: : As a note of encouragement for those in a bind over this DVD situation, I checked out my local Blockbuster Video store (thanks for the suggestion, Rich) and they rent DVD players for $14.95 for FIVE evenings. (You have to leave a $150 deposit, cash or credit card, refundable upon return of undamaged player.)
: Well, it tried the rental option a while ago, but I think our Canadian stores aren't up to date..We have BLOCKBUSTER VIDEO but the staff looked more than confused when I asked about DVD player rentals...Oh well...Any other ideas?
Don't feel bad; I have been in Blockbuster 3 times in 5 years and all of those times, the 13 year olds who work the counters...(they sure didn't look much older than that and had about as much knowledge of movies....they are 2 out of 3 for screwing up movie rentals....) so I shudder to even go into there to ask about a rental DVD ...but what do we do for LOTM...(I go to our 3 local independent video stores....but they don't rent DVD player's...)and I live in the SF Bay Area...so it just goes to show you....sometimes it doesn't matter where you live.
