Google is the Best Detective Tool - EVER!

It's amazing how you know your son is lying.

Updated my personal bank account passbook today, and found a strange $452.68 debit.

When I enquired at my bank - the debit was from my cable/phone/Internet (all the same company) direct payment plan.

Trotted over to see them to enquire - and found out that a number of long distance calls and collect calls where made.

Background - pay for my EX's cable/phone/Internet for the son since now-a-days these are near necessarities for a teen.

Call the EX but neither she nor he (son) made any long distance calls or excepted any collect calls. Asked a second time insisting that I would call the number. All calls out and collect calls were to & from the same place.

Answer... Not me, I didn't!

please note in one month - 5029 minutes in long distance & collect calls!

Next step: call the numbers... no answer.

Next step: Google... type number in, plus province.

hmmm... 1 match... a personal home page... click... hmmm... kind of cute, though a little too young for me.

What's this... Damien Brown (son's name) is my boyfriend and I love him so much... and... (the clincher) we talk every day and almost all weekend when his mum isn't home... Damien number XXX-XXXX.

Talk about being stupid... that's the number I pay for.

Thanks Googleguy... that took 0.8 seconds to query and 5 minutes reading.

So what should I do?

my kids are as good as gold most of the time. one day i'd made a chocolate cake. left it in the kitchen while i did some tidying up. went back in the kitchen found finger holes all over it. kids smothered in chocolate denied all knowledge.
"do you think i'm stupid?" i asked
"yes" they both replied

Crazy_Fool - you are another poster that I refused to read their posts again -- while drinking coffee.

Wiping off the monitor was easy... the keyboard's a different matter!

I'd do one of the following:

since you know her name write your son some very strange love letters from her.

use her name as your new girlfriends name and tell your son all about her -- describe her to a tee.

take her pic and go to cafe press and print an nice t-shirt for you and your ex to wear. add her phone number too.

go to your sons school or local hang out and in all the bathroom stalls write "For a good time call XXX-XXXX"
