I think it started last summer when I had no job. (Ahhhh those were the days….) Since I wasn’t in front of a computer or by my work phone, my communication with friends and family during the day ended up on my cell phone. I have a contract with very few daytime minutes since I’ve never needed many. When my bill jumped from $60 to $200+, the time had come to upgrade. I picked up unlimited texting because it was the cheapest option on a upgrade for my plan instead of increasing my minutes.
I think the most txts I racked up one month was 1800+. Yes, a bit ridiculous, but it averaged out to about 50+ a day. When you have NOTHING to do but sit at the pool with a cocktail or hit golf balls all day while all your friends are working, you do get a bit bored and want some type of communication with other humans. Well, I’ve got nothing on this chick, Emily Jennings. 41,600 in one month?! Take your daughter’s phone away! Put a golf club or tennis racket in her hand. I “ran some numbers” on this and it’s she was sending 1341 a day!
I’m happy to report, I’m down to a modest 800 per month.
