Netflix cheated. I know, how could we? 46% of global streamers cheat, we can't help it. It's just so hard to press pause!
Husband vs Wife
We finally get to lay down in bed after a long day, both looking forward to a show we have been wanting to binge watch together for a while like The OA, Narcos or Stranger Things. We get through an episode or two and enjoy them but then it happens, one of us falls asleep (namely me) and the other left awake (namely hubby) will be so into the show that several episodes go on before he realizes he just Netflix cheated.
Sometimes it's done deliberately and I have zero shame in admitting it! I threaten to cheat when hubby doesn't feel like watching one of our shows and I do...well let me just get my iPad and headphones out while you enjoy that movie instead...
Of course, our rule is if you cheat, you rewatch with the one who missed out the first round.
Sibling vs Sibling
My kids like watching shows together but have different bedtimes. On occasion my oldest will go ahead and watch a show without her brother only resulting in him being upset that he cheated and went on watching without her, he too wanted to see what happens next!
Parents vs the kids
We will watch a movie or a show together on Friday night. Well, these movies or shows sometimes need to be screened and who better to do that than mom and dad! Yes, there are ratings but you never know right? That's our story and we're sticking to it! Screening is not necessarily cheating when you are protecting your young! :-P
We love sharing time together getting in great entertainment from Netflix. I am happy though that there is enough variety, all of us can pick something to binge solo and not have the cheating guilt.
