OMG! What's a father to do?

My daughter racked up 14,528 text messages in one month.
Greg Hardesty of Silverado Canyon, Calif is more than speechless. He's textless. The PDF version of his family's cellular bill from Nov. 27 to Dec. 26, totaled 440 pages. Although three people are on the bill, his 13-year-old daughter Reina, right, alone racked up 14,528 text messages.
Thank God she's too young to drive.
I'm no math whiz, but I did some quick calculations on Reina's thumb-numbing total.
Assuming my daughter slept an average of eight hours during the billing period (she usually sleeps more), that works out to 484 text messages a day — or a text message every two minutes she was awake.
Could AT&T have made some mistake? Wishful thinking. It's all true, based on the PDF file I reviewed. I definitely am not LMAO (laughing my, er, butt off). One small consolation: The 14,528 total includes text messages both sent and received.
