Our family has cell phones like most folks these days.
The hubby, he barley knows how to make a call let alone text
anyone so he doesn't text at all.
Me, I can text, but don't/wont generally send one.
Now if you sent me one I'll reply back to it, but that's all.
Our eldest son, Colton does text.
We had him on the 4.99 a month 250 text messages plan
and that was fine.
Last week when the Grandparents were here I got a phone
call (not a text) from our cell provider.
They wanted to advise me of Colton's phone usage.
He had for the month of August,
which had barely began at the time of this call,
And we would be billed for an additional 84 bucks!!
I about fell over!
With a little plan changing he is now on the
5000 texts a month for 19.99 a month
and we don't owe the 84 bucks.
Colton and I had a HUGE come to Jesus meeting
about this issue.
I want him to have a phone so I can call him and he can
call us, right?
But I will have texting eliminated from his phone if he
goes over the 5000 texts a month even once.
What is the fascination with texting?
When you talk to someone on the phone you are
honing your communication skills and actually
dealing with people.
When you text what do you do type?
and badly at that?
When I was a teen we talked on the phone at every
opportunity. You could tell from the tone
of your BFF's voice how she felt about something
remember those long conversations with that
How does texting measure up to all that I asked Colton
and he said "Mom talking on the phone is for your generation
and texting is for mine."
I must be getting old.
Do you text?
P.S. Today's text tally is now up to 1922!
Gone up over 800 texts in less than a week.
What is up with this you ask.
He has a new love interest..
