Molly And The Cell Phone ARGHHHH!
If you have a teenage daughter or son you might have an idea where I am going with this.
Open the phone bill the other night and even though we have unlimited texting plan, my wife and I were still shocked by the amount of text messages that were sent and received by Molly.
8, 574. OK, maybe not a world record, but, that amount of message in one month? I asked her who are you texting? Of course I got the standard teen response. Friends dad. how many are you texting at once? She said up to 5 or 6 at a time. You can carry on a 6 way text conversation but you cannot listen to me or your mother for 5 minutes? I got the “duh look” in return. Hmmm.
Maybe I need to really look closer. But I did notice that she can do homework, watch TV, listen to the latest tunes off of her phone and text all at the same time without missing a beat.
I am not even that talented. So I decided to look at my son’s part of the bill. No where close. Only like 127. I can deal with that. How many parents are dealing with a teen who cannot tear away from the texting monster?
