So if Doshu has to spend time travelling[not in any cargo hold] or talk to boring people so be it. Cheers, Joe.
