Shauna: I thought you had a good calling, messaging, and data plan. Paul: I do, but I’m still going over each month. Shauna: Have you thought about a prepaid plan? You’ll never be charged extra. Paul: That’s not an option. I think I need an unlimited plan. Shauna: Okay, but I don’t understand. Why do you have roaming charges? Doesn’t your carrier have good coverage all over the country? Paul: I’ve been taking trips to Mexico to see my new girlfriend and the coverage doesn’t extend to Mexico. Shauna: Oh, I see. And the overage charges? Paul: When you’re in a long-distance relationship, you have to do a lot of calling and texting, not to mention updating social media websites to stay in touch. I keep exceeding my allotted 5000 minutes of calling time and 100 megabytes of data. Shauna: What?! To exceed that, you’d have to be on the phone all the time! Paul: Not all the time, but I’m talking to her now. Do you want to say “hi”? Shauna: You’ve been on the phone with her the entire time we’ve been having this conversation? Paul: How else can we keep up on everything that’s going on in each other’s lives? Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
