I love movies.
Unfortunately I hate paying for the theater, sitting with 50 other people who are never interested in shutting up, going to the video store, and I really hate returning videos. The video store is never on my way anywhere. I also don’t watch movies repeatedly, so purchasing DVDs is also not anything I’m interested in doing.
Until then, this has resulted in me missing a lot of movies because I just couldn’t be bothered.
But not anymore!!!
On the mall level at work there’s a nifty new machine! (apologies for the not-yet-live website) Use the touch screen to select your movie, swipe your credit card, and voila! DVD spits out, and you’ve got yourself a movie for the night, due back at 12:30 the next day, for only $4.99.
Does it get any better? Oh yes! If you rent on Friday night, the movie’s not due back until Monday at 12:30. And there’s no excuse that the “movie store” isn’t on my way. It’s in the building where I work!
The world never ceases to amaze me in the ways it finds to separate me from my money. And if you’re wondering why I’m not out and about – I’m at home watching movies!
