I'm not sure exactly where to post this, but here goes. We have an agreement with our son that he is to call (or text message if it's past 11:30 pm) if he's not going to be in by 2:00 am, his curfew. A couple of months ago, he spent the night at a friend's house, and, for the first time, I didn't receive a text message. He lost his allowance for that day, also as per our agrement, since he said he had deleted his outgoing message box and couldn't prove to me that he actually sent a message. The next time, he sent me five copies of a text message letting me know he wasn't going to be home. Last night, I received a text message at 11:30 letting me know that he'd be home by 2:00 am, but he didn't show up all night. This morning when he came in, he again insisted that he had sent me a second message but also admitted that the first time this happened a couple of months back, he had lied about the messsage and had actually fallen asleep. More likely, he was at a party and didn't want to bother. However, THIS time, he came and showed me the message he had sent me in his outbox. Yet, I never received that second message, and I'm wracking my brain, trying to figure out why and/or how this happened. When he showed me the message in his outbox, the date and time were right, and the number the text message went to was mine. The status option also confirmed that the message was sent. My gut feeling tells me that he was probably partying again, and, in the months between the first time he lied and last night, some clever techie type showed him how to outwit his cell phone sim card. I can't think how, though. Even though he admitted to lying a couple of months ago, because of the "proof" he was showing me, I gave him the benefit of the doubt this time, but I still feel as though I'm being snowed. Does anyone have a clue if it's possible to do this? PS I know this sounds really petty compared to the much more serious problems many of you are having (and I have had off on and on as well), but this is making me crazy.
