I have never shared my Netflix account with others. I don’t know how such a thing came to be so popular. I find my television viewing habits very personal. Although, I do widely share them here. I proudly note that Buffy the Vampire Slayer is my favorite television show. I once shared that at a team retreat and people thought I said that to just be difficult. Sure. I truly hate team retreats. In my view, that’s a dirty phrase that should never be uttered in the workplace. I do not understand people who ask for retreats. I don’t do trust falls. I see no reason why I should trust colleagues with catching me when more often than not, colleagues are willing to throw someone under the bus. Plus, I’m a curmudgeon. Enough said on that.
Boy did I go left real fast. Back to Netflix.
I do not get the account sharing phenomenon. I don’t understand the protocols around that. It also wouldn’t end well for me. I forget passwords all the time. I would constantly have to share and re-share new passwords. That would be such a tedious endeavor. On top of which, they would then learn all of my password go-tos. No, I do not need such a hassle.
Here’s another thing. Lately, I’ve been watching a lot of shows revolving around murder. Documentaries galore. So much so, that to many it would appear that I was trying to learn best practices and what leads to epic fails. I do not know why it is, but I have been hungry for documentaries. I am not too sure what void they are filling in my life, but I certainly can sit one episode after another about death row inmates. Regardless of my internal motivation, I won’t be sharing my Netflix account anytime soon. If ever.
