Child For Sale

For Sale: One slightly used, 12 year old, female child. Relatively good child, however cannot be trusted with a cell phone.

That's right, I have to put Sarah up for sale in order to pay her cell phone bill. I found out yesterday that Sarah has been text messaging and using internet features on her new cell phone. She has only had this phone for two weeks and these extra charges she has accumulated are going to cost around $600. That's right! $600 in addition to our regular cell phone bill. Right now, I am seriously regretting adding her phone onto my plan. I should have just let my mother get a separate plan for Sarah so I wouldn't be affected by things like this. But, no, I thought I'd be nice and save her some money by adding Sarah onto my plan and letting my mother just pay the difference. What a mistake that was!

Oh! Holy Crap! I don't even know what I would do in that situation. I'd probably threaten to sell her to the gypsy's next time they come a-knockin'!

oh my, I would have picked up the phone and tossed it in the garbage, right then and there and I believe 6 months worth of chores are in order, to work it off. This kind of thing happens to me all the time...except it's my HUSBAND doing it, not my child.
