Buzzzzz – notification of Twitter posting from a child. 1:37PM <<<< TWO minutes
@daughter’s account: I don’t always snapchat, but when I do I’m probably bored on a tractor and they shouldn’t be opened in public #icantsing #sorrynotsorry
“She’s on Twitter and SNAPCHAT?!?!?” (all numbers on the account get the overage notification) “%$*&@#$ Sucking my bandwidth #$@%&#”
Me: jumping on twitter (yes I see the hypocrisy) @TheBlondeKB: @daughter’s account. You are also sucking my bandwidth to the tune on $15/GB over!! #damnkids
INSTANT phone text message from Kate
Kate: Please stop momming my tweets
Me: Bwahahaha! No Way!
So I jump back to Twitter – If you’ve got the stick, might as well poke something, right?
