365/170 Crime & Punishment

I took a look at our AT&T account, just like I promised I would. Our billing cycle is from the 18th of the month to the 17th of the next.

I was logging on to check last month’s usage when I discovered that since June 18th, we {as in the whole family} have texted 634 times {just two days!} It breaks down like this: Hubby 2, MJ 4, Me 14, JD 614.

The amount of texts was a shock but not as much as the crime itself.  JD is not allowed to text, email, call, or web surf after 10 p.m. on school nights and 11 p.m. on non-school nights. In those 2 days, there were 80 texts afterhours, some as late as 1:30 am. He had been told, up front, that for every text after hours, he would lose his phone for one day. What was he thinking???


This means that he has now lost his phone until September 7th. And for “lying” to me about what time he was going to bed every night, he lost his PC, Wii and PS3 for 2 weeks. {I call it lying; he insists he is adhering to the contract terms of being in bed by the 11. He never agreed to go to sleep by 11} Maybe he should be a lawyer after all Smile

Hubby has given him a bit of an out. For every mile he runs, he can get his phone back a day earlier.  I wouldn’t be surprised to see him sign up for a marathon next weekend Smile
