Auto Focus

In honor of Thanksgiving, pre-printed rental agreements and one classic, funny movie.

I had this question posed to me this week:

"What are the pros and cons of express rentals/pre-printed rental agreements vs. traditional at-the-counter experience?"

I have absolutely no clue, so I emailed back that "I have absolutely no clue."

However, I think this video clip of a classic movie might give part of an answer, as well as shed some light on the customer/frontline employee relationship.

Can someone help me with a serious response to the question? Otherwise, enjoy the clip, and Happy Thanksgiving.
