Bitter Borders Signs Go Viral

Buzzfeed rounded up photographs of homemade signs posted at soon-to-be-closed Borders around the country (including the photo embedded above from ShoottheJ)–earning nearly 17,000 views in a single day.

Check it out at Buzzfeed: “At least it’s justified bitterness manifesting in the form of some awesome passive aggression. Since filing for bankruptcy, Borders Books has been shutting down stores like they’re going out of business style. Not all the employees are taking it well. But when you’ve got nothing to lose, humor and irony reign supreme.”

Last week, we posted a Borders sign that generated 280 comments from readers. Earlier this week, eBookNewser posted a photo of a sarcastic sign outside of another closing Borders.
