Netflix might be looking for me, how the roles turned out
The other day I went to the attic and pulled out all the DVDs we had, and I made a haunting discovery.
My kids were looking for a fun movie to watch, and watching them search on Netflix, then Amazon, then HBO Max, I realized that I was apparently spending a lot of money on streaming sites, but I also decided to stop this endless search. I went up to the attic and pulled out all of our DVDs. I have literally hundreds of DVDs and box sets that I have collected over the years.
I happen to have a lot of comedy movies so I thought I would have something that would make the kids happy. As we start to go through all of the movies, I came across something that made me feel a little bad. I found a DVD that I rented from Netflix a very long time ago and never came back. Do I have late fees?
Netflix still sends DVDs to people every year, so I guess I should flip the movie. Do I still get credit for the return if I do? I found the address of Netflix, so I guess I’ll send this movie back to them. Hopefully they find it funny and don’t get completely weird about it. I’ve had the same Netflix account since around 2005 or 2006 so if that was a problem I’m surprised I didn’t hear anything.
So what was the movie? The 2008 film Righteous Kill starring Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino. Decent movie, but apparently I thought it was amazing enough to hang on to for all these years. Guess I rented it the same year it came out, so I’ve had it for quite a while I would say.
I hope I don’t end up in Netflix jail. Maybe we can even call him since I’ve paid you way more money than I should every month for all these years? What are you saying?
