I just got the most threatening, rude phonecall from the movie place
I have a late film... yes, totally my fault. But I don't need someone to call me with attitude about it. Then start threatening collection action.
Wow, I think I'm going to cancel my membership and write a letter.

7. I don't mind telling the credit card people that, either.
they're not supposed to call at all, my lawyer sent them a letter that I'm judgment proof because of my disability - but they call anyway

2. Perhaps the employee didn't know what to do.
Maybe no one has ever returned a movie late, before. :eyes:
Bastards.

10. Was it Blockbuster?
We used to rent movies from them, and one time they started calling about a movie we supposedly had not returned. I had returned it and told them so, but they kept calling. So, one day when I was in the area, I went in and SHOWED them the movie on the shelf. It was an old movie, and they only had one copy of it. Needless to say, they did not bother us any more, and we also dropped our membership and wrote a letter to the headquarters (who sent us coupons for free movie rentals, which we round-filed).
