I wonder what the world record is?

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- A Sacramento County teenager is bragging about a big accomplishment.



She logged more than 300,000 text messages in one month.

"My friends said, 'Text your little thumbs off'," Crystal Wiski said.

"Thank God for free texting," added her mother, Jacki Wiski.

Jacki Wiski said she just bought the iPhone for her daughter a month ago.

"I get cramps," Crystal Wiski said of her habit.

Needless to say, it didn't take long for her to get used to it.

Her mother is amazed by the number of texts.

"Oh my God, that's unbelievable," Jacki Wiski said. "She must text while she's sleeping."

"I am popular. I can't help it," Crystal Wiski added.

To put 303,000 text messages into perspective: that's more than 10,000 text messages a day, 421 messages an hour and seven texts a minute.

KCRA 3 even timed her.

"I don't talk on the phone that much," Crystal Wiski said.

Jacki Wiski said despite her daughter's addiction, it doesn't stop her from holding down a full-time job. It also has not affected her grades.

"She has a 40-hour-a-week job and straight As," Jacki Wiski said.

As for Crystal, she said she graduates in few weeks and hasn't decided what's next.

If you calculate the more than 300,000 text messages at 10 cents a text, she would owe more than $30,000. Unlimited texting has definitely helped in this case.

Jacki Wiski said her son has the second most texts at 3,000.

I guess I don't understand this text craze. Isn't it just easier to talk to people instead of pushing all those little buttons?

This... 99% of the time, I would rather just drop you a quick text, than spend 15 minutes on the phone with you.

That's easy. It's giving a hand job and steering with her knees while doing it that's impressive.

Random thoughts after reading this story....

Not many high school seniors can handle a 40 hour a week job. Has anybody ever heard of a teen working 40 hours and going to school.

Also...if she has a 40 hour a week job + school, when does she even find the time to text.

Finally....if she does in fact have a full-time job, shouldn't she be buying her own iPhone?

So that works out to 7 texts a minute, every minute of the month, and that doesn't affect her school or work?

Absolute bullshit.

Damn, why does she waste time with texting?

I used some of my free time doing productive things like playing Intellevision and Nintendo. ROFL


Unless she did mass texting to 100-150 people at a time with short messages I call "BS!"

can someone please explain how it is possible to send seven texts a minute for an entire month while at the same time working 40 hours per week and getting straight A's? do all of the texts have one letter in them?

But by texting people you get to let them know what you're doing/thinking all the time. Being in class doesn't stop hyou. It's ridiculous, kinda like twitter. I refuse to text/twitter.

Whats your number? I'll have some of my coworkers give you a call and you'll see why texting is important.

Also, I bet her job is to send ads over texts. Otherwise she would be on her phone the entire time shes at work and I wouldn't want someone like that working for me.......now I gotta get back to entering invoices.

When we say 7 texts per minute, that's just an average. I'm sure she has hour-long blocks of literally nothing but texting that allow her to remain productive at school and work and maintain the average. I'm sure she's still texting frequently during school and work, but not enough to become a major distraction.

300,000 is a shit ton of texts, but it's not unthinkable.

yes it is.

that time also includes sleeping, eating, and showering. it is absolutely unbelievable.

I don't see how this is even possible if she were doing nothing but texting 20 hours a day, every day, for 31 days it would still require more than 8 texts a minute (or one about every 7.5 seconds).

Bring it down to 16 hours a day and it's 10 a minute (one every six seconds). For 16 hours. Every day. For a month.

People have way too much time on their hands to text.

And post on message boards.

And post about texting.

The standard is set: I want to post 301,000 posts on CP in one month.

I'm sure she texts while eating and has figured out a way to text while showering.

She probably averages two per minute during the day and then bumps up to double digits per minute in her free time.

My daughter averages about 10k each month, but incoming texts also count as part of the number. Im pretty sure that's how it works on all carriers, incoming and outgoing are all counted together.

This really made me want to punch her in the face.
