Write what you want  
I can't have that "thing" that is known as King_Troll have this community board under hostage any longer. First, don't believe the clues they are giving you about who they are-just remember that disgusting freak who worked with you and lived with their grandmother most of their life(as the idiot who calls himself King_Troll). Remember what the zoo stated, don't feed the "trolls" and they soon go away.

Write away-about anything. Trolls will be deleted and forgotten by all good society.

King Troll is one ugly freak
Let's see just by the writing (and this is years of working at Borders) I can tell it's a dude and one angry dude. I'm just glad all of this is over. For the ones who worked at Borders years ago, remember the cool peeps who wandered with you, and the newbie's they hired, King_Troll, that ruined a great company.

Thanks
While this community may eventually go away as people begin new lives and careers, it shouldn't end because of one person's twisted rants and hostility. He's actually violated several of Live Journal's Abuse policies and has been reported.

It's awesome to know the supposed moderator everyone voted for is nowhere to be found again. Guck, I should have just went for the position myself.

And that is FUCK. Fucking iPhones.

I dunno, I think "guck" is pretty expressive and want to start using that now. Guck those gucking trolls.

Bozo and King_Troll
It makes me ponder how people walk around this world. Here many of you will lose your job and face the world of unemployment; and this jerk comes on here and his rants and not even worth the read. Did anyone get past the first five lines (I didn't) Completely worthless and so happy the person voted to modify this site has done their job.

Does anyone know how much longer the stores have to go?

Just a quick thanks to everyone on this forum for keeping each other up to speed over the past few years. Information was never something that came out of AA.

I agree
One of the reasons I started coming to LJ was for the info. Sad part is that I found out I was losing my job by reading LJ..so I knew hours before my scheduled shift. Actually it made it easier to go in..at least I wasn't blindsided (March 2010).This used to be a place where past and present employees shared info, ideas and generally supported one another. The rants by KingTroll are ridiculous and I don't even read them. My heart goes out to those working the liquidation sale. I miss my job. After all, where else could I get paid to wear jeans and work with books? I remember the Borders of 2003 when I started and the great co-workers I had. We became a little family. So people can rant and rave all they want but I choose to remember the good memories. I truly will miss Borders. Good luck to all of us!

The first (of two) times I was laid off by Borders, I got a heads up from someone on this LJ group. I'm never going to forget that. Thanks, anonymous.

I always wondered whether I should tell you or not, but now, so many years later, I'm glad I did. Thanks for letting me know you appreciated it, and good luck in your future.

I remain always,

I'm going to all my Borders bookstores in my state and taking pictures of the outside and inside of the store. I want to remember this great bookstore. The management sucks but will miss the good times with those who loved books over profit.

People before profits!

What profits?
blackblocpapers on August 19th, 2011 11:04 pm (UTC)
Just don't give my opposite number shit when they remind you of the no-photos policy. Someone (a former employee) did that to me and I was all "DAMN! CORPORATE POLICY, Y'ALL!". And then I realized it was pretty dumb to give him a hard time, but I'd already kicked him out.

So. Just be cool, and ready to give up if the store management hasn't given up yet. They will.

Does anyone have any idea when stores will start closing? I hear September. I can't believe it because there are only two weeks left in August. I'm going to miss knowing Borders as a place I've enjoyed as my place of employment.

PS It's people like that Troll idiot who reminds me just how ugly Borders got in the end.

DC closing
The TN DC is officially closed as of today. Stores should be getting the last shipment this week. With that said I think it should wind up pretty quick. Good luck to all the store employees!

Re: DC closing
All stores are on a 6-10 week window. The smaller stores should close first, sending all left over product to the big stores. We haven't gotten any product for three weeks now and we're still going strong. I would fully expect the big BSS stores to hit the 10 week mark. Which puts everyone @ the end of September. Individual stores will vary within that range, depending on profitability.

Trolls and has beens
To the freak (who has some serious mental issues, did you come from my former store dork?) you will be deleted, you NERD. It amazes me that, yes the internet has done wonders for us to communicate more, but also allows a scared nerd to act like a jerk. People have become hidden trolls and bullies, but don't have the NERVE to say it to someone's face. People are losing their income and their way of life and we have some dork acting like a FOOL.

I LOVE being able to delete that fool. It's such a GREAT feeling (so I guess Ron Marshall was right about GREAT) so FU troll. that means FUCK OFF in your language
