What Would You Do With A $22000 Cellphone Bill?
Needless to say, that's a pretty awful conversation to have, but we're guessing that a father/son tandem in California had a similar discussion after a 13-year old ran up a cellphone bill of nearly $22000. No need to adjust your eyes--we just said $22k. The comical part is that the dad was actually expecting his most recent bill to be somewhat higher after he added his son to the plan, but he was probably thinking between $20 and $30 more, not a new-car-more.
You can probably guess the mistake. The dad added the boy's line to his Verizon Wireless plan, but he didn't pony up for an unlimited data plan. The boy figured out the Internet connection still worked, so he was charged per kilobyte while he surfed away aimlessly, probably looking up goofy high school jokes and the latest from I Can Haz Cheezburger. Thankfully, VZW decided to not actually charge the man for what he owed, and the pop did the right thing by suspending his son's account. We're hearing that the boy is now picking up a side job mowing lawns in order to pay for own account, this time with a proper data plan (just kidding, but it's probable!).
