Subject: American Job
Regarding job layoffs in the U.S.:
Joe Smith started the day early having set his alarm clock (MADE
IN JAPAN) for 6 a.m. 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
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 AMERICAN 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),
turned on his TV (MADE IN INDONESIA),
and then wondered why he can't find a good paying job in .....AMERICA!!!
ORIGINATOR'S REQUEST: KEEP THIS CIRCULATING
P.S. Please note this message came from an address in Italy.
Thank you Italians! Many of US (in U.S.) need reminding of our
wayward ways! Thank you Mary Alice. JSteele, 11/29/2001.
P.S. Two: I learned that Mary Alice Powers
[Tickle] passed away on September 25, 2004. She died
of cancer after a brief period of illness as submitted by Sandra Lemley [Mitchell] in an Email dated
09/26/2004. I will remember Mary Alice as one of the most enthusiastic members of our Class of '56.
Others will surely remember her similarly and living life to the fullest. She was a great friend to many as
signified by her submission of the above words for Class '56 recongnition of America.
