The Break-up

Dear Blockbuster,

It has come to the time that you and I must part ways. It has been a fun ride but you, my friend are of no use to me anymore.

I have given you countless opportunities to get your act together and start treating me better in this relationship. I continue to give you my undying devotion and in return all I asked is for you to carry more indie and foreign films. But instead of doing that one thing for me, you go and take away one of my membership features. I can no longer get films from the store and also have my movies mailed out to me. When I called you to ask what gives? you scuffed at me. I asked if I would be given a discount? and you said no. So essentially you took away a service and yet I must continue to give you the same amount of money with no sort of compensation.

Well Blockbuster. I give up. I will no longer continue on this one sided relationship. I will take my money and call up Netflix, we once had a great relationship and I am sure he will be willing to pick up where we left off.

Good-bye and good riddance.

Ciao!! xoxo

I haven't had a problem with Netflix. Go for the 3-a-month. It's only about $18 a month. (with tax and all that extra little stuff)

Plus they have a lot of instant play, and a really really really good selection of indie and foreign films.

I love Netflix. :)
