A 13-year-old girl in Orange County sent 14,528 text messages in a single month! It was such a large and obscene number that her dad initially thought it was an error of some sort.  He then busted out the calculator.

“Assuming my daughter slept an average of eight hours during the billing period (she usually sleeps more), that works out to 484 text messages a day — or a text message every two minutes she was awake” said her father.

Luckily, the family had unlimited text messaging.  Otherwise at 20 cents each, the girl’s text messages would have totaled $2,905.60. I don’t have kids but can totally picture myself killing my daughter if I were to see a phone bill for that amount.  Crazy.
