Couples Using Netflix

Okay, this is odd but i'm just going to put it out there. The question was asked today at work whether we knew of any folks who had experienced the following: a couple gets a DVD that they really want to watch together, but for one reason or another, one of the pair breaks the commitment and watches alone, perhaps with some lame excuse as to why.
Has anyone done this or had it done to them? What was the lamest excuse?

This, by the way, happens to me all the time. My wife regularly falls asleep 5 minutes into our movies and i tend to watch the rest of the movie and send it back. (She doesn't really like movies anyway). Anyone else got a story?

POST SCRIPT JULY 1:
Turns out this question was floating around the office because the Washington Post had called and asked someone here. And today an article appeared in the Washington Post that addresses the question. I think the stories they found were better than my own. Read it here.
