The Tricky, Tricky Ways of the Web…

A girlfriend of mine sent me the following texts the other night. Names have been changed to protect the innocent.


“Got something for your kid blog, or just for u. I’m texting about it to keep from screaming…”


“Uh oh.”


“Reason number whatever to not let kids play on your stupid I-pad when your 8 yr old KNOWS your password for everything is the same: hunting game, new guns cost REAL money, not fake I-pad money.

Thanks to the risk mgmt dept of our bank, we have identified the perp as [her son], our son, in our living room, starting at 7am!

Almost $300 later now I need a brownie!”


“Oh that sucks!”




“This is funny. You’ll laugh later.”


“I’m sure you are laughing right now. I’m not quite there yet.”

Oh the pricey lessons we learn from the web…

    I feel her pain, my 8yo daughter just spent about $200 on my itunes account with her ipod. :( Live and learn, right?!? I fight the urge to say “How much money have you already spent?” every time she asks for something. I could use that till college, right? That could have been one pimped out American Doll!! :(

    I can feel her pain. I don’t have any credit cards attached to the iTunes account or my Nook account. I have everything with iTunes cards or gift cards. In case my daughter (or family member) purchases something, I don’t have to worry about them breaking the bank.
