Fun things to do from one's hospital bed: having to chat with Netflix support because some a-hole managed to get into my account (no idea how, the pw was good!) and charge my credit card for the most expensive plan. 😤 They also added their phone number - an Israeli one, making me wonder if it was that "Shira Sade" (apparently an Israeli name) that I've stumbled across a few times. Luckily I saw the notifications before they changed the login information, so it's all canceled. The timing though!

@shirasade I'm so sorry that happened to you! Jeez ... you should be resting not having to deal with net aholes ....

@TheWebRecluse
Seriously, it was so annoying, bc these things you have to deal with immediately. Worse, I had to do it on my phone bc I'd put my laptop away until tomorrow. I don't feel comfortable doing complicated stuff on my tiny screen & I type rather slowly.

@shirasade Yeesh. Being a thief is one thing, but to steal from someone bedridden in a hospital... may this person live in a house with a hundred doors and a hundred windows, as the Yiddish curse goes, and may none but Cossacks visit them.

@lj_writes
That's a great curse! And you've reminded me that I still have to email Netflix to make sure they remove my credit card, just in case the ahole gets back in somehow...

@shirasade My Ashkie friends taught me some great curses 😂 Can Netflix make a recurring charge without storing your credit card info? Or is there an option to, say, pay for a year and make subsequent payments manually? The latter sounds nice actually, it makes renewal a conscious choice instead of mindless inertia.

@lj_writes Theoretically you can use Paypal, but for some reason that didn't work for me. I think you're supposed to get a reminder when your paid-for time expires.
