I am seriously tired of Blockbuster
Is it just me, or does Blockbuster Video, well, kinda blow?
So I do just that today. I learn: 1) the price has crept up to $4.49 per rental; and b) I owe a $4.49 late fee from June.
Splain this to me, Lucy: I rented a movie in June for $4 for a week. It got returned a day late. The fee is another $4 for the extra 12 hours. WTF?
That's why I think Blockbuster blows. Its penny ante, nickel and dime bulls$%# like that which is just so annoying. They always seem to have their hands in my pocket.
Funny thing is, DVDs are actually a much better experience -- picture-quality wise, alternative endings, out-takes, additional material.
Oh, well, too bad. Video on Demand inches closer every day, and dinosaurs like Blockbuster end up with customers who cannot wait for them to go belly up.
I know I am not the only one waiting to say: Buh-Bye!
