Calling too many "900" numbers can do that to you.

But it wasn't that at all... he was using it as a modem for his computer.

The point Tie is trying to make is that getting virtual, non-coitus sex through means that require a monetary charge is a rather bad idea, on pretty much all counts. You're still a lonely jerk, you didn't get any physical action out of the deal, and you pay money without receiving any sort of tangible return, not even a consolation-prize STD that you could bittersweetly triumph about to your buddies.

What a dumbass..... And the cell phone guy is just as bad. :p

I'd be pissed, too, but I wouldn't blame it on everyone else. I doubt that it was super clear to the guy the particulars of his service, but you know it was in there somewhere. It was awesome of the company to take down the charges by so many thousands; he should just shut up and pay at this point.
