    John West Tuna after finding out that their dolphin friendly tuna was not, they were using a device that attracted all sorts of fish and now that this has been discovered they are going to be truly dolphin safe, not good enough.

    I will follow this post as what companies do seems to get lost in this busy world of info and it is important to support the businesses that do the right thing.

Supposedly we should praise our boys for their achievements on the sporting field and our girls for their pretty clothes
    We go to Maccas and I can honestly say ive never seen any such magazine. Is it made by them or us there a religious group distributing them thru your local maccas?

    We are in NSW and I've never seen it. Have asked around too, and looked at the McDonalds website- no mention. Weird.

    I feel so petty for my boycotts there's not really a deep and meaningful reason for them, more that something they did annoyed me.

    Telstra - for sending jobs over seas when we need them here too, and for the stupid automated recordings to get to talk to someone. Optus is fast becoming just the same so they could be next in line.

    2 of the 4 Maccas we have in this town because their service is horrible. We got sick of our orders being wrong EVERY time, once my husbands burger was missing the burger part. Another is almost one the out too, maybe that's a good thing though :-)

    A local restaurant because we went there with family for breakfast one time and 2 people didn't get their order. They weren't busy and when told about it they said they were being cooked right then 15 minutes later still nothing and no one came to say anything. When told again that they still hadn't gotten their order which was just eggs and toast nothing special they went to check again 10 minutes later still nothing so we asked for the money back and told them to forget it because everyone else had finished they didn't want it now they weren't going to give the money back. Very poor service.

    Subway - ordered a vegie delight thinking I was gonna get a vegie pattie or something and only asked for lettuce and cucumber, the roll got wrapped and I was not delighted. I was in shock that that was it.

    I want to boycott the media in general. But that's a hard one to do!

    I also boycott caged eggs. You have to be careful these days, some manufacturers still have inhumane conditions but because they aren't in a cage (just a small overcrowded pen) they can market as not caged!
