Business: Rental
'Wash Me' DVD Return Slot   (+4)  [vote for, against]

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.

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, 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.

//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.
