Not everyone is cut out to be a businessperson. Some of us would be better off working for an already-established business and having no influence whatsoever on financial decision-making. But human beings are notoriously unaware of our own weaknesses. Which is why you see so many businesses tank themselves due to stunningly inept decisions made by the people in charge. That's capitalism, baby!

1.) From OhTheHueManatee:
I worked for a video store during the time Finding Nemo came out on DVD. The video store I worked for got a huge fishtank put inside. It was so big they had to shrink the game rental section. The tank had clown fish in it. The tank was also locked and we couldn't feed the fish or clean it. This was supposed to be done by someone who I never saw come in.
