tfw @netflix changes their icons and all of a sudden my cool not looking like an eye patch icon turns into the blue woman with an eye patch icon... when your mother in law wears an eyepatch and you share a netflix account and then it looks like you're mocking her 🙃— 𝔭𝔬𝔰𝔰𝔲𝔪 (@impossumble_) July 28, 2018

Jesse, you really became a member of our family when you gave us all the Netflix password. You have set the bar high for all future in-laws.
Gotta love when my mom changes the Netflix password without telling me and I sit there going through every reason why I was cut off and removed from the family until she responds— Kelsey Kels✌🏼️ (@kram_98) January 18, 2018
