R-Us Watch!

Vigilance Via the Net

Geoffrey's getting a wee bit goofy in his old age. Maybe his advisors are getting senile. Maybe they're on drugs (but do they inhale?) Many of his antics are reminiscent of The 3 Stooges. We love those guys on the screen, but do you want them running your business?

Latest Rumblings

The Salvation Army may be the latest victim of corporate giraffe stupidity. According to erstwhile reader Tom Becker,
``In Ventura, CA, Toys-r-us has banned the Salvation Army bell ringers from collecting funds in front of the Toys-R-Us store. I believe this ban is a nation wide ban.

TRU in a small minded gesture has given $50,000 to Salvation Army to placate the public. This paltry sum hardly makes up for the loss suffered by the Salvation Army since most individual branches collect about $30,000 each!

I suggest this story needs to be promoted and publicized. TRU strikes me as an arrogant, mean-spirited company with no sense of right and wrong.

  1. Most of us aren't quite sure what ``erstwhile'' is, but we always wanted to use that word, and we trust that Tom is one.
