Young man, we need to have a serious discusssion

Just not, you know, over the phone...
Ted Estarija was expecting his cell phone bill to be higher this month after adding his Fremont son to his plan, but not by nearly $22,000.

"When I saw my Verizon bill, I was like, 'Wow!'" he said.

The Hayward resident said his monthly bill is normally $93.79. But somehow, over a month's time, his 13-year-old son managed to run up almost $22,000 in data usage charges — $21,917.59 to be exact.
Um, if someone ran up that kind of tab on my cell phone account, I think I'd have something a bit more harsh to say than "Wow!" There would be at least a blasphemy or two.

Oh, and you'll be happy to know that the phone company credited his account for the full amount that his son ran up and that said son is resting comfortably in a coma.
