What if I go in at 9:59 because my High School Musical was too scratched to watch and *SIGH* I had to get another copy? Am I on a list now?
Yes, NAMBLA's.

Why would Marlon Brando Lookalikes care?

Winner.

It's pronounced "WINNAR".

As someone who has worked at Blockbuster in the past, trust me when i say that a grown man renting High School Musical will not even be in the top 10 creepiest thing to go on in the place over the course of a day.

Go on...
I, for one, would like to hear the rest of this list.

Oh man, let's see. There's...

The lady who waits outside for the store to open, and is there before the staff is, to rent her favorite Richard Gere movie for the 150th time.
The man/woman who curses you out in front of their kids because they were charged a late fee on a movie that was almost a month late.
The old guy who rents 2 musicals and a softcore porn video.
The reverse of the above guy.
The woman who asks if Grand Theft Auto is appropriate for her 7-year old.
The guy who takes almost sexual joy in shoving a newspaper ad in front of your face to prove that walmart has the latest release for $.50 cheaper, making you honor the price because there is some fine print on the counter that says we will.
The old woman who tried to return VHS tapes she purchased in 1989 without a receipt. (The manager says to just do it to keep from having to do the paperwork when she bitches to corporate)
The old dude who asks for help from your female coworker in selecting his softcore porn.

...and so on and so on. There are more, but those are all based on actual experience.

Years ago back when the interweb was young and still powered by dinosaur-powered servers, I remember reading someone's blog about working in an adult video store. As creepy as Thrash's list was, her stories were worse. I can't recall the website url though. (It looks like there's a likely suspect, but the blog got turned into a book and is no longer on the web.)

That had to be a joke.  Blockbuster's the one who cuts the R rated stuff out of R rated movies.  They don't stock softcore.   ;)

Oh, they certainly do...or did when I was working there in '03/'04. That guy definitely existed...in a few incarnations.

Well, since a lot of people still think of Blockbuster as I did....shows that part of their problem was bad promotion.

That reminds me of a woman who came in a few months ago and returned a VHS copy of The Blair Witch Project to the store I work at. I barely remember the last time we sold any pre-recorded VHS tapes.

Did you charge her 3,000 dollars in late fees?

Not quite. I don't work at a movie rental place, I work in retail. Apparently she never got around to opening it, so they reluctantly accepted it and gave her like five bucks back.
