If I Were Michael Vick...

I can kind of understand Michael Vick's actions right now. Well, no, I can't, but I thought that it would be a good title for a post. Sorry it's been so long since I last posted, but you know how things go sometimes.

So, today's angry letter to the world is about a certain DVD club. Okay, here's the scenario: I joined this "club" with the intention of buying great new DVDs to add to my collection. I was like, "Yeah, I can do that. 2 DVDs in two years. How can I not."

Well, I was very sly at the time and decided to just use the default paper system - you send me a sheet of paper and I check "No I don't want this selection" and send it back to you - so that I wouldn't have to use the online system and thus let that "club" have my credit card number. No, I'm not a Luddite. It's how they get you. If you get sent a movie you don't want and you have your credit card number up there, then by the time you get the movie your card has already been charged. My way is easier because even if Ii forgot to check the box and send the paper then it wouldn't matter, because my card would not have been charged.


So I forgot to check the box several times and have been sent several DVDs over the course of the last six months. Which is okay, because I would promptly return them and not have any sort of flux on my card.

Well, two days ago I receive a movie I don't want and today I check online to see what my status is and, guess what, they've cancelled my account and won't let me do anything but pay for a movie I don't want! Lady Protocol already has the movie anyway!

I'm really pissed, but I guess I'll just have to take my lumps and pay for the damn movie. But at least I can get a little return on it by selling it on Amazon, right?


  1. hey check out and go to their forums. they have a comprehensive list of columbia house deals. with all the codes, movies, and even a list of good, bad, and ugly customer service reps.

  2. Thank you, SpamKlyde, but I think I'm a little too hurt to have anything to do with Columbia House right now. Mayber I'll get out there someday - you know, to see other deals - but for now I just want to eat a pint of Praline Ice Cream
