Bees, I need some calming down or just vent maybe. DH is a teacher and went out of town to a conference. He called me last night, we talked, and I let him go because I was so tired, and he needed to go to sleep as well.
We used to have 4GB of data on our Verizon plan, but weren’t using anywhere near, so to save a measly 10 bucks I dropped it down to 2GB shared.
My phone went off this morning at 6:44 and it was a text from Verizon saying I was at 52% usage. I get another 10 minutes later saying I was at 76% usage. At this point I am freaking out a little and decided to call Verizon. Even though my name is on the account they needed DH’s social, which I had to get a hold of him for. The rep said he’d call me back in 15 minutes. When I got off the phone Verizon had sent yet ANOTHER message saying I was now at 90% of my usage.
I called DH and said, “We’re at 90% usage, and I know you use more data than I do, but seriously what the heck did you do?” He got really quiet and said, “It’s my fault, and I’m sorry.” Apparently, the hotel room was hot, so DH couldn’t fall asleep. He was also feeling “a little lonely” and decided to watch a video–on his phone–a phone with the data cap.
I said, “Did you not have your computer?” He said he did, but being it is a school computer he didn’t want to use that. Good call on his part, but still a completely irresponsible move anyway. I asked, “Why did this go up so much this morning?” He said, “I watched one last night and one this morning.” He told me where from and what it contained.
He apologized for watching porn, and I’m just like I really don’t care. To me, there is nothing dirty or wrong with porn. I am just upset at the fact that he watched it on his phone and now we have to turn off our mobile networks until the 19th of February. He used 1.8GB himself of our 2GB data plan.
He was pretty embarrassed when I called him out on it, and he felt really bad. I told him it makes me upset that I am the one that has to be responsible and on a Saturday morning where I can FINALLY sleep in I have to call Verizon and own up to my data usage because my husband couldn’t watch Netflix on his computer to fall asleep instead of using his phone.
I’m so upset with the irresponsibility of it all. I make sure to watch our usage like a hawk. I only use mine for work. They pay $30 a month of my bill so I can use it for work, and now I cannot even do that because of the ridiculous situation DH created. Granted it will only be $15 a gig if we go over, but every penny counts when you’re buying a house and it is the fact of the matter. Even the sweetest and most innocent of men can be real idiots sometimes.
