Netflix sucks. Well, right now it does. The first 5 movies of my queue are all in the dreaded “very long wait” status. Thank you golden statue man, you did not help me. And I had these highly acclaimed movies in my queue before you and before the “Academy” selected or nominated them. I should get some kind of first dibs on this. I called shotgun. Damn you Netflix.
enraged bored enough that I called up Netflix. And what did the guy on the phone tell me?
Netflix rep: There’s no need to get frustrated.
Me: OK how do you suggest I go about seeing the 5 movies that say “very long wait.”
Netflix rep: Well, uh, just do what I do. And remember, I’m not speaking as a Netflix employee when I say this. Put them at the bottom of your queue and you’ll see them in a few months. That’s what I do.
Me: Wow, thank you for that awesome idea.
Well, now I know why the guy said he wasn’t speaking as a Netflix employee. Because that was probably the dumbest thing I have ever heard a customer rep tell me. Put it at the bottom and wait a few months. Really? The vending machine at the grocery store has the movie in stock. And you have 3,203,302,302,583,029,424,590 movies?
