I Should Write My Posts in Quatrains!

So, how many of my core predictions have come true? Better Cafe menu/service, check. Espresso POD machines within the stores, check. Beer/wine sales in our Cafe? Check, as of two months ago. Seriously, people...I feel like friggin' Nostradamus. I can't wait to see what our Media Centers look like...and the patterns of our new comfy chairs/couches...

I LOVE BN. And I'm pleased they've taken my advice :)

Beer & wine is being tested in one cafe -- Store 2133, New Hartford, NY.

The Espresso Print-On-Demand machines are in three stores -- #2675 (Union Square, NYC), #2597 (Paramus, NJ), and #2782 (Willow Grove, PA). They've been there for well over a year, yet the company has made no move to expand them to further stores.

So these "predictions" Smithback is trumpeting as personal successes, as though he has somehow been whispering in Len Riggio's ear all this time, are nothing more than tests. We test new ideas and practices all the time, and they don't always end up being rolled out to the entire company.

So yes, Smithback, by all means, pat yourself on the back. And then go fuck yourself and get back to work. Those books don't shelve themselves.
