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.

That's what happens your parents are dicks.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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

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?”

Not to mention 500$ of '90s bucks is like a grand in today's money.
