quote [ Another former employee, Joe Bois, remembers being required report for work at a mall outpost at 4:30 am on Black Friday in 2004, only to sit idle for hours waiting for customers who never arrived. Bois, now a writer for the sports website SB Nation, wrote a piece in November arguing that searching for coherence in RadioShack?s strategic decisions was futile. ?It?s like retracing the steps and doings of a drunk person,? he wrote. ?Okay, here?s where he keyed the cop car. Wait, why?d he do that? I don?t know, but his pants are lying here, so this is before he stripped naked and tried to rob the library.? ]
When I was in the 7th grade, I spent four hours at a RadioShack for career day. It felt very much like Purgatory.
