Lunch Science, Cellphone-napping

Chance lunch partner Alan shared with me a few tidbits...

Food-related expenditures rose only about 2% annually, while spending on communication and cellphone prepaid cards rose 15%. It looks like some folks would rather txt or send SMS than eat out.

Some household helpers, after excitedly gaining access to an old cellphone and engaging in nightly texting marathons with their families in the province, their boyfriends or their barkada, ended up funneling their monthly wages to prepaid card sellers.

Yep, lots of folks have been bitten by the text bug.

Brand new cellphones go for P4,000 and upwards, so stolen cellphones easily sell for around P2,000 to P2,500 -- ask a number of factory workers and you'll discover that they'll still buy such "cheap" goods.

Sheesh. Wat r s dis wrld cmng 2?
