very random post

Well, I stopped by my local blockbuster video rental store this evening. I knew precisely which sappy movie I wanted to watch today. Looked around and didn’t spot it at first, walked around the store quickly (those who know me know that when I say quick, I do mean quick) circled back to where I thought I saw it the last time and found no copies on the shelf. Went over to the checkout counter and the gentleman helpfully asked, “How can I help you?”

Me: I like your shirt that is nice! Crash was a great movie.
(He was wearing a black t-shirt with rent Crash ***** “A knockout!” written on it. Crash was printed in white, the rest of the words in a kind of seafoam green.
Him: Yeah! It is a wonderful movie.
Me: Could you check for me if someone has returned a copy of ‘Wedding Date’?
Him: Oh yeah I have a copy available right here…
(he walks over to the other checkout counter and retrieves the movie.)
Is there anything else I can help you with?
Me: Well… if I could have your t-shirt...
(I know I shouldn’t have, but it just tumbled out of my mouth! the words kind of hang in the air...)
Do you have some extra shirts?
Him: Well, you do have to work here in order to get one, (he is still standing there while I fumble around for my card which I didn’t find, I could see the wheels turning in his head)
Me: (slightly dejected look ) oooh o.k...
Him: You know what? We do have some extra, you just cant wear it in here.
Me: (Beaming) Really? Wow!
(really beaming now when I realize he just asked me what size i would like omg) Small please.
(He walks over to the back of the store, comes back with the shirt and proceeds to check out the movie by asking for my last name, then asks to confirm my first name)
Thank You!
Him: Would you like a bag?
Me: Yeah sure (damn, why did I say yes? The man just gave you a free t-shirt, why do you need a bag to put the movie and the t-shirt? Well, its too late I already said yes. He puts everything in the bag and I am still beaming like a nonsense.I mentally made a note of his name, and that he was the manager)
You totally made my day, thank you.
Him: You are welcome, you just cant wear it here.
Me: Sure, sure, I wont. Thank you!

(I exit with a huge smile that would probably chase away the gathering clouds; it was just about to rain. That it still hasn't poured as i type this is not lost on this very happy girl)

Yeah Rent Crash ****"Knockout!"

I haven't watched Crash yet!!! I'm about to go down on my creaking knees and beg them to make just one copy for me. Boo hoo. I wish I had eyelashes I could bat!

Freebies are the best!!!!

Ohhh, I am so jealous. I also havent watched Crash - just waiting for it to come out on DVD here.

Oh, those blockbuster dudes can sometimes be cool. I went to my local one on Friday afternoon, I was so hungry and when I got to the counter the dude asked me why I looked miserable and I told him I was starving - he was having tea and bread and butter pudding - my favourite - he just turned around, brought it and we ate it all before he processed my order - and no he didnt flirt with me at all. I was so happy it put a huge smile on my face all day... Oh, and he let me have an extra movie for free...

Enjoy the tee - and the wedding date movie was so funny - coz I fancy me some Dermot Mul?whatshisname...

I am green with envy, Afromusing. There is absolutely no way the surly twit at my local video rental store would give me a smile (let alone a tee shirt:))

Going to watch Crash this weekend. Really looking forward to this.
