Trying to cure my addition to Blockbuster Video

hi, my name is dfly and I'm addicted to blockbuster video. So here's my story. Since I started working in radio, I have been using blockbuster for various reasons.

I even get blockbuster online...love the delivery to the mailbox and the free in-store rental per week.

WELL...I actually had to get a Hollywood Video rental card. Now mind you I wasn't forced, but usually what I do is order videos for me and my mom and I get 'em, watch 'em and send 'em to the rents. So my mom is hooked on six feet under, I have never seen it...why not so sure..but I haven't. So I order her season 5 on Blockbuster and disk one says long wait, disc two and the remaining are either short wait or available. WELL....last Saturday, disc two showed up in the mailbox. Now what to do, what to do.

I call Blockbuster stores no Season Five, I call Hollywood...yep they've got it. So on my way up to the "rents" on Sunday, I stop at the local Hollywood Video store. I walk up to the counter and say to the clerk....I need to sign up for a membership, but only if you have Six Feet Under Season Five Disc One. He looks at me...checks his computer, yep we've got it. He asks me to fill out the application and goes to get the disc for me.

He brings me the disc. Another clerk has come up front. They start giving me a bad time about "Oh you must be a Blockbuster customer" and "They don't carry this in their stores" blah blah blah. I just reply...

"A girl's gotta have options"
*snort*

So the two clerks just start randomly quoting lines from a movie. The other customers are looking at them very strangely. I try not to bust out laughing. I am just crackin up...the are quoting lines from "Clerks" they are doing Dante and Russell lines....so out of nowhere as I am paying for my disc I say...

"I'm not even supposed to be here today"
they just stopped, stared at me....said "kewl" she does get it...

Ha ha...

SO I must say my first experience at Hollywood Video was very funny and well worth the $1.99 rental for my mom.

tee hee
