What Value is There?

RECEIVED Sat., Oct. 17, 2020

Dear Alamo Drafthouse,
    Saving Vulcan Video and allowing free rentals is a nice apology gesture, but now I'm banned from my favorite video store that I've supported for years because it moved to South Lamar. Vulcan Video never held a grudge against me because of your discriminative servers who like to bully people with bipolar disorder for walking up and down the hallways in boredom. Vulcan Video treated me like a normal human being, even after your asshole servers booted me from your theater, and now you've just taken that away from me too.
    This gesture that you've just made is nothing more than a publicity stunt and a blatant attempt to buy everyone off after you were called out on social media for fucking over all of your servers and blackmailing them into signing non-disclosure forms by withholding their final paychecks so that you could continue to mistreat them, and my original statement still stands. Tim League is like the school bully who only apologizes when he gets called out in front of the entire world, then turns around and threatens his victims with further punishment if they ever rat on him again. What possible good is a movie theater that values old movies over the value of the proper ethical treatment of their employees? What value is there? None.
