A 13-year-old teen was probably in hot water with his father after running up a cell phone bill of nearly $22,000.

"Probably" is because the kid probably is trying his hardest to enter the witness protection program.

Hey son, I'm going to download my foot to your @ss.

Hmmmm. I wonder what he could have been downloading.

Didn't they do this on Home Alone IX?

"A spokeswoman for Verizon said the company investigates cases with exceptionally large bills."

But only after they get into the tens of thousands of dollars and make the national media.

Well, this genius didn't need to go to college anyway.

I am not going to let my 14 year old stepson read this. His first bill was "only $1,000." (Yes, those were his words). Data usage suspended. No phone calls during school hours except incoming calls from me, his mother and his father (Verizon lets you do this). He got the message. Now if I can figure out a way to get him to stop losing his phone every two months.

*snork* Layzee - we finally had to make the **25** year ols get insurance, because he was wasting his hard earned barista dollars on replacing phones !
Some things they have to learn the hard way ...

Hurriedly exchanges "s" for "d" in above post.

Telecom - tried that. You can only turn in one insurance claim every 12 months. *SIGH*

We saw the same thing, but not that bad, after adding my son to the plan. Didn't take long to shift him to his own account that he paid. Real steep quick learning curve. My daughter has a paygo phone. Run out of time, too bad.

Can you pay me now?
