I am looking for the person out there who can explain to me how we have the technology to put a man on the moon and allow me to “chat” online with a friend who is simultaneously flying on an airplane and yet, no one has come up with a DVD that does not SCRATCH!!!
What’s up with that?
Do the creators and distributors of DVDs not have children?
Do they not know what a child is capable of DOING to a DVD in a nano-second?
Our cabinet is full of DVDs – all which we (or someone we know) spent $15-$20 on and none of them work! And, rarely do I get a movie from our local Redbox or Blockbuster Express that doesn’t have a few skips of its own, too.
Do you know how frustrating it is (and, I’m guessing most of you do) to put in a DVD for your kids, only to have them tell you 10 minutes into it, “Mom! It’s skipping” or “Mommy! It’s not playing!” GRRRR!!!
That is why I am going back to good, ol’ VHS tapes.
Yes, I said it. I’m out of date. I’m out of style. But, I am also out of patience.
Lately, I have been shopping at Goodwill a lot – and you know why? Not because I think they have great deals (to be honest with you, I think Goodwill is too expensive –but that’s a whole other blog post). No, it’s because they sell VHS tapes for FIFTY CENTS!!! I can’t rent a DVD at Redbox for that. AND, I can keep the VHS tape forever and ever. AND, that VHS tape will probably outlive me! Those things are hard to break!
I have found some great VHS movies for the kids – ones we didn’t yet own, such as Toy Story and ones we did, like Annie, which came in DVD form and is thus useless to us now.
A man in front of me in line today at Goodwill looked at the VHS tapes I had in my hand and said, “Do you really still own a VCR?”
“Yes,” I told him. “I do – and I will never, ever get rid of it!”
That is, until someone (is anyone listening out there?) finds a way to make DVDs scratch-proof!
