AP: A Polish bus driver has been fired for sending 38,000 text messages on his company cell phone in a losing effort to win contest jackpot, a spokesman said Thursday. Leszek Wojcik, a bus driver in the Polish city of Slupsk, ran up a tab of some $34,000 with his text messages while trying to win a $36,000 SMS contest that ended June 30.
Boba said a city bus drivers' monthly company phone bill is supposed to be limited to $5. Wojcik sent an average of 1,200 SMS text messages a day, each costing $0.86, on his work cell phone. Wojcik told TVN24 television he wanted to buy a second car with his possible winnings. "Now I'm without work," he said.
