The Video Store Girl Changed My Mind

This guest post from Norris Beard

A movie theater? What's that? I forgot what it looked and sounded like. Video rental store? Hah! I haven't stepped foot in one of them for ages. Why would I go to a movie or a video rental store when I can watch movies on demand? I'd rather have the convenience of choosing what movie I want to watch from the comfort of my own home. Saves me gas money, too - yeah, I'm cheap. Do you want to know why I switched to movies on demand on satellite tv from http://www.directstartv.com/directv_equipment/directv_hd/directv_why-hd.html? If so, keep reading. You might be able relate to this.
I walked into a popular video rental store many years ago. To protect the guilty, I won't mention the name of this video store, but I'm sure you can figure it out. Anyway, when I was ready to check-out, the girl behind the counter asked me if I wanted to sign-up for some kind of program where I would get a free movie every once in a while. She was a little more specific than that, but that's all I heard. I told her I wasn't interested because I didn't like attachments. Her response: “Oh, sorry, I didnt know offering a free movie would stress you out.” That irked me, but when she forgot to include my cotton candy on the side with the movies so I could leave, I mentioned it to her. Her response: “Oh, yeah, that was my plan for the weekend, to steal your cotton candy.” I simply replied, “I know,” and knew I would never return again.
