I've discovered Netflix's fatal flaw.

It is postal holidays.

I watched two movies over the weekend. Normally, I would put them in the mail on Monday and I would have two shiny new movies by Wednesday.

This plan didn't work this week because yesterday was a postal holiday. For the Veterans.

Now I won't have any new movies until THURSDAY. What am I supposed to do until then?

Now, I have nothing against veterans. In fact, I like them. But I don't think it's necessarily fair that us Netflix patrons have to suffer in order to celebrate our veterans. Can't I watch a movie AND be a fan of those who served our country?

In fact, what if the movie I want to watch is Saving Private Ryan, but it doesn't come on Veteran's Day because it's a postal holiday. Or Band of Brothers. Or Black Hawk Down.

Or Private Benjamin.

Or what if a veteran wants to watch a movie on Veterans Day? Must we punish them on their own day?

Can't the post office and Netflix find a way around this? I mean, it is for the Veterans, after all.

Clearly, I am the only one thinking of our veterans.
