Unfortunately, that's exactly what 16-year-old Annie Levitz from Mundelein, IL did. And now she requires cortisone injections and is going to need surgery. Yes, she needs surgery because she texted too damn much.

Her solution? Well, now she wants an iPhone because "it's touch it won't be as rough on my hands." Annie, a smarter move would be to just not send so many text messages. But hey, I'm no doctor. Crazy teenagers. [ABC News via CNET via TUAW]

I don't see how sending 4000 text messages a month makes this girl dumb or stupid..

I'm detecting a bit of hostility from the commenters, maybe because they don't have enough friends or people that actually want to communicate with them to send 4K texts a month. Sorry guys, some people actually have friends and like to text them..
