Did you know? The term "boycott" originates from a successful Irish effort in the 19th century to shun this rich guy named Boycott who was trying to evict rural tenant farmers. No one would work for him, sell him stuff, or even deliver his mail. Ultimately he failed to make a profit from the farmland he owned, and his name is now a part of history :)

@toomuchbread So the original boycott was also a strike, and an embargo, not just refusing to buy someone's product...

I think our bus driver in Ireland tried to tell us this but i couldn't understand his accent lol
