A bundle of no joy

A Canadian woman is suing her mobile phone provider for $600,000 for bundling her mobile phone bill with the family's cable TV account with the same provider without her consent, thereby enabling her husband to discover an affair she was having. She had been billed separately for her mobile phone, under her maiden name, but after her husband added internet to the account her mobile phone usage was included on the same invoice as the TV and internet. Her husband then saw several hour-long phone calls to a single number on the invoice. He rang the number, and the 'third party' admitted the affair. He then left the matrimonial home.

Needless to say, the mobile phone provider is denying any liability.

Moral of the story: If you're having an affair, use a different mobile provider.
