I'm sure when they show up to the IRS office, someone'll be in their face with paperwork to sign for some "in store credit". God I hate that place.

I still have a small warm spot in my heart for ol' CC. It's a total abortion of a company now (not to mention heartless) But I was a salesman during the halucian days. Part time I made > 50K a year going to school. Back when computers were 2K, selling a total BS warranty for $400 was no problem. Sometimes on a weekend I'd pull near a $500 a day in commission. Thankfully I wised up and kept on the school route, cause man, after old McCullough left it went to hell in a hand basket. But for what it was worth, me and pluggy are still boys.

They're probably in talks with GM and Ford.

In talks...just like the old men at the coffee shop that sit drinking coffee all day long, telling the same stories time after time to the same old men that have been their audience every day for the last six thousand four hundred forty because they've got nothing better to do and quite frankly, their best days are behind them.

/Now that's how you write a run on sentence.

Pluggy...Funny you mention that I still have a roll of those stickers. I too was a CC salesman back in my college days. I even cross-trained to every area of the store. I can remember making tons of loot around the holidays while my dumbass friends were working for $7.50 an hour at the grocery store. CCs epic fail was Divx. Had they never pulled that selfish, arrogant crap on customers they would have saved themselves the $500 million they had to recoup by eliminating commission. I'd still shop there if the staff were even remotely better than Best Buy.

Circuit City has been run by idiots from top to middle management for over a decade. Really, Divx was the beginning of the end, when they really started reminding me of Block Buster in how they viewed their employees and customers.
