You may have heard about the famous K-mart boycott of 1999, in which Boss, having been irreparably harmed by the insensitive personnel at her local K-mart, turned to the only recourse a private citizen has in such a situation--harsh economic sanctions from a single customer. Oh yes, their bottom line would feel her wrath. But then, alas, they had a sale on cutey little shoes and the boycott was temporarily suspended. And it has been temporarily suspended ever since whenever the inconvenience of not shopping at K-mart has outweighed the benefit of nearly putting them into bankruptcy. (You heard about that a while ago? Yeah. Don't mess with Boss.)
There has got to be more that we can do, right? Sue them? No. That would require far too much effort. And preferably a legal case. Malign them? Perhaps. Yes, perhaps.
Not malign, but tattle, we decided. We have started a new blog at YouAreOnMyList.blogspot.com where we can spew forth our consumer grievances in a cleansing act of tattling. We may even vindicate a few we consider to be good guys.
And, because it's so fun, we're opening up the complaining (and occasional admiring) to anyone who would care to participate. If you want to be a contributor to the blog (not just a commenter, but log in and post whatever you want), let either of us know and we'll be glad to add you on. We want you to, so go ahead.
