300,000 Text Messages In One Month

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- A Sacramento County teenager is bragging about a big accomplishment. She logged more than 300,000 text messages in one month.

"Thank goodness for free texting," said her mother, Jacki Wiski, who just bought the iPhone for her daughter a month ago.

"I get cramps," Crystal said of her habit. Needless to say, it didn't take long for her to get used to it.

Her mother is amazed by the number of texts. "That's unbelievable," Jacki said. "She must text while she's sleeping."

"I am popular. I can't help it," Crystal added.

To put 303,000 text messages into perspective: that's more than 10,000 text messages a day, 421 messages an hour and seven texts a minute. KCRA-TV news even timed her.

Jacki said despite her daughter's addiction, it doesn't stop her from holding down a full-time job. It also has not affected her grades: "She has a 40-hour-a-week job and straight A's," Jacki said.

Anyone besides me think the girl needs a life?

I just wonder, if she is that bright what she could accomplish if she didn't text-but applied herself in other areas.
Just like kid computer hackers-if you could only harness that talent for good!
