Buh-Bye, Borders

It's over for Borders Books. Done. Finished. They are out of business. And in a lot of ways, it really doesn't surprise me. Every Borders that I ever went into was a complete disaster. And their staff? A bunch of not helpful hipsters is what I ran into more often than not. And this little snotty sign that some of them wrote and posted at a soon to be defunct store would seem to be indicative of just that. I don't know if Borders ever really stood a chance (what with the Kindle and the Nook and the entire World Wide Web to contend with), but when your hired help has this attitude, it isn't going to help much. (Click to enlarge if you don't have a bionic eye and can't read it.)

I bet all those left-leaning fuckstains are a bit embarrassed about that "we'd rather you shop at B&N..." line.

God, I'm just shocked the company lasted as long as it did...

One of the reasons why I like visiting your blog so much is because it has become a daily reference I can use in order to learn new nice stuff. It's like a curiosities box that surprises you over and over again.
