When I was in Budapest, I of course had my Blackberry on me at all times.  I was at dinner on the 3rd night, when Here Comes The Hotstepper played on it, indicating I had e-mail at my super important e-mail address, which I generally have to respond to immediately.  After checking it, someone asked me

“You’re not using your Blackberry for e-mail over here, are you?”

“Yeah……..why?”

“International data transfer rates.  It’s like $2 a kilobyte.  How many e-mails do you get in a day?”

“About um……..400.”

So yeah, since coming back from Budapest I’ve been shiting myself waiting for my Rogers bill to arrive.  I probably could have called them and asked, but really I was too scared to.  Much like how you don’t get tested for cancer – you’d just rather not know.  Then this evening that e-mail arrived – “Your Rogers Bill is now available”, and I took a deep breath and opened it….

$283.41.

WHEW.

I was seriously expecting a 6 figure sum.  Apparently I DON’T get charged for receiving e-mails however – only if I am browsing the web or doing text messages or using Blackberry Messenger.  That’s what cost the extra – it bumped my bill up by about $161.

I’m almost disappointed.  I’ve been practicing my “WAH WAH I DIDNT KNOW I AM SO NAIVE” phone call to Rogers for weeks now.

Whew.
