@DromEd: I see now. Next time return your copies of "A Rear and Present Danger" and "Throbin Hood (Prince of Beaves)" on time. XD

@ patch

The guy explained to me that the whole amount of late stuff gets sent to collection. So I got lumped in with people who owed significant amounts. I imagine those were the people who just never returned movies to begin with. Videos were pretty expensive back then.

I used to go to blockbuster to rent video games. I stopped going after they got rid of all their gameboy games to make room for xbox 360 stuff :( (but not before buying a few GBA games for really cheap, one of which I loved when I rented it and it still had my save file on it :D)

@DromEd: Your story is one I've seen before with other places submitting paltry amounts to collection agencies, but wouldn't BB lose money sending it to collections? I mean, I don't know exactly how their deals work, but wouldn't they charge more than $2 for a collection?

I gave up on Blockbuster LONG before they went under.

Short version of story...was a regular customer, everybody knew me. I used the night slot for a return that I didn't realize was late. A while later I get a letter from a collection agency for two dollars. So I went back to the store with two dollars and a pair of scissors, paid them their money and cut up my rental card in front of the manager. Really dude, you couldn't make a phone call to one of your best customers and just let me know I owed you two lousy bucks?

They closed all the Blockbuster's near me. The sad thing is, my parents still don't fully understand that you can watch videos online...

At first I was thinking "Oh good they'll FINALLY remove that dreaded app from my phone that I NEVER USE!". Then I realized, damn you Fancy for getting my hopes up.

I just saw a Blockbuster yesterday. I believe my exact words were, "Blockbuster is still open??"
