Flash Company Lyr Req: Song Challenge: The 30k Phone bill (6) Lyr Req: Song Challenge: The 30k Phone bill 29 Dec 07

Seems that a 29 year old Yorkshire man,Ian Simpson aided and abetted by his local geek, worked out a way to connect up his Mobile phone to his laptop and use it to download movies via his Vodaphone internet link.
What he didn't realise was that his contract didn't offer unlimited internet access.
He says' OK, so I probably downloaded 20 or 30 TV shows and a few music albums, but then Vodaphone cut me off. When I rang to query it they said you owe us nearly 30,000 quid. I thought they were joking, but they weren't'
The total bill was 27,322.
The good news is (for him) that Vodaphone have said 'Don't do it again!' and cancelled the bill. What that will do to every one else's Vodaphone bills, I don't know.

I got my mobile telephone and dialed Ian Siimpson's number,
And it went Brrr, brrr,brrr,brrr busy line,
I thought 'He's downloading films again, he'll get himself in lumber,
With all that brrr, brrr, brrr,brrr busy line

There must be more where that came from, but I'm suffering from writers block.
