imagine my dismay, checking my phone minutes, to find over 1700 minutes used up by the teenage daughter alone. (by comparison the middle child’s father, used about 245 total, and i have used 35 daytime and about 800 night and weekend. i’m really good about the night and weekend, you know.)
and i realize something must be done. it’s ridiculous to spend the last week of every month admonishing my other two phone-holders to turn your phone off between 7AM and 8PM dammit and stress because i can’t really tell how many daytime minutes we’re over, i just know it’s bad. so i took action.
now the next plan up is 2000 anytime/13000 night and weekend. i can’t help thinking this is counterproductive on sprint’s part, since merely saying ‘unlimited’ would be much less of a challenge. you can’t do much about unlimited. but you can damn sure take a shot at thirteen thousand. ok, i admit at least one of my co-workers thinks i need serious therapy for thinking that a project to have a 15000 minute phonebill is something amusing, but he thinks i need serious therapy anyway, so pttthbt.
it’s 216.66 night/weekend hours, is all it is. it can be used up playing silly wireless internet trivia games, or making long rambling three-way calls between the phones on the plan to use up triple minutes, and i’m sure i can find some people who feel like babbling endlessly on the phone late nights. so starting on the fifth of this month, it’s all about the Project To Use Up All Those Minutes. anyone wanting to participate can mail me their number whenever (between 8PM and 7AM weekdays and all weekend that is) and we’ll chat and chat.
or maybe i’ll just seek therapy.
