13-year-old Cheyenne resident Dena Christoffersen managed to send 10,000 text messages in the span of a month, leaving her father with a bill for $4,756.25 due to a lack of a texting plan and the belief that it was not able to send them at all.
"It just hit us like a rock, like you're stepping into a bus," said father Gregg. "She went from A's and B's one semester to F's in two months." Soon after he got the bill he smashed her phone with a hammer. Dena is also grounded until school ends.
"I felt really bad, and I have learned my lesson." An improvement in her grades has occurred since the texting stopped. Verizon knocked down the bill which is now more reasonable. Her parents want to see a crackdown by the school on cell phone use.
Ok, problem number one….THE FATHER is partly trying to blame the school. Problem number two….if your child is sending over 300 hundred text messages a day, how do you not notice that?!?!?!
Last but not least….somebody has a $4800 whuppin coming!!!
