Controller-Chewing Dog Spends Money on Xbox Live
When you adopt a dog, you expect to drop some cash on things like food, visits to the vet, and maybe chew toys. But one man's best friend drained his bank account in an unexpected way.
According to Kotaku, a man named Greg says his one-year-old dog, Oscar, purchased 5,000 points on his Xbox Live account, totaling $62.50, while the owner slept in the next room. Somehow, the lab/hound mix (pictured above) managed to spend the money simply by chewing on the plastic controller. Greg says he woke up the next morning to read an e-mail confirming his purchase. After initially being angry, he just laughed it off. Instead of pleading with Microsoft for a refund, he just decided to purchase some new video games and a replacement controller with the points.
While it may be hard to believe, dogs have done much more amazing things than this. If only Greg's pup could've been more heroic like Lassie and less dim-witted like Odie. Let's just hope Oscar doesn't develop an expensive Halo habit. [From: Kotaku]
LOL! That makes our dogs look good! :)
I know, right? How does chewing a tiny corner compare to that? But I have thought about ordering one or two movies on the remote... Think they would notice?
mama wasn't real happy with me when I chewed up the ear thing with the flashing blue light -- I think it was because john-daddy wasn't happy with mama when I chewed up her ear thing. I will have to research the ordering thing. I know that mama has ordered stuff from itunes in her sleep -- well sort of sleepy anyway. I'm sure that there are all kinds of things I could do since there are so many buttons to push at our house.
Rocky, it is the numbers that baffle me.... otherwise, when that Omaha meat ad comes on... one quick call I would be in heaven!!! Some day... some day....
