Schadenfreude
Anyone remember a year ago March, when Circuit City, in a breathtaking display of gross corporate bastardry, fired all their best workers and offered them their jobs back at lower pay rates?

So! Customers have decided to fire Circuit City.

Interesting. I was at Circuit City shopping a few months ago, and was left waiting for a very long time, then told that the product I was looking for didn't exist, much as if I went in asking for a positronic replicator.

I did find my WACOM 6x8 tablet elsewhere, while considering Circuit City to be a very poor place to purchase anything. Maybe they will reorganize and sell toasters.

It seems to be the general consensus that "nobody shops there because they suck." I would have personally preferred "nobody shops there because they're bastards," but hey, the fact that they suck is karma coming back around to bite them in the ass, right on schedule.

They used to be a good chain. The stories I've seen in the past year or two are very disappointing.
