Did he get it?

u/AidilAfham42 Sep 20 '21

Yes, it was for Rogue Squadron. He was a strict, short tempered dad. For me and my brother to pull that bullshit off was a tremendous achievement.

Lol

Arses must've been kicked when he saw the dial up bills.

Oh with the same bullshit story, I got the new internet cable technology. Many hours on CS, the bill racked up to about $500 USD at that time. I got chewed out for it, but he never found out it was CS, the computer shop guy told him it must be some background internet cache thingy, the guy told him I must be watching porn. That was easier to handle coz he was too embarrassed to confront me about it.

Damn, that computer guy was a hero. I was picturing this.

That's what happens your parents are dicks.

u/wakeupwill Sep 20 '21

Uh, not knowing their parent's financial situation - getting an unexpected $500 bill be pretty harsh, and there would definitely be some 'splainin to do.

u/Lord_Phoenix95 Sep 20 '21

Idk his parents "forgot" him at the house when they went to the airport.

They completely lost him in the airport, you think you'd be able to keep and eye on your children.

u/wakeupwill Sep 20 '21

Oh, you're talking about Kevin. I was thinking about OP's situation.

Kevin's dad can absolutely take that $1000 hit.

u/Lord_Phoenix95 Sep 20 '21

Yeah my bad.

I would lose my shit with my kid if he racked up a $500 bill for pretty much any service if it was unexpected and unnecessary.

u/wakeupwill Sep 20 '21

Gotta be some pretty weird shit for me to be too embarrassed to bring it up with a price tag like that attached.

u/Higgs-Boson-Balloon Sep 20 '21

Even if it is porn, gonna hit him with the heavy guns for a bill like that “oh you’re watching porn now? Your mother and I do all that shit together, really wanna watch it now?”

u/General_Ts0_chicken Sep 20 '21

I caught a break in the 90s because my dad was a sales rep that worked from home, so our internet bill was paid by his employer. Many ours on CS and SC: Brood War, and they replaced his computer every year so I always got the hand me downs!

When I was in high school, my Grandparents had a PC for the sole purpose of my Grandad buying stuff on ebay. He went to live auctions a lot so this was really exciting for him. My uncle, who was maybe 25-26 at the time, stayed there with my Aunt off and on, dude looked at something porn related and racked up the dial up bill and then denied it. I am pretty sure they thought it was me. I remember them showing me a desktop icon of a girl with her mouth open and asking if I knew anything about it.

Fast forward 15 years later, staying at the Aunt's while in town, late night sleeping down stairs by myself, everyone is in bed so I go to look for a DVD to watch and find behind the first row of DVDs... an entire hardcore porn collection....and then it clicked...like when Hank found out about Heisenberg.

u/AidilAfham42 Sep 20 '21

I’m picturing your Hank face while watching porn

u/Zoo_Rats Sep 20 '21

In retro...I should of left a note in the hidden porn stash, cut out magazine letters serial killer style... that read :

"I know what you did in 1995 at your mother in laws, the dial up charges...I am watching you!" .

.....and then deny that I had anything to do with it just to mess with him.

u/DismalBackground1 Sep 20 '21

u/limpymcforskin Sep 20 '21

Had this kinda story happen with a cell phone bill. Who misses the days of 200 texts a month?

u/Igor_J Sep 20 '21

Texts sucked when it was T9 instead of a full keyboard.

Edit: words

u/limpymcforskin Sep 20 '21
