G'day all,

Have a squiz at this one - 14,500+ in a month!

A Californian father was left speechless when he discovered his teenage daughter had sent an astonishing 14,528 text messages in one month.

Greg Hardesty thought there was a mistake with his 13-year-old daughter Reina's online phone bill when it stretched for 440 pages.

"First, I laughed: I thought, 'That's insane, that's impossible'," the New York Post reported the 45-year-old father as saying.

"And I immediately whipped out the calculator to see if it was humanly possible."

Reina's freakish month of texting equates to over 480 messages sent a day — or around one every two minutes for every waking hour.

Thankfully for Mr Hardesty's hip pocket, he had signed his daughter to an unlimited texting plan for $30 [A$42] a month — otherwise he figures AT&T would have slugged him with a $2,905.60 [A$4,113.13] bill.

"A lot of my friends have unlimited texting — I just text them pretty much all the time," Reina explained to her parents.

She said her texting had skyrocketed because she was bored on winter break and admitted to sending a bunch of messages to brag about her enormous effort.

The student has since been banned from sending SMS after dinner.
That's one busy and bored kid.
