POETIC JUSTICE OF THE DAY: The corporate parent of the worst company in America, U-HAUL, is now bankrupt, according to the New York Times. In a rare feat, however, the stock of the company is somehow rising, which can only suggest Enron-like shenanigans.
While the article completely omits any mention of U-HAUL's in-the-toilet customer-service record, it does share that the company's CEO, Edward Shoen, took control of the company by ousting his own father, who founded U-HAUL in 1945. What a guy!
It makes sense- U-HAUL's always been morally bankrupt, so it only follows that they're now financially bankrupt.
