I returned an empty case to Blockbuster.

And didn't notice until two weeks later.

Beware the danger of the dropbox, people.

Would that make you Idiot of the Fortnight? *snickers*

Sorry. Hope you can talk your way out of the fine. Just make it in their best interest to give in and let you off.

Damn, and I was so SURE I was a lock for that one.

Maybe I'll win for Best Picture (of my fingers in the way).

I've done that. I think the idiots are the ones running the store not noticing for 2 weeks! Mine told me that next day it was an empty carton.

Next part of moron-ness (this part was actually my dad's fault):

The phone connected to HIS account (not mine) is a phone number that we disconnected.

Which is why, when I asked him to rent it with MY account, I used my cell phone.

Who in your home rented the movie and can you find it and return it? Hell, years ago, when I worked at a video store we always looked for the tape in the box before we restocked.

I've returned a movie rented from another video store to Blockbuster before. They called the video store that rented it to me, and the owner called me. He was pretty annoyed, although I never really figured out why, since I went and got it and brought it back to him before it was even late.

I mailed a Net Flicks movie to Blockbuster. Blockbuster returned it to Net Flicks for me. :D Now we just have Blockbuster.

I mailed a Whitney Houston CD to Netflix once. They mailed it back to me. Yep, I'll join you on the idiot chair. :D

My idiot story:

I was working at a lab out of town last month. Somehow a wasp made its way into our little area. It was freaking huge. It was out of season and someone had to chase it out.

So, brave little ole me decided to take the clipboard and shoosh it out the door. I accidentally smacked the bee and it hit the wall and bounced to the floor...BUT what made me the idiot was; I had just come out of the bathroom and I wear scrubs at work. I had forgotten to tie the tie on my pants so when I swung at the bee my pants dropped down around my ankles in a room full of people. Worse yet, they made fun of my underwear :( (Called them my Dr Seuss undies)

Actually, the idiot of the day would have to be the Governor of Illinois who, when accused of wrongdoing, dared the world to tap his phones...

...which had already been tapped by the Feds leading to the said Governor being escorted to jail in handcuffs the following morning. You're nowhere even CLOSE to being that big of an idiot. Trust me.

Sounds like he took lessons from Gary Hart...Bimini, anyone?

That pretty much tops my forgetting to put the garbage out because I thought they didn't run until the next day. They've been picking up on Wednesdays for what, ten years?

I take today's crown. I just web-ordered a special surprise gift for Mrs. Fizzy for Christmas. I'm having it shipped to my work address, but slipped and put the home e-mail address on it. I just got a call from Mrs. Fizzy. She opened the order confirmation e-mail not knowing what was going on and it had a description and a photo of the gift. Surprise shot to hell. I guess Santa is going to have to go shopping again.

There is no word more appropriate for your situation than this one:

"DOH!!!"

Thank you Homer Simpson

The magic word to getting out of the fine is: Netflix. Just say it in a menacing tone of voice until they back down. :D It's like a crucifix to a vampire.


Eh, it's 10 bucks, I can afford 10 bucks.
