No, foundering is the appropriate word to describe the debacle known as Sears Holdings.

Give me back Sears where I can buy appliances and tools and K-mart where I can buy toothpaste. I feel the tools from Sears/K-mart are not the tools of old and the toothpaste is over priced.

I recently purchased a lawn mower from Sears, used it one time, and tried to return it. I made the mistake of buying it before my lawn was even planted but wanted to take advantage of the same as cash option being offered at the time. It was 93 after the purchase date and they said they have a strict 90 day policy for returns. I have friends that took items back to the store after 90 days and my neighbor is a manager at Sears. Anyway, now I have a lawn mower I don't want and I will never go to Sears for anything again....

I can understand reasons for not shopping somewhere but.........They gave you 90 days and you waited 93. Now you're upset because you didn't follow policy. Uh, who's fault is that?

Usage Note: The verbs founder and flounder are often confused. Founder comes from a Latin word meaning "bottom" (as in foundation) and originally referred to knocking enemies down; it is now also used to mean "to fail utterly, collapse." Flounder means "to move clumsily, thrash about," and hence "to proceed in confusion." If John is foundering in Chemistry 1, he had better drop the course; if he is floundering, he may yet pull through
