I must be trying the wrong things when trying to obtain a raise from my boss. The truth is, I never even considered jumping out his window naked.

Did he get the raise?

Capitalism in a nutshell.

The fisherman were Chinese. China is a Socialist paradise, where everyone is taken care of and nobody wants more! Except these 5 Chinese guys on a South Korean fishing boat.

China isn't a socialist paradise. It is a faux-communist hell.

Norway is (the closest thing to) a socialist paradise.
Guess which country has the highest standard of living in the world?

2005-03-20 02:25:26 PM  
wait, how does jumping off the boat help get them a raise?

// am i the only one who doesnt' see this?

Different culture, different customs.

In the USA when unions do not get raises, they go on strike. In China, apparently the fishing unions just put their clothes into a plastic bag and jump naked out a window and swim to shore. Yeah that will show old skinflint that they mean business, less fish to catch. Most people in the USA just slack off until their boss notices it, and then say they are not paid enough and if they get a raise, they won't slack off any more.

JohnNowak is a farking tool. Settle down, and break the pills in half next time, troll.

The way I understand the story, the boat was out, then came in but dropped anchor offshore. My guess would be that the fishermen said, "Okay, we did a good job for you. We want a raise."

Naturally, the boat's captain, knowing he was half a mile offshore, told them politely where they could stick their suggestion. Sensing that their negotiating tactic failed, the fishermen decided to offer their services elsewhere.

I think the Chinese were trying to enter NZ as illegal immigrants. Not so much as after a raise, as just after a better life.
Choosing New Zealand for a better life shows how bad things must be in China.
