Dad Hammers Cell Phone after Text Messaging Bill Arrives
According to reports, the father of a teen in Wyoming got angry when his daughter ran up an incredible bill with text messages. The bill was for $4,750 for Dena Christoffersen and her father who received 20,000 text messages during one month. The dad thought text messaging had been disabled for a plan that did not cover the service. The dad decided to get rid of the cell phone by smashing it with a hammer.
The daughter is now grounded for the remainder of the year although the mystery remains, how did she get away with texting 20,000 messages without anyone in the home noticing. According to newspaper reports she feels bad about all the money she wasted texting about her new clothes, what she was watching on television, what she thought about some boy at school. But if there’s a thought, it must be texted. So she’s most upset about having her father find out.
