OMG I just flirted outrageously with Blockbuster Guy. Yeah...ok......bugger it, it was on the phone but I did have a plan... Young number one son is home from school sick and whinginess had struck by noon (though his illness had improved remarkably). He got it in his head that he HAD to watch 'Back to the Future II'. I thought I'd ring around first to save disappointment at the actual store so I called our local Blockbuster. Blockbuster Guy answered...he's got a really nice voice - and now I know his name. We had quite a discussion about whether he had the DVD or not and he went to a lot of trouble to run around the store and see if it was on one of the shelves for sale etc. I was so incredibly witty and flirty I don't know how he could possibly NOT be like...totally in love with me.
He advised there were no copies in store but I thought I would drag my 'sick' child down there anyway so he could pick something else, and I could casually mention to Blockbuster Guy that I was in fact the highly impressive and intelligent person he had just spoken to. But, Bratboy had other plans. My lovely little man stormed around in a mood and couldn't possibly find ANYTHING else that was anywhere near as good as Michael J Fox and a DeLorean so we had to leave immediately and go to another video store. However, it wasn't a total loss, as while I was there Blockbuster Guy did come out of his office and worship me from afar....for quite some time....*sigh*
