blockbuster

near to where I live there used to be a blockbuster video rental store.

my brother rented a movie and forgot about it

he did not give it a second thought. they had a commercial 
 playing at that time that stated we no longer charge late fees

so he thought he was safe.

then a while later when he returned the video

the store  clerk told him that will be 160 dollar late fee .

he told the clerk that the commercial for blockbuster said you no longer charge late fees

the clerk said that is only at participating locations

this location still charges late fees

so he said I am not paying that and left the store

the debt kept growing . they called sent bills through the mail demanding payment

even sent the debt to a collection agency who hounded him mercilessly and relentlessly over this outstanding debt

a late fee for a video return even after the store closed they still were after him over this debt they wanted to collect

greed taking as much as you can for everything you can .

be careful the world is a dangerous place .

just because you're paranoid doesn't mean that people are not out to get you .

I've been trying to recall the title of this old movie I once watched

A movie I watched many years ago maybe you could help me out in recalling the title.

This old  cantankerous sailor who goes to the society of friends ( Quakers )

as I understand it  they do not have a priest presiding over their sermons . they feel that when the holy spirit moves you to speak . you stand up before the congregation and say what you feel the holy spirit wants you to say .

the main character goes to one of these meetings and stand up and says . the holy spirit tells me to say I am in need of boat . in this you will help me to get one . or something to that effect  . so he is on this boat all rusted out and in dire need of repair. so all alone he starts to work on it .

then a group of I think they were young teenagers show up on his boat. He says to them who are you . they say the society of friends sent us we are your crew .

He says under his breath I am the captain of a boat I am not running some sort of day care here .

I do not recall the title of this movie . I have tried goggling it . the movie takes place in England I believe 

does anyone recall a movie like this? it was on TV about maybe forty years ago ? 

I had wanted to watch it again . because it seemed like a pleasant distraction .

. I recall the tv we had at that time was black and white with a small cathode ray tube screen . what is CRT ( cathode ray tube ) it looks like a large light bulb with a flat end . which was what televisions used to made of . with a large box around it . they were heavy .  an an antenna on the top of it . that is how in the olden days people use to get their entertainment from . there used to be three channels to watch. in the United States any way .       

 thank you for hearing me out on this dilemma

maybe someone here had seen this  on a late night movie program on TV or someplace .

I know not a lot to go on ?

I thought even slim chance of figuring it out was better then giving up .

the story was more about being careful of what you ask for because you just may get it

 and nothing  is ever exactly the way you think it might be . sometimes worse and sometimes better but never exactly what you expect it to be . maybe it is better this way keeps your mind running and gives you reason to keep going ? 

the movie will never be found with that insufficient  information .

I recall it was very funny thinking this guy thought he was taking advantage and geting something he always wanted . only to find it was nothing like what he expected ?

Freud was a real person but this story I do not think it is based on events that are true  to his life but they could have been I guess ?

Yesterday I saw the series finale of How to get away with murder. A fantastic series, one of the best I've ever followed. But glad it ended...at times it became somewhat too complicated to follow. So if your'e ever bored....watch.

Anyone watching something they would recommend?

@Grasshopper if you got around to watching Ares let me know what you thought.
