And You're Surprised By This?

I just saw this on the front page of Yahoo!. A story in the New York Post about how shocked a dad of a 13 year-old girl was when he got his cell phone bill with 440 pages of the 14, 528 text messages his daughter sent in one month.

Really? Is this still news to anyone with a teenager? Why, it was way back in October of 2007 when I wrote this post about getting my cell phone bill in a box and not in an envelope. It was after that month that I opted out of the paper bills. And signed up for unlimted text messaging.

By the way, Dad...those are both incoming and outgoing messages on your bill, so she's probably only sending about half of them. At some point, if you can't pry that phone out of her hand, you may have to have the phone surgically removed from her fingers.

I saw that article the other day and I thought of your daughter, Shanon. My daughter now has two cell phones, I cannot roll my eyes dramatically enough.
