Anger Management and Phone Bills

Phone bills are a constant source of annoyance, but this is an extreme reaction in any book:

Verizon customer shoots phone over $3,300 data charge

CLEVELAND, Ohio - A Verizon Wireless phone bill triggered so much rage within Robert Able that he ended his relationship with the company in a unique way.

He shot his phone.

"I was upset. I was really upset,'' Able said. "I have a few things going on, and it really hurt me.''

He said he became so angry over the bill while talking to a Verizon customer service representative that he grabbed his shotgun and fired a round of birdshot into the phone outside of his home.
