R.a.n.t. of week 01/25/15
There we are! The point of this r.a.n.t. When things borrowed are never returned. For me, it's primarily videos or CD's. I always do this. lend someone a video and forget about it. Then when I'm looking for it, can't find it. By then, I've forgotten who I've lent it to. I have to admit, I've borrowed a set of DVD's from a friend before and forgotten about them. About a year ago I borrowed a humorous set of DVD's and when getting home sat them down on my desk to watch later. About four months later the DVD's were still sitting, waiting to be watched. It bothered me so much, I actually pencilled in a time to watch them so I could return them. Once I finished watching them, they sat another few months because I would always forget to grab them when I went by the friends house. So the next question I have. But I never forgot who I borrowed them from. And I did return them. When I gave them back, I was told, "I forgot about those. I would have wondered where they went if I had wanted to watch them." So, what are your thoughts on having a sign-out sheet for things you lend people?
Recently, I've started cataloguing all my CD's. Because I have so many, it would be easy to lose track of them if I were to ever lend them out. I'm about ready to do this with my videos. At any given time, I've got several things out with various friends. Up to a few months ago in just my Doctor Who collection I had several out with different friends. As most people know, I'm very partial to my Dr. Who collection so losing track of who had what was not a possibility. I'm happy to report, my Doctor Who collection is once again complete. But I have noticed other DVD sets missing. I know I've lent them out, but to who? To be honest, I don't recall. The Office, 30 Rock, Survivor, Doctor Who; just a few of the items I've lent out most often. Some, are still missing and I'd like to get them back at some point. Perhaps I should require people to sign up for a Jeffrey Scott Video membership card. I won't ask you to rewind, and I won't charge late fees. Wow! what a difference!
Enjoy a few nostalgic Blockbuster Video Commercials.
