unlimited my ass

Fuck Netflix. Why does it take 10 days to receive my dvds when the processing plant is in Hartford, 10 miles from where I live? This infuriates me. Either they are pursposely slowing it down because I rent a lot orthey are incompetent. I get six rentals at a time, supposedly unlimited, and because of the slow processing, I have gotten an average of 13 in two months. Whatever. I’m pissed. I am switching to Blockbuster online. They seem to have just as many movies and you get coupons for free rentals in the store. We’ll see. And that’s my new endorsement.
