Did you know that there are controls on your iPhone that can be used to stop your three year old from purchasing in-app items?
Anyway, happy Father's Day to all of the Dads out there, I hope everyone had a great time, the beer flowed cold and the grills burned hot. It's funny the difference between Father's Day and Mother's Day, on Mother's Day, they get breakfast in bed, flowers and pampering and on Father's Day we slave cooking our own dinner on the grill...just kidding, my day was really good actually and the Trophy made an awesome homemade supper.
We ended up staying home all day because, well we couldn't afford to go anywhere but it was a fun time. The Minions cleaned up around the house...a little and we had a nice roast pork dinner with mashed potatoes, corn and for dessert, homemade Boston Cream Pie. I love the Trophy.
But there was one thing that that tested my Dad patience today. I woke up and checked my email like I normally do and a midst my daily comics and Scouting emails there was an invoice from iTunes, which in itself isn't odd because we do buy songs and apps, but recently we haven't been because we are trying to save money. Needless to say we haven't purchased anything from iTunes in over a month and normally I delete the email because I know what we purchased but this one I decided to open and good thing I did...
Minion #3 has this nasty little habit of grabbing things that are not his like toys, food...iPhones. Well we went over a friend's house for dinner last night and #3 got a hold of the Trophy's phone and started playing Angry Birds Space. How do I know he was playing Angry Birds Space you ask? Because when I woke up this morning I had to spend 30 minutes on the phone with Apple...and not the Geniuses, to get $29.99 plus tax back for an in-app purchase. What kind of idiot offers thirty dollar in-app purchases? I guess I should be asking myself what kind of idiot doesn't have parental control on their electronic devices? That's a simple answer...us.
Anyway, 30 minutes and a long lecture from the Apple person, we got our money back and they pulled the in-app purchase out. Happy Father's Day from the Minions.
Oh and Happy Father's Day Dad...I miss you....
