Ok, here’s the story:
I call my gf for about 15 min a day, long distance. It’s not very expensive, maybe 4 or 5 cents a min.
My parents say I can’t call my gf anymore because the phone bill is too high.
My sister calls long distance to one of her friends (I mean REALLY long distance) for an hour at a time. This is the real reason our phone bill is too high.
I get blamed because I’m the one on the phone for 20 min** every** night while my sister is only on every other night (for an hour long distance).
My parents call my gf’s parents and make it so I can’t talk to her, they won’t let me talk to her at all now.
I tried to tell my parents that 50 cents a day (especially when I usually pay for most of the phone bill, my sister’s part included) isn’t that bad, and if they didn’t want me to call long distance to my gf’s house they should’ve reconsidered sending me to a school so far away, if I had stayed at the school where I used to go it would not be long distance to my friends. It’s expected that I make friends where I go to school and it’s expected that I talk to them out of school. I can’t think of a way around that, it’s just normal.
