I'm the proud owner of a crappy movie

I rented a movie from a large corporation a week and a half ago.  I know it was due on Wednesday, but I decided to keep it for a few more days, due to no late charges.  Apparently, they called my house on Friday demanding that I return it or they would charge me for the movie, and I would, in essence, have purchased it.  So, I called them and talked to a nice girl who said she would just renew it for me, and then I can have it until Friday.  I thought everything was good until today, when they called and left another message explaining that they have now had to charge it to my credit card, because I didn't return it in a timely manner.

This seems really shady and thugish to me, nevermind that it was supposed to be renewed.  I wasn't aware that companies could just up and force you to buy the product.  The library that I work at never does that, unless you lose the books.

EDIT: For clarification, my friend was charged this same way last month.  However, he had the movie for a month and a half to two months.  I didn't think they'd charge me that quickly.  Maybe it's my fault for not learning from his mistake?
