|"I feel your pain, Aaron Rodgers."|
- people constantly ask you how your name's spelled even though it's a very common name because people are stupid and can't quite figure out that a word can begin with two A's.
- pocket dialing.
I like to consider myself a fairly average Aaron. I get about 1 errant text per month, or about 12 errant texts per year. Some Aarons have unlimited texting and others don't have cell phones, so I'll assume only 10% of Aarons pay for texts. Judging by my Facebook friend list, about 1 in 200 or roughly 1.5 million Americans are named "Aaron". This means the total money spent by Aarons for pocket texting is
(10%) · ( 1.5×106 Aarons ) · (12 texts per year per Aaron) · (10¢ per text)
That's $180,000—four times what the average high school teacher makes—given to cell phone companies by Aarons because of pocket dialing.
