Rent to Own

I went for a walk at lunchtime last week and took a different route than usual. As I passed a small strip mall, I noticed that one of the businesses was an adult video store. The windows were covered with paper so I couldn't look in, but there was a sign above the window that looked something like this:

I can understand a place that rents DVDs and sells them too, but toy rental? That doesn't seem very hygienic. Although I suppose you'd want to test a toy to see if it . . . um, has the desired effect, before spending a lot of money to buy one.

I wonder what the policy is for late returns. And would the reminder to "Be Kind, Rewind" still apply?

Betcha you are right, just the DVDs get rented. At least i would hope so too.

LMAO at your post and the comments. I'm with you, if I can't bleach it or boil it I'm not touchin' it! LOL

Redtail - That must be it, I hope.

Daisy - I'll bet the adult patrons wonder what kinky things they can do with the Lego. The wii is obvious!

Janeen - Eeeewww.

Of course, my canes are used on the bare backsides of all the girls and nobody complains. I'm not sure that's quite what you have in mind, though.

Hi Hermione:
I always did wonder what happened at those toy stores, how do you know if something "fits" or not?
Great Post...we can always use the chuckles!
Take care,
P.S. the Headmaster makes a good do they sterilize all those canes?

Hermione said...

Headmaster - I assume the canes would be wiped down with alcohol if any unfortunate bleeding were to occur.

Andrades Girl - I assume each store has its own exchange policy. Possibly you could in some places but I'm not sure I'd want to have to explain exactly what didn't fit where.
