A Polish bus driver was fired, because he used his company cell phone to send 38,000 text messages. The reason? A contest ... he hoped to win 100,000-zloty ($36,000). Instead, he racked up 94,000 zlotys ($34,000) in text message charges.
I guess in Poland you can't get an unlimited SMS-message account for a reasonable fee ... otherwise to me it would be: why didn't you use your own phone? And he's lucky they don't seem to be asking for him to pay for it ... even if he had won he would only have had a profit of about 6,000 zlotys ($2,000) if they had forced him to pay for it.
