Radio Shack – A wire company in a wireless world
You know what makes me sick? You know what makes me so mad I just wanna build a time machine and go back 40 years to pick something up at the Western Auto Store?
Yeah – I think y’all heard by now… the Radio Shack has turned toes up… bought the farm… and went over the rainbow to see Dorothy and Toto. They went bankrupt.
For the life of me… I do not understand how a store that sells accessories for electronic gizmos and doo-dads… could go bankrupt in the time of electronic gizmos and doo-dads.
This is like McDonald’s struggling in the time of fat people. What the hell!! There is obviously something afoot that the common mind cannot comprehend.
Yeah – I heard where half of your Radio Shacks is getting turned into Sprint stores. And the other half are being turned into empty spaces in the strip mall next to where the Blockbuster used to be.
You know who I blame for this? Your wi-fi communications. Yeah – everything today is going wireless. They got wireless phones… wireless printers… wireless computers… wireless communications. And what did Radio Shack sell more than anybody else on the planet? Wire.
I mean – think about this. You ever tried to hook up anything over the past 50 years… and you didn’t have the right wire – where did you go? Radio Shack. Fact is – they could have called it ‘The Wire Shack’. You needed a cable – they had it. You needed a wire to run out to your antenna – they had it. Big wires… little wires… all shapes and sizes. If you needed a connection – you HAD a connection – at the Radio Shack. Except today – nothing is connected. It’s wireless.
Wake up, America!!! You mark my words… someday your ham radio is coming back. And you won’t be able to hook yours up. And I don’t know where we’re gonna get phone batteries. I’m Earl Pitts, American. Watch my YouTube Channel. And Pitts Off.
