Beware Of Bored 13 Year Olds

Man alive! This young lady sent an astonishing 14,528 text messages in a single month, embarrassing her entire family, yes, but giving the New York Post the opportunity to use “lol” and “omg” in its story. It’s a great paper, really.
The girl, 13-year-old Reina, from California, sent the texts during her winter break because she was “bored.” Reading a book is out of the question for this girl, apparently.
Her dad, who’s a journalist at the local newspaper, did the math, and concluded that she must have sent 484 text messages per day. That’s one text every two minutes.
It’s a good thing her dad has the $30 AT&T unlimited text messages plan, otherwise he’d owe the company $2,905.60!
Ah, youth. The carefree days of sending text messages to your dumb friends, for no reason other than that you’re “bored.”
