Because everything is my fault

I shan't bitch about a particular field of problem, because I know that it would get back to a particular someone, who then would make my life even worse. Because a particular someone is a cry baby who needs to approach problems differently.

So netflix is not only NOT streaming the things I want, but going up in price for online streaming, when they REALLY don't even need too, no matter whatever bullshit jargon  they toss out to defend their actions. Blah blah blah DvD shipping decrease. Blah blah blah equity blah blah blah shut the fuck up. You know, what a pity. They use to be the cool cats. Now they're just the overcooked gravy.

You hear that, Reed Hastings? Overcooked gravy.

p.s. I would just like to mention that the lack of 30 Rock; Season 5 not being available for stream has nothing to do with the above bitching, but is still totally lame nonetheless.

    If you don't normally have dvd's delivered through netflix then simply cancel that portion of the service and the streaming only option will be $7.99 a month. that's 2 dollars less than the currently combined package. Here's the important info they sent to me through electronic mail.

    "Dear Fucktard,

    We are separating unlimited DVDs by mail and unlimited streaming into two separate plans to better reflect the costs of each. Now our members have a choice: a streaming only plan, a DVD only plan, or both.

    Your current $9.99 a month membership for unlimited streaming and unlimited DVDs will be split into 2 distinct plans:

    Plan 1: Unlimited Streaming (no DVDs) for $7.99 a month
    Plan 2: Unlimited DVDs, 1 out at-a-time (no streaming) for $7.99 a month

    Your price for getting both of these plans will be $15.98 a month ($7.99 + $7.99). You don't need to do anything to continue your memberships for both unlimited streaming and unlimited DVDs.

    These prices will start for charges on or after September 1, 2011.

    You can easily change or cancel your unlimited streaming plan, unlimited DVD plan, or both, by going to the Plan Change page in Your Account."

    While I agree regarding your initial problem that a different approach might be the best solution, being a crybaby about a crybaby is fairly off-putting. *Uncontrollable French Kissing*

  2. It is off putting. But I don't like to be threatened, especially where it has to do with my livelihood, and I needed to vent...wait a second...oh n...*Uncontrollable French Kissing*
