Flixsappointment

You start longing looking at the Netflix DVD around 12 noon. You tell yourself it's only going to be a few more hours. Lunch, getting down for naps, a couple loads of laundry and some dinner prep. It all gets done, you sit down with a diet coke and the last piece of apple pie that your rockin' SIL sent down with her DH a few days ago. Mr. Quimby puts the DVD in, you prop up your feet, snuggle into Mr. Q., and hit play.

Bliss.

"This disk cannot be played." Mr. Q looks and sees that there is literally a small hunk of the DVD missing.

Get it? It's a play on disappointment ?

I love the word :) We have flixappointment around here when we are about an hour into a movie and it sticks. And sticks. And eventually stops trying. Good movies I make them send me a replacement, bad movies I look up on Wikipedia and just read how they end. ;) I really think I need to learn how to clean DVDs since that's probably our problem.

Hope your replacement arrives soon! And that you can watch online in the meantime ;)

or "netf**ks" ....get it, instead of "Netflicks" - they send you the dvd you've been waiting for and then they f*** you over with a reject disk!
tag: i think I'm funnier
