$10,232

This is the amount that SCREAMED at me when I opened up my cell phone bill today. Alright, I admit it - I talk on the phone a lot. I send a lot of text messages. I use my phone to surf the web. I called Canada a few times. I may have gone over my "anytime" minutes. But $10,232 worth? So then I started wondering, when did I pay my bill last? Don't I have a $400 limit? How could one person rack up a bill of $10k? I've seen Jerry's business phone bill - the one they make calls to really foreign countries on. It's never been even close to that high. So I called up customer service, got the run around for about 1/2 hour (there goes some of my anytime minutes!), two customer service agents and one supervisor later, I finally got it straightened out. They said it was a "clerical error". How do you make a $10k clerical error? Man! I just about had a heart attack when I first saw that number.

That would have given me a heart attack. Ben would dropped dead. LOL. Glad you got it straightened out. :)

Thank goodness it was an error. You can at least laugh at about it now. And yes you should read the Twilight series, I'm still "swooning" but I feel like my life is sooo boring compared to Human Bella and Vampire Edward!?

That is insane! I think they should give you some kind of deal or something on your next bill for screwing up that badly.
