Heads Up, Netflix Is Screwing Everyone Over And Ruining Our Lives

Netlflix has been a godsend for years. It’s relatively cheap, it’s easy to use, and it provides a proper alternatives for nights when you don’t feel like getting drunk and hitting the bars. It’s the perfect situation.

That is, it was the perfect situation, until CEO Reed Hastings dropped an atomic bomb on us and decided to jack up the prices. As of now, users pay around $7.99. He didn’t specify how much higher the price will go, but if it hits double digits, I’m calling it quits and leaving the planet.

I know what you’re thinking. You probably think this news doesn’t apply to you because you mooch off your boyfriend/parent/sibling’s account. So what do you care if the price increases? Well, friend, that’s a whole different shit storm.

Netflix has also decided to crack down on customers sharing passwords. That’s right. Soon you’re going to have to become a self-sufficient and start paying for you own subscription like a goddamn adult.

This is bullshit. I don’t want the price to go up, and I definitely don’t want to have to pay for my own account. I’m running into enough problems as of the moment, because I hacked my friend’s account without telling her, and she keeps asking why “Russia’s Toughest Prisons” is on her recently watched queue. And I’m just like, “Idk, that’s sooooo weird…”

What’s the deal, Netflix? Why you gotta kill our buzz like this? Don’t you care about struggling college kids trying to save a few bucks and binge on OITNB? You seem to be forgetting that this service is keeping us off the streets. Doesn’t that mean anything to you people? Consider this my strongly worded letter of protest, and remember that I am not afraid to mail a bag of shit to the ‘flix headquarters if need be.
