Outrage towards the online rental giant continues as a Denver area man recently took extreme measures to pay for the upcoming price hike. When Roger Bobblecock heard that his current plan of one DVD out and unlimited streaming was being split and charged separately, the middle manager and father of three knew the situation had become dire. Roger's wife joked that they were going to have to turn tricks downtown to pay the increase, but it was no laughing matter when she actually had to bail him out of jail after being arrested for soliciting himself.

When asked why he felt the need for such drastic debauchery, Bobblecock immediately pointed the finger at Netflix. "Desperate times call for desperate measures," an exasperated Roger stated. "Besides, when we watch the DVD of Sucker Punch upstairs.......my youngest needs to be able to stream Veggie Tales downstairs in the playroom......I need both of those rental plans for effective family viewing." The Bobblecock family also feel that 12000 streaming titles on the service just aren't enough and they need the security that the additional DVD gives them. "I'm not giving up my latte and I was simply looking after the well being of my family......how else was I supposed to come up with the extra eight bucks?," Mr. Bobblecock rationalized.

With today's struggling economy, it's hard times for folks in need of entertainment and Netflix seems to be unwavering about the price increase. In the days ahead, let's hope the Bobblecock's and other impoverished families will not have to resort to criminal behavior to get their movie fix.
