Fun with technology

My family went to a community event this evening for a bit.  It was a fund raiser for a foundation that has been set up to honor the death of a boy from our town.  The event was a conglomeration of different things and among them, the announcement that a gentleman in our town had agreed to fund a $1,000 scholarship every year, in honor of this boy's short life.

This gentleman was not in attendance, having taken his son to the Ranger's game for his birthday.  The announcer explained the absence, asked everyone (about 400 people) to take out their cell phones, dictated a short text message and then called out the cell phone number of the gentleman and told everyone to hit 'send'.

Can you imagine the look on his face as he got 400+ text messages at the same time?

I sure hope he had unlimited texting.
