14,528 Texts in a Month

The 13-year-old responsible for that said it could be called "excessive."

EXCESSIVE?  It's mind-blowing!

According to recent study I just read about, the average cell phone user sends less than 400 texts a month.  Even if you sent 400 texts a DAY, you'd only rack up 12,400 by the end of January.  What else in the world would you have time for?

You can all probably remember the days before texting; it didn't really catch on until a few years ago.  We had to make phone calls back then.  Now I'm not saying texting's not fun or useful - I send and receive around 400 texts a month - but I could certainly live without it.

Could you?
