Round 21: Time Warner Cable vs Radioshack

This is Round 21 in our Worst Company in America contest, Time Warner Cable vs Radioshack.

Time Warner Cable: Has been known to employ crackheads (figuratively speaking) as their installation technicians, leading to all sorts of hijinx and complaint letters.

Radio Shack: Won’t let you buy batteries unless you give them your zipcode. Their previous CEO resigned after it was found out that he made up the degrees on his resume. They don’t take cash without getting your home address. They were fined by the FCC for selling TVs without warning consumers of their impending obsolescence. Oh, just give up, Radio Shack, they’ve invented the internet.
