… sometimes I wonder how she manages to keep both shoes on her feet.
Two weeks my 15 year old lost her mobile at school (she’s not allowed to have it on at school and if we notice a call during school hours she would go without for a week).
We made a deal with her about the mobile. If she lost it or broke it it was up to her to replace it OR pay the fees, about $10 a month for her line, until the contract is up.
So, when she lost it we found a new replacement would cost about $125. That’s money she just doesn’t have. My wife managed to get a mobile through her work for free except the cost of shipping and activation - about $20.
Good deal for my daughter.
It arrived yesterday and I called and had it activated. She spent the night getting all the numbers programmed in and fussing with it happy in the fact she’s got her mobile back.
Today she’s leaving for school and my wife says “don’t lose your phone”. My daughter laughed and said how stupid she’d feel if she lost it again.
Are you getting an idea where this story is going yet?
She left a message on my wifes mobile today that said sheepishly “you… um… better call and… um… put the account on… umm… hold again”
That’s right. 5 hours after leaving the house this morning the phone was gone.
