Deadly Cell Phone Text Ad

We all hate spam, but this particular text message advertisement from a debt management company turned out to be deadly:

A text advert from a debt management company may have led to a young man's death, an inquest heard.

Distracted John Daglish, 22, walked into the path of a car, seconds after receiving the message.

His mobile phone, which had been in his hand when he was struck, was found smashed on the carriageway beside him. His family revealed the text that flashed on his phone was an unsolicited ad from a debt company.

Something makes me think the Daily mail has a lot of toner.

Yes I understand, and I think you are stupid in blaming them.

This guy was reading his text message and stepped out (not paying attention). . . so, had he been returning from his mailbox and glancing thru his mail (not paying attention) when we was struck, would the article about his death be implying that his death was a result of the USPS? C'mon.....
