Growl [Aug. 9th, 2005|06:27 am]
[Current Mood |irritatedirritated]

I usually try to avoid bitching in my journal, but this morning I can't help it. I have one simple question:

Why are the members of my family fundamentally opposed to putting the DVDs back into their damned cases and back onto the damned shelves?

I spent a good portion of my precious morning hour-to-myself sorting through stacks of stray DVDs and empty cases, trying to match everything back together. As it is, most of two seasons of South Park are missing, and I have the disk for Red Dwarf VI but no case. I have made specific requests that this be done, which have been pooh-poohed as an overly anal-retentive streak on my part.

We paid good money for these things. Why is it not worth the extra 6 seconds to make certain that they can be located and still work te next time you want to view them?

This is a huge pet peeve of mine, and a battle I fear I will never win. But, damn, it frustrates the hell out of me.

The same policy applies in my house. I've explained numerous times that DVDs are not disposable and that we don't watch them once and then recycle them into coasters. Two out of the three Jurassic Park films are not working properly... these are my son's favorite movies of all time. He suggest I buy him new copies. I suggested that he should not suggest that anymore...
