~ Texting ~

Did you know the average teenager sends about 1,700 text messages a MONTH? Well, my dear sweet genius is one of those. We previously had a limit of 300 per month. That didn't last very long because we received a HUGE...I mean HUGE phone bill. The Genius sent 1,662 text messages in ONE month. Do you know what her reply was when Mister asked her how this happened ( she knew the limit )~ " I thought I only sent like 15 messages."... 15 out of 1,662? LOL! :) Well, we made a new deal w/Sprint and now have unlimited texting and thankfully no more suprise phone bills.


On with my story~ the genius & I text each other quite a bit now. She leaves for school about 1 1/2 earlier than I leave for work and she 'borrows' my things. So I send her messages like~

"here are my teezers?"

Huh? The 'W, S & Z' are no longer working on my Palm Treo....






She texted me back with ???????

My message was supposed to say~

" Where are my tweezers "....lol.

Who looks like the genius now? Yikes, hurry Sprint send me my new phone! :)

Have a "uper" day ( that's text for Super )


Hugs~ J

I miss talking to you every day! You're much better than me, I don't even know how to send a text message! I don't even have a cell phone anymore bz I'm always with one of the kids who will have one on them. I use Larry's when I go out of town. SIGH, I so need a life right now. LOL!

My nephew drives me nuts texting. He will be sitting there talking to you and all the while he is typing away. Sorry I try not to be a stick in the mud aunt but I told him it had to quit, talk to me and put that away.
I love him to pieces so I hope that makes up for me being just a bit of a stick in the mud.

By the way it's not funny about your phone bill...it's funny about your text not reading what they are supposed to. I bet it can be downright hilarious at times.
