Lost in Translation 2
We were watching the testimony of Toyota’s CEO to the US Congress on TV today and I believe Carla found out what really happened on this big issue with the Toyota’s brakes recall!
Most likely the US National Safety Agency Regulatory Engineer had a good conversation with a Japanese Toyota Engineer in order to approve the Toyota’s cars quality and safety. The conversation should have gone more or less like that:
NSA Engineer: So, we are here to approve Toyota Safety Standard. How about the safety of Toyota cars?
Toyota Engineer: Ohhh, OK, no brakes…
NSA Engineer: Very Good! Excellent. Never breaks! Japanese Quality!
Toyota Japanese Engineer: Ohhhh, never brakes! Yes, never brakes!
NSA Engineer: Great! Never Breaks! Made to last! Approved! Time is Money! Next…
Really cannot be more Lost in Translation than that!
