Buy A Cellphone, Get a Free DVD Player

The older I get, the more I notice patterns in my own behaviour that might be termed as mildly ADD. I have the attention span of a flea, my interests are many, I am always interested in how things work and why things happen, my moods change with the meal I just ate, I'm an impulse buyer who hates malls, I burn food and forget to put the wet laundry in the dryer.
Anyway, I went to Rogers about 6 months ago to rent a movie and came home with a cell phone. The reason I came home with a cellphone was because the sign said 'Buy a Cell, Get A Free DVD Player'. I already had a cell, but I remembered that my daughter had taken her DVD player with her when she moved out. Since then, I hadn't been able to watch LOTR 1 on the DVD I had bought myself. So, I get a new cell phone for X dollars a month for 24 months or something, I get a DVD player, worth about $130, just so I can watch the only DVD that I own at the time, and give my daughter the old cell phone, which she never uses to CALL HER MOTHER!!!! She got the old VCR, too, because her roommate's TV is so old, they can't pick up all the cable channels they pay for. And the cell has a great timer so I don't forget the laundry anymore. That is, when I remember to set the timer feature...And I forgot to rent the movie, so I'll have to go back to Rogers just as soon as those cookies come out of the oven...
