Fastest Thumbs In The South

I pay my daughter's cellphone bill. She can pay it when she goes back to work later this month. (Yay!)

I thought I'd been getting off relatively easy. There's the monthly fee and I add a message bundle of 1000 TEXTS for $9.99. I've been burned before by my over-zealous talkative, text-happy, thumbs-flyin' teenager so the package deal is terrific. Who could possibly use more than 1000 texts in a month?

Yep. She's used 1000 texts in 10 days! Sigh...

I'm looking for a little sympathy here! Please tell me you can relate!

That's 100 a day. One phone call would do the same job probably.
Our problem is the two 20 year olds calling their friends' mobiles from the house phone/landline. Hundreds of dollars per month in calls. "Oh, but I didn't have credit on my phone". Well tough, don't make the call then.

The kids should try and plan out their calls to say all you have to say instead of talking for the sake of talking. That 100 texts a day is actually 50 texts from Sky plus 50 incoming texts from whomever she's conversing with. But still... lots of phone use.

but but but . . . the kids have to stay connected!!! I cannot believe how QUICK they are with those little thumbs either. I occasionally text with the nieces. Sheesh. Takes me five minutes to compose, they answer within 30 seconds!
