Anyone get this text message from AT&T? Just thought it was a little humorous ;D
My son, hit the dictionary up and you'll hopefully understand that the humor really is all about you and your lack of understanding of the proper usage of certain words.

It looks to me like they didn't use the right tense though. "Unlimited send and receipt of text" should really be "Unlimited sending and receiving of text."

Son number two, (no poopy pun intended) you're wrong! Either use would be fine, but since they didn't use the word "sending," receipt is the correct word to use in their usage instance.

Much respect for coming back to the thread and owning up to forgetting the other meanings of the word. It's so lame when people make a thread that's slightly off point and then they get corrected and never show face on the thread again. Thanks for having a pair, dude... No harm, no foul.

Why would I leave? I've been here for about a year, just a lame fluke is all, besides it's the Internet. :D And thank you as well.

I love the fact the OP actually replied to an automated text message.
Well someone's gotta inform them of their non-mistakes!!!

That was a joke /: I was contemplating putting something there to state it was but I hoped it was obvious enough.

Not to rip on you but it's it's and there's capitalization for a reason. Haha, just not my day, cut a guy some slack, it's the cold I tell ya! But thanks for touching on the fact that it was a joke.
