Okay, so we all know that my 300 pound carpet weight is coming back on Tuesday
and there's not a damn thing I can do about that. (I'm going to try talking to Magnolia
, where I bought it, but I'm doing my best to just move from the depression stage into acceptance
I went this weekend to rent a couple of movies down at Mr. Hygiene's video store
where I have the monthly video pass - I can have two movies out at a time for however long I want and I can rent as many movies I want in the month. The pass is good only for that specific location, even though the rental chain is country-wide. Fine. I got a note in the mail a week or so ago (conveniently like a day before they renewed my membership for the month) telling me the price of the monthly pass was going up. I was willing to accept that - it's not a budget-breaker by any means, it's just annoying.
Anyway, I went to rent a couple of movies and it turns out the location I rent at is closing. Today (Monday) is the last day for rentals and they're transferring my membership "automatically" to their sister location a few miles down the road.
That's a problem. The shop we were renting at was just on the edge of convenient as far as location. Moving my account for me to the next closest location a few additional miles down the road doesn't help things. If it weren't for the fact that they don't refund partial months' account fees, I'd go down there and cancel right now. Thing is, I rented two movies for $25 this month and I don't feel that I've gotten my money's worth. I'll probably cancel anyway and just eat the $25.
From a karma standpoint, I must be getting ready for one hell of a second half to this year. This first half has sucked.
