The Postman Always Sees 'Em First
But have you ever had a movie just go missing and then, 3 maybe 4 days later, suddenly disappear from your rental list as if it had been returned. What about the movie that shows up late in a torn package. You say to yourself, "Well, they ship hundreds of thousands of these things per day. The USPS is bound to screw a few up." Right?
WRONG!!!! Read this from New York Magazine, A Stranger In Your Queue
How can you afford Hagan Daaz Chocolate Moose Tracks Ice cream with that attitude?
Hey guys, what's up with the duel? Did y'all *chicken* out? K, I left a suggestion in your mail.
You get comments from Patricia aka Blondesense???!
Now Im really impressed!
Lily, I hear ya, but when you're waiting for a particular movie, and you know it's been shipped because Netflix told you so...you get a little pissed off when it never comes and shows up back at Netflix 5 days later. This actually happened to the frogette and I. We reported a movie "lost in the mail" and were sort of embarassed when it got back to the Netflix depot a few days later.
Course, our postal carrier is an idiot. He delivers whole bundes of mail to the wrong building.
I bet the postman (postperson?) was pissed when they found a documentary of 'The Hunting of the President'! Heh.
yeah, I'm just that boring
Stacy, this is what you rent from Netflix! OK, it's time for an intervention.
MS. CAFE POLITICO...STEP AWAY FROM THE KEYBOARD! YOU WILL NOT BE HARMED.
- great flick....we should send popcorn...
By the way, I mention Netflix today in my first ever homework assignment for bloggers today. Have a gander:
Up until you have "too many" go missing, then they suspend you. At least, that's what their web-site says.
Also, I got a few busted ones and was like 3/4 of the way through a movie and it stopped. It's not like you can run it back to the store! The longer they are in business, the older and more shitty the condition of the DVDs...
My friend got one cracked in 2. They don't even put them in protective wrapping!
Anyway, that's my two cents.
