If ever there was an instance where you should read the small print in a contract – THIS IS IT!
Teeny bopper Jack Featherston one night decided to download two movies which were ‘Dumb and Dumber’ and ‘Freddy Got Fingered’ and before you know it – he gets a bill for $573 in the mail!
$573 for 2 dumbass movies?? I wouldn’t even pay $50 for a Megan Fox porn! Umm come to think of it …
And since little Jack is a teeny bopper who of course has no cash on him, his mum, Michele Collins is now the proud and happy chappy owner of 2 of the dumbest movies ever.
Congratulations mum! We’re sure you’re extremely pleased with the purchase … We’re sure you were just glowing when you first set your eyes on the $573 bill for 2 stupid-ass movies – and we’re also sure that you whopped Jack’s butt the minute you received the bill at the same time shouting WTF Jack??
So how the heck did Jack end up with the $573 bill for two movies? He downloaded the movies over 3′s mobile internet using his $29 monthly plan. His plan consisted of 3.5GB of included downloads, with an excess fee of 10c per MB. But with just one movie at more than 4GB already because of it’s high-definition nature – Jack definitely well and truly exceeded his limit.
3′s mobile staff we’re probably laughing and thinking to themselves “this ‘dumb’ kid just got ‘fingered’!”
Michelle said that nobody read the 3 contract’s small print – which was not really the brightest of ideas.
“Jack came up with scenarios how to pay it off himself with his part-time job and selling his guitar, but I told him I would pay it this time,” Mrs Collins said. “These are two of the stupidest movies and they have cost me a fortune,’ she added.
Two of the stupidest movies are right, but come on mum – what counts in life is not the mistakes you make, but the EXPERIENCE.
Okay, I just blew some crap out of my butt just then. I’m sure that if Mrs Collins was right in front of me she would have whooped my puny ass too! Well this just goes to show that you should always read the small print in any contract. Paying $573 for two dumb movies is not something you want to happen to you again.
Not unless it’s two scandalous videos implicating Megan Fox and Jessica Alba together. Hmmm …
