9. I think this is
quite humorous - but something doesn't add up! The numbers just seem out of wack!

Over 400 calls totaling $12,000 in calls during a 48 hour period?

The article says most calls were 3 minutes long with some as much as 10 minutes.

400 divided by 48 = 8.3 calls per hour.

60 minutes divided by 8.3 calls = 7.2 minutes per call.

$12,000 divided by 400 = $30 per call.

Now I know some people like to yak on the phone non-stop by seriously something isn't right here.
