Take a break and enjoy the ticket this little boy issued to his phone-addicted Mam
It came with a pretty hefty fine…

A STUDY RECENTLY found people on average check their smartphones 85 times a day.

We all do it, and could all probably be doing much more productive and enlightening things with our time (unless you’re reading – please keep doing that).

One little boy thinks his Mam should be using some of that time to hang with him.

He issued her with a “ticket” for being on her phone “most of the time” and for “not being with me a lot”.

The fine? $112,938,784,657,394,871,217.

The photo was shared on Reddit by the little boy’s father and we’d imagine his wife is going to cut down her smartphone time unless she wants her bank balance drained by another fine.
