'Wash Me' DVD Return Slot

A separate slot to deposit DVD rentals into that would indicate to the store that there was some problems with the DVD either due to smudges or scratches.

I am guessing the author would fishbone this idea... [dbsousa, Oct 04 2004]

       From the "True Porn Clerk Stories" link: //A lot of porn movies do ape titles - "David Cop-a-Feel" was my all-time favorite - but not as many as you'd think.// We know what you've been watching, blissmiss.

       Hey! This is a really good idea! How'd it slip under my radar?

       Worldgineer - i keep hearing about "Sperms of Endearment" and "Shaving Ryan's Privates", are these real?

       Reminds me of www.actsofgord.com, though that's a video-game store.

       If you take the DVD into the store, and complain about the dirt (or scratches), you should get a free rental.   

       My local Bloccy B's does this...

       Great idea !   

       I usually check the DVD as I'm renting just to verify it looks playable. If not, I ask for another. Nothing worse than getting 3/4 through a movie (after the vid store is closed) and not being able to see the ending.   

       BRAVO !

       //Nothing worse than getting 3/4 through a movie//
What about getting 7/8 through a movie and being able to see the ending?

       sousa, Thanks for finding that link so I could waste 4 hours of work today.

       I'm sure if you stuck a note inside the DVD case, it would catch their attention.   

       Netflix sleeves have a "DVD is unplayable" checkbox on them.
