Former Borders Bookstore Employees Let Loose on Former Borders Customers

Workers of the now defunct Border’s bookstore chain reportedly created this poster-sized list of gripes and revelations. A few of our favorites:

  • We always knew when you were intently reading Better Homes and Gardens, it was really a hidden Playboy.
  • It confused us when we were asked where the non-fiction section is.
  • Most of the time when you returned books you read them already — and we were onto you.
  • We were never a daycare. Letting your children run free and destroy our section destroyed a piece of our souls.
