A Teen Addicted to Texting Sends 15,000 Messages a Month

On average, how many text messages would you guesstimate you send each month? I would say I average about five or more a day, so I probably max out at around 150 - 200 per month. Well Paige Horne, a 15-year-old from Ohio, averages about 15,000 texts a month — that's even more than what the 13-year-old National Texting Champ sends! According to NewsNet5, Paige plays volleyball and basketball and her GPA is above 3.0, and yes, she is a lightening fast texter.

"I just don't look. I guess I had the phone a long time and I just know where the buttons are and I just hit them," she said. Thankfully for her parents, she's under an unlimited phone plan where texting is included, but I can't help but ask what she's doing for all her sore fingers?

When she realizes that she does not have the communication skills to actually interact with another human being is going to be a sad day for her. I mean, is this how she is going to start dating as well?
