As I was approving comments this morning, I read one from fellow Redbox user Heather that I thought would be good for discussion.
Here is her comment:
Would it be too much to ask that you stop letting your children handle the DVDs you rent from redbox? Every single childrenâ€™s DVD I rent is scratched to bits. I rented one tonight that was completely broken in half. Most of them look like theyâ€™ve been cleaned with steel wool. Any adult movie I rent is fine, but I swear parents must toss the kiddy DVDs back in the car seat for the kids to play with, as if it were a toy out of the happy meal.
I think she has a good point, as I have rented a few DVDs that were scratched up, too. I haven’t had one that wouldn’t play after cleaning yet, but I know it happens.
What has been your experiences with the DVDs? Have you received any DVDs that were unwatchable?
Do you try and handle the DVDs you rent with care? Or… Do you give them to your dog to chew on before returning them? :)
Enquiring Redbox’er Heather wants to know… and so do I.
