John Smith started the day early, having set his alarm clock (made in Japan) for 6 a.m. While his coffee pot (made in China) was picking up steam, he shaved with his electric razor (made in Hong Kong).
After hesitating for a moment, he put on a conservative white dress shirt (made in Sri Lanka), dark blue Levi’s jeans (made in Singapore) and a pair of comfortable tennis shoes (made in Thailand).
After cooking his breakfast in his brand 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) based on the kitchen’s radio (made in Japan), he walked nervously to his BMW (made in Germany) and drove to the nearest service station to fill it up with Venezuelan gasoline.
He spent the rest of the day diligently searching for an elusive good paying American job. After several unsuccessful job interviews, he returned home to continue searching using his laptop (made in Malaysia). At the end of yet another discouraging and fruitless day, John decided to take a break.
He put on his sandals (made in Pakistan), poured himself a cup of red wine (made in France) and turned on his TV (made in Japan).
His head turned round and round like a merry-go-round, thinking why he couldn’t find a good paying job in America.
He thought so hard about this issue, that finally he fell asleep exhausted on the living room’s couch. Can you help our friend John Smith find a decent job in the U.S.? Good Day.
