Developing countries

Here's a hint for companies considering outsourcing. You have obviously never set foot in a developing country. When you do, you will realize that foreigners, particularly Americans, are treated as walking banks from the moment we arrive to the moment we depart. You can practically see the dollar signs light up in the locals' eyes when you walk into a restaurant, tour agency, or (God forbid) a local souveneir shop. It doesn't take a "prior criminal record" for someone to decide that foreigners are all rich and therefore won't miss a little of their vast savings. All that takes is someone who is poor, naive, and clever: Poor enough to need money, naive enough to think all Americans are wealthy, and clever enough to devise a means of getting into your bank account.

I couldn't have said it better myself.


  • Last post

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
