Buying from Netflix

A few weeks ago, I decided to try out Netflix’s used movie store. I ordered Sin City on January 11th, and on January 12th I received an email saying that it had shipped with an estimated arrival date of the 14th. Well, it finally arrived yesterday, February 1st. Instead of taking the expected two days, it took twenty days. That’s just ridiculous. I wonder if it’s typical, or if the post office just screwed up.

Update: It turns out that the disk was scratched. Thankfully, Netflix has a nice interface for reporting problems like this. They sent me a whole new disk and case the day after I reported the problem, and it got to me a couple days later.
