If you type in “Web Parts” and see what autocorrect tries to suggest for you, you get “Wet Farts” way down the list. Well, that’s close enough of a description of the company for me.
Our #2 entry on the “Biggest Job Announcement Busts” series of articles is making a strong move to take over the top spot…
The wheels are falling off the WebParts LLC wagon, folks. When we last left the Web Parts saga, Brad Mainland (the owner and proud recipient of ONE MILLLLLLLION Tobacco Commission Dollars) was down to running whatever the hell he had left of the business out of his house on Main St. with the last 10 employees that he had. SouthsideCentral’s on-the-spot field reporter are now telling us that all the employees except one are gone, and so’s everything in the house. It seems that some moving vans were at the house this week and cleaned the place out. (We’re not sure if the remaining employees were loaded in the moving vans as well, but that would be a better life for them than working for Brad Mainland).
Our reporters have also done some very good detective work and linked Mainland to a newly-incorporated business in Cincinnati, OH called “Sweet River Designs”. They believe that he’s relocated the last employee (the winner of Web Parts Survivor) to that business so that he can sit in Cincinnati and make more websites that will be updated a few times and then fade away into obscurity like everything else that Mainland has touched.
By now, you’re probably wondering if you’ll get a chance to use that Wonderful Internet Cafe that Mainland said would be on the ground floor of the building he bought in downtown, right? Unfortunately for you, you’ll probably have to bring your own bottle of aspirin when you visit downtown because Mainland’s Vending Machine Extravaganza is on a
permanent current hold. Our reporters also noted that in order to get the final part of his Tobacco Commission Jackpot, Mainland had to buy his own building for the company. Hmmmmm.
So what’s in the future for this spiraling disaster? More spiraling disaster, I fear. We’ll keep you posted here.
Editor’s Note: I’d like to think all of the SouthsideCentral reporters that have helped me compile this article. They’ve given me some information on background so if they want to identify themselves, they’re very welcome to do that here.
