Your posts are always my favorite...
I worked at Blockbuster for two years in High School. I had this happen as well... We got plenty of family movies - or simply the wrong movie shoved into the Blockbuster tape cover - but one time we actually got a home-made porno.
The best thing was that the guy came to pick it up. I remember it happening like it was yesterday. I had to call him, and I simply explained that he had given us the wrong tape. He said, "Okay, well I come pick it up and bring you the right one." It was Sling Blade, I still remember.
Anyway, he was a normal looking guy, drove a Volvo. We watched about 3 minutes of it in the back room, it wasn't pretty. It was, in fact, the same guy who picked up the move. I still wonder if he even knew until he got home...
