Sad but True

  1. Joe Smith started the day early having set his alarm clock (MADE IN JAPAN) for 6am.

    While his coffeepot (MADE IN CHINA) was perking, he shaved with his electric razor (MADE IN HONG KONG).

    He put on a dress shirt (MADE IN SRI LANKA), designer jeans (MADE IN SINGAPORE) and tennis shoes (MADE IN KOREA).

    After cooking his breakfast in his new electric skillet (MADE IN INDIA) he sat down with his calculator (MADE IN MEXICO) to see how much he could spend today.

    After setting his watch (MADE IN TAIWAN) to the radio (MADE IN INDIA) he got in his car (MADE IN GERMANY) and continued his search for a good paying Australian JOB.

    At the end of yet another discouraging and fruitless day, Joe decided to relax for a while.

    He put on his sandals (MADE IN BRAZIL) poured himself a glass of wine (MADE IN FRANCE) and turned on his TV (MADE IN INDONESIA), and then wondered why he can't find a good paying job in Australia.....
  2. Indeed. We've sold the farm, haven't we?
  3. Joe is clearly doing better than the poor sods that made his consumer electronics! Having said that, the 'better job' Joe wants is probably a senior position in a service-based small business where he will work even less, and that has nothing to do with manufacturing the material items he uses.

    After a few glasses of red, Joe changes his tune and is thankful that he doesn't have a crap job working 15 hour days at $2 an hour like the chinese kid who made his alarm clock, and lives in a country where we get paid so much to do so little.
