Bad Fill

Frustrated with my broker today. I decided to take the EAT trade this morning and received a horrible fill at the opening print. Just horrible.

If anyone has a good broker to recommend please pass them my way. To be honest, I don't really need much in the way of online brokerage services. I would even prefer to just call or email my order in. Pretty much the only type of orders I place are market orders at the open. Anyway, if you have a good broker...let me know either via comments or email at mike@taylortree.com. I'd appreciate your input.

Note: EAT opened late on the NYSE exchange and its very possible the actual opening print was much higher than the $36.52 quoted in the various data providers.
