The Netflix oops!

Last Friday night we got out of control crazy and watched a Netflix movie. Saturday morning, I was cleaning up and patted the Netflix mailing sleeve and felt a DVD inside. Thinking the hubs was super on top of things, I slid it into the mailing envelope and sent it back to the magical world of Netflix on my way to take Aidan to TKD.

I knew something was wrong when I came back from my daily Starbucks visit later that afternoon. Aidan and daddy were waiting for me on the front porch.

Guess what was not in the mailing sleeve I sent back to Netflix? Our Friday night movie. Instead, Aidan’s favorite XBox game Forza Horizon 2.

Rahul put the XBox game in mailing sleeve to keep it safe while we put our movie in to watch. Oops.

I immediately went online to see how to get back a personal DVD from Netflix. Imagine my surprise when there was not a choice to click “I accidentally sent my kid’s XBox game instead of our movie rental.” This meant I had to call Netflix. The call center guy laughed out loud when I explained what had happened and said “wow, I bet you are not very popular right now.” Sigh. He then shared there was a 50/50 chance we would get our DVD back. When DVDs are returned, they are scanned to see if they match the weight of the DVD rented. This is the only way to flag a return. Ugh. In my mind, an XBox game and movie would be a similar weight. I decided to keep this info to myself. No need to panic, right?

Then, this email. Whew.

Really Netflix… Houston, we have a problem? But who cares. Our personal DVD was coming home.

And it arrived today!


I am not sure who was happier… race car obsessed Aidan or me.  So, all is well in the XBox world on Wild Azalea Lane. And Rahul…. DON’T put XBox games in the Netflix sleeves… ever again!
