It seems like the boys of One Direction can’t keep their hands off their cellphones as they reportedly racked up £14,000 (just over $22,000 U.S.D.) in roaming charges while on tour.
I can’t bring myself to be too hard on the boys as they’ve been traveling so much these days. They’ve been all over North America, Australia and New Zealand —quite a ways away from their homeland of the United Kingdom. It’s expensive to try to keep in touch with family, girlfriends, and fans all over the world. The roaming charges for minutes alone seem a bit outrageous.
Apparently, the boys were stunned to see the bill and were afraid to have to foot it themselves. Instead, their management (a.k.a. Simon Cowell) let them off light and lectured them about being financially responsible. Now they’ll remember not to use their cellphones too often when abroad.
