Please take this coupon to your new store to redeem pass." Everything is renting just fine, and boss says we're not closing. Is this as ominous as it sounds?
Here is how you test the theory.... you try to sell a pass periodically. Go into an account, just any random one, type pass... when it pops up that there are no available passes to sell, then you will know. It will not pull up your typical screen, it will just let you know you can't sell it. When that happens, it's just a matter of time.

Funny you should suggest that. That actually started happening a week or so before this. Passes can still be sold by the part number, but not through the pass menu. We were told that it was a computer mistake, and it's being fixed. Yeah, I've pretty much resigned myself to the idea of us not being here in a matter of weeks. Honestly, I think the only real thing I will miss is my free game rentals. I just hope we stay open long enough for me to finish Skyrim, lol. Thanks for the idea though. I'm just going back to pretending our future is secure before I get canned for asking too many questions, hahaha!

Even the Devil, which is the main share holder of blockbuster is saying you guys are making me look bad!

Horse Power is how fast you hit the wall. Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

NaiveDewly...
p.s. In 2-3 more "quarters", as Blockbuster continues to BLEED more $$$ from DISH, they will SURELY either close all of the remaining stores or sell them dirt-cheap to the "next-stupid-bidder"... (7-11?)..
When that happens, are you STILL going to "claim victory"?

lmao what victory douche? I dont own the company..and if I did..then the victory would have been a loss. Your the loser who waits years on a board for a company to close, because they canned your ass for being a shitty employee.

DO not fret tho, when it does happen, ill be here to read all of your celebration posts.
