If we're not buying Japanese goods, does that mean we're going to boycott Japanese brands altogether? Wouldn't that mean those sly Japanese companies don't get any royalties? Hooray!|
Let me see... I'll just tell my Dad to chuck away his Honda, and my uncle to stop driving his employers around in that Toyota RAV4 the company has. My grandparents will have to, unfortunately, suffer in summer because we're boycotting Japanese things and they have a Mitsubishi air conditioner. My Mum has to stop watching her favourite DVDs, because the player's a Panasonic. And she can't switch on the TV, even, since it's a Toshiba!
My friend will have to give his NEC mobile phone to someone else. Pity, it's a really slim phone and he's really fond of it. His twin brother would surely kick and scream and everything, but it can't change the fact that we'll have to deprive him of his Playstation 2, as well as his GameCube and PSP. He can still have his Xbox, though it's a pity he'll have to spend the money he saved up elsewhere, since he can't go buy a PS3 now.
My other friend would probably hate me for this, but she will definitely have to spend more money for an ipod, because her TEAC obviously is being boycotted. Her mother might get pissed, too, because she hasn't transferred her family photos from their Canon camera yet, and now they have to get rid of it. And even if she did transfer it in time, with the lack of harddisk she wanted to burn them onto a CD. Pity they only have a stack of TDK brand ones.
My accountant cousin's job would be made so much harder if you took any their Casio calculators. I guess this means that she'll never be out of a job because it's going to take her so much longer to do stuff, and there is so much stuff to do.
And me? Well, I'm happy about this all, because now, even if I had to play or practice something on my electronic keyboard, I would have the perfect excuse. "I'm sorry, I can't. My keyboard's a Yamaha."
