Think your dad is totally cool with you using his Netflix account? THINK AGAIN. One parent came up with a clever way to make sure his kids remember who pays for their ability to binge watch House of Cards on the weekends. And we can’t stop laughing because who DOESN’T have a friend or family member mooching off our Netflix account? (Unless we’re the moochers — hey, no one said multiple accounts on Netflix weren’t fair game!)
This guy’s sign-in screen on the account has a cool avatar labeled “Guy who pays for the account,” followed by three separate log ons for Parasite 1, Parasite 2, and Parasite 3, the moochers who are taking advantage of dear old dad’s Netflix purchase.
Parasite 1 decided to share the image on Reddit this week, and got a ton of comments. It turn’s out his dad isn’t the only one who uses the term Parasite to distinguish who is and isn’t paying for the account. And it also turns out Parasite 1 isn’t the only Netflix parasite.
“I latch onto my brothers account. I am listed as Parasite Brother,” Reddit user Sorrow27 shares. babyeatingdingoes replied, “I too am ‘Parasite 1’ on netflix. But I get the cute raccoon icon which is way better than your 70’s cop dude.” Clearly, it’s a #problem.
