Back in the 90’s, my friend had checked out all these VHS tapes from a video store and didn’t return them for over two years. Then he tried to convince me to take them back for him.
I was skeptical, so he came up with a reason why he would have had them so long. “Tell them I died,” he said. “Yeah, tell them you had to clean out my apartment and you just came across these old videos and wanted to give them back.” I didn’t do it.
