SH: Oh no!
SH: These shoes [that he ordered online] are made in China.
For new readers - we are trying very hard not to buy things made in China because 1. we don't want to support slave labor and 2. we would rather those manufacturing jobs stay in the US. Yes, I know it's like trying to empty the ocean with a teaspoon, but there you go.
What this means for me is that I buy Italian shoes.
Me: Are you going to send them back?
SH: I got two pair. The second pair is made in the US.
SH: I guess it's better to have one pair made in the US and one pair made in China than to have two pairs made in Indonesia.
Me: It's like carbon offsets.
