Early yesterday morning, I was headed home from a long productive day at the shop. Though I had left the shop for a few minutes and went to pick out a Mothers Day gift I didn’t get a card because of Hallmark being extraordinarily busy. So I decided to pick of a Mothers Day card on my way home. It being about 1am the only place open was a Wal-Mart. On my way out I noticed the Red Box movie rental machine standing there calling to me. I walked up touch the screen and was presented with dozens of movies I could rent. I looked through for a few minutes and finally rested on Sex Drive. I added it to my “cart” and told the machine I was ready to “check out”. The machine then asked me to swipe my card, enter my zip code for verification and my email address. Then with a “Thank You” I was presented my movie. The whole transaction took about 1 minute.
When I arived at home, I found an email from that Red Box informing me of my rental time, location, selection, and total charge for today. Total charge for renting the movie was $1.09 and I have untill today at 9pm to return it. This whole experience has been almost too simple. I might start renting too many movies.
