Monday 12 March 2012: Should have kept an eye on young....
Bryn and Zak
being an accessory to the crime before discovering that he had spent....... big drum roll £200 on an app that is on the iPad, app being Dragon Vale if your interested, you get gems and jewels for the game which act as money to buy stuff, you can earn it, but little Bryn being an impatient so and so decided he wanted to buy some with hard cash i agreed to 20 of these gems at £1.69 and he was told not to click on the buttons anymore cause i didn't want any horrendous bills!!! famous last words He did keep clicking i think 2 of these clicks cost £69.99!!
So where does Zak fit into this crime??
Zak........ Bryn are you gonna tell mum what you've done??
Me.......... What have you done Bryn
Bryn..... all sheepish, Nothing
Bryn...... Ok i may have bought some Gems!!
Zak........... Yeah about 100 punds worth!!
I don't think i need to explain here that at this point i went slightly red and almost self combusted and i think my have raised my voice!! I then went onto my iTunes account to discover the full amount, Both of them were sent to their rooms until i decided their fates!!
Now i know i should have kept an eye on him and he did know my password and he doesn't comprehend how much he has actually spent on it even though i keep saying, so Bryn with that £200 you could have bought 4 games for your playstation, a geko and everything for it!! He still doesn't get it he's only 8, but my point being is that yes it's my fault, but it is also the app producers for making it so easy for kids to do this at a click of a button. Our friend who designs apps said that it is something that is going to change as there was something on watch dog! So hopefully it will be sorted out soon!!!
But in the mean time i am thinking i could have bought a new lens, some shoes lots of them some clothes lots of them, the list goes on and i'm not gonna dwell on it and be angry but you know what life is to short and i really can't stay angry for to long especially when said child was posting sorry notes and love you lots notes under the door!!!
Moral of my story just be careful with these games it's far to easy to just click the button!!
