@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...

Fancy, how dare you ruin a perfectly good pun placement?

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??"
