What do you call 1,000 lawyers on the bottom of the ocean?

I'm averaging 6 DVD rentals a week for $18 a month. That's $0.67 per rental. I can't enter this class action lawsuit.

For $18 a month, I was lucky to get 3 a week. I'd watch and send out next day, and they wouldn't even "receive" them until next week. Then I'd get three more scattered, 2 friday, 1 on monday. Send them back. Repeat. Seriously though, a total slowdown from the free trial (where they actually try to impress you).

Where are you living, Fred? how far away from the DC? I've yet to get totally screwed like that.

1/10% of 1,000,000 lawyers at the bottom of the ocean.

Do you know how to save a drowning lawyer?

That's it! I'm changing my major to pre-law. It's money for nuthin' and chicks for free.

A good start.

What's the difference between a lawyer and a catfish?

I'm living in NH, about a 45 minute drive to the nearest center. I honestly used to get 1 day send back, next day they receive and send out, next day i got it. But after a while they started slowing down to the point where I would send back and wonder if they'd even tell me they received it in the same week.

Blockbuster is a blessing because even though they don't report the return immediately, if you report it returned, they'll ship you the next discs days before they report receiving the old ones.

I'm paying about 75 cents per rental on the 3-out plan $18/month. Overcharging? Not even close.

I've had recent problems with Blockbuster including waiting three days for them to ship me something - even though I have 100 titles in my queue. But when I complained via email, I got this:

Thanks for contacting BLOCKBUSTER Online Customer Care.

I apologize for the delay in the allocation of your movies, Joseph. Due to a temporary glitch, we are not able to ship a DVD to fill your open slot. I have forwarded your concern to our technical department for review. You should see your service resume back to normal very soon.

When I called the 800 number as followup, they rep emailed me over coupons good for free rentals at the store. This is the second time they've done this for me. At least they don't want me completely ticked off at them.

Take the cement shoes off of his feet. Don't understand the question. Why save them?

I was under the impression (since I had canceled my account several months ago) that the "free upgrade" -in my case-from 2 to 3 dvd's at a time - was totally FREE, not so, I was charged for the 2 at a time monthly fee, they were just kind enough to throw in the third dvd for "FREE" as re-payment to me for the Class Action Suit. I fell for it, didn't read the find print and was billed on my chargecard.. Then because I didn't cancel.... I was charged another month. However, I don't recall ever, ever, discussing opening my account up again with the rep. I was merely trying to take advantage of a free trial that was given me as a gift and the Chavez upgrade... BEWARE! They are as sneaky as the bankers!! Welcome to the new American Way! Disgusting!!!

What a RIP OFF... they are GREEDY....

Hostility towards the legal profession is a widespread phenomenon. The legal profession was abolished in Prussia in 1780 and in France in 1789, though both countries eventually realized that their judicial systems could not function efficiently without lawyers. Complaints about too many lawyers were common in both England and the United States in the 1840s Germany in the 1910s, and in Australia, Canada, the United States, and Scotland in the 1980s. In the aftermath of Watergate, legal self-help books became popular among those who wished to solve their legal problems without having to deal with lawyers.
