Official - O2 customers are twelve-thumbed texting whores
It seems our avid Bitterwallet readers are singularly responsible for the upkeep of O2. In the past day, customers have been receiving texts from the network operator, explaining how wonderful O2 are, and what a huge favour they do for customers by offering free texts. You lucky people. And thank God they do, frankly, because our avid readers are a pack of SMS sluts. Where does Andy in Sheffield find the time?
He's not the only one; Stuart Hill from Derby sent 16,035 texts last month, and Mrs Hill sent over 23,000. Avid reader Idris beats them all into a cocked hat, however - his thumbs are bleeding stumps of cartilage and bone after firing off 180,504 texts last month:
"By my count, to send 180,504 texts in a month, I would have to send just over four text messages every minute, for thirty days, without a break. and if I was charged for them, I would be paying over £21,000."
They're obviously all perverts, organising secret yankee doodle in laybys. That, or O2's Textotron 3000™ is banjaxed again.
