I just HUGELY went over my Verizon data allowance by streaming something LONG on my iPhone 4s. How screwed am I $$-wise? What should I know before going to the Verizon store first thing in the morning to beg for some kind of mercy?

I'm on a low-usage iPhone plan with Verizon. I just watched a LONG Ustream of the Occupy Oakland General Assembly and forgot to switch my cellular data off and my WiFi on while at home. The one time I forget to switch and I have a moment of NEW PHONE DOES COOL STUFF! Ugh.
My cellular usage reads *GULP* 62.7 GB received. I just got this thing and am still learning how to fly it but OMFG, the website says $10/GB overage fees.
I'm going to go in to the Verizon store first thing in the morning when they open and throw myself on the mercy of the corporation. Is there anything I should know? Is there any hope or do I just have to eat this? Strategy? Any help is appreciated.
