13-Year-Old Reina Hardesty Sends 14,528 Text Mesages In a Month
The father of a California teenager recently found out that his 13-year-old daughter sent more than 14,000 text messages in a month. The father of Reina Harvesty was shocked when he received a 440-page phone bill stating that the girl has sent a total of 14,528 texts in a month. That's a total of one text message every two waking minutes.
"First, I laughed. I thought, 'That's insane, that's impossible',"the 45-year-old told The New York Post.
"And I immediately whipped out the calculator to see if it was humanly possible.
Then I thought maybe AT&T made some mistake on the bill,"
However, there was no mistake and the online AT&T statement ran to 440 pages.
So who was Reina Hardesty texting?
Hardesty said Reina had messaged a core of "four obsessive texters," all girls between the ages of 12 and 13. Lucky for him, he was on an unlimited text messaging plan or his bill would have been $2,905 at a rate of 20 cents per message, the Post reported.
Although it didn't cost him anything, Mr. Hardesty has clamped down on his daughter's text message habits. He says that she is no longer allowed to send texts after dinner time.
