Because I didn't.
You may even want to put on your glasses.
Because I did.
So Hannah has been hinting at the fact that she thinks her cellphone
not the cool one that all the other kids have,
needs to be replaced
because all the coating is worn on the outside of it.
Well, when you are carrying it around in your pocket,
texting during school when you're not supposed to be,
(ok - I admit I play along....I text her to see how fast she gets
back to me WHILE SHE IS SUPPOSED TO BE CONCENTRATING
ON HER CLASSWORK!!!!!!!!!!),
brings it to bed so she can text until...
and then text first thing when the sun shine hits her window.
Well, it looks like this:
I don't know. I'm thinking - it works right?
So she heads off to a birthday party yesterday,
cell phone in it's rightful place.
Her back pocket.
She gets in the place - I text her to see if she is good.
She texts me back - she is.
I text her - Have fun and love you.
She texts me back - Love you 2.
All is good. Until I am on my way to pick her up from the party,
and she call from someone else's phone.
Hers won't turn on. She had 4 bars/a full charge.
So as we gently lay our daughter on the floor
and slowly bring her back to life with the defibrillator
once we get back home,
we decide we will check out the Verizon plan to see what our options are.
So we start by pulling out the bill.
Now here is how it is here at the Herbst house regarding the bills.
I just don't look at the details....I don't want to see some of them.
The credit cards bills - well I look at those. I like to know the exact date
that WE are getting "punished" for the troubled economy and my once
very hard earned 7.99 interest rate is going to hit the roof at 24.99
Verizon. I don't look at anymore.
Let's just say it's a lot of money.
But a whole lot less money now
that we figured out how to get unlimited in and out
text messaging. So the bill is pretty consistent month to month.
So this is what we see:
Ok - let's flip back to page one now:
SIX THOUSAND SIX HUNDRED FIFTY FOUR unlimited texts.
(also take note of the lonely ol' 40 minutes actual talk time)
Scroll back up and take a look at that again.
Here is my phone:
Here is my phone:
I'm sitting here thinking real hard,
how the HELL did I send 352 texts...
and 13 pictures....
And yes - Hannah's new phone gets here tomorrow.
(gasp....what will she do all day today???)
