Today’s guest post comes from Joel Spolsky by way of Inc. Magazine.
Joel’s closing comment about the death of Circuit City:
For a business owner, there’s nothing more satisfying than watching honest dealers expand their operations while the schmucks, with their going-out-of-business markups, go down the drain.
Man, that’s just perfect. Let ’em shrivel up and die, they definitely EARNED it.
I’ll admit it. I spent $20 at Circuit City about 15 years ago. But just once. Really.
My only excuse: I wouldn’t have to drive across town to Radio Shack (yes, I am ashamed).
Circuit City wasn’t even a fun place to browse if you’re a gear head (or a wannabe gear head). What’s THAT about?
As for B&H, it’s enough to say that all my camera gear comes from there. Ouch:)
