    Jumping ship???

    If you are talking about Steve Liotta leaving, it is because Otis pushed him out. Many store level managers and DMs are being fired or harassed so much they quit. Many have a target on their backs not for job performance, but just because someone at the corp level feels they make to much. Many, many people are discontent as Framingham simultaneously closes stores, cuts payroll budgets and squashes raises and bonuses at the field level, yet remodels the corp. office with a fitness center and other amenities and hands Ron a huge increase. The amount of tension and distrust between Framingham and the DM's and stores is very high. The DM's are finally starting to realize that fewer stores equates to less need for DMs. Some are defending the stores, some are leaning harder than ever, some are just leaving before the #$%$ hits the fan with the OD buyout. Bottom line - Staples treats their employees as mere numbers at best and often not even that well. Otis and Vinnie Servello are major ball busting pricks who show no appreciation.

    Are you referring to the parking lot "Cart Dance" commercial? Yes it is stupid. Just goes to show how out of touch they are and why they should be let go.
