Best of 2004
I worked at a video store in 2004. The most difficult part of the job was deciding what movies to play during your shift. The movies we threw on had to be non-offensive, enjoyable, and also not good. If we popped in a movie that everybody loved, they would just ask to rent it. Keep in mind that this was before streaming services. If a customer saw Ghostbusters playing at the video store, unless they owned it, chances are it has been a while since they've seen it last. They would ask me if we had any more copies. I would say "I guess I can give you the copy from the VCR". And then the rest of my shift would be ruined because I really wanted to hear Peter Venkman say "Let's show this prehistoric bitch how we do things downtown!". This led me to enjoy some weird movies. If I played Fishing With John during my shift, nobody would ask to rent it, and I would have a great shift watching that terrific show. What was even cooler than watching Fishing With John at work was being able to buy video games when my shift was over.
