A MUM sending the same message via five different platforms is perfectly aware that they all goes to her daughter’s one phone, she has confirmed.
Nikki Hollis copies and pastes every message she sends her three kids across every single service, just to make sure there is no escape from their relentlessly buzzing phones.
Daughter Emma Hollis said: “At first we thought mum might think all the messages go to different places, or platforms we check at different times, and she was somehow increasing the likelihood of us reading them by bombarding us.
“But when we sat her down to teach her how a phone works, it turned out she already knew. She’s just doing it for dramatic effect.
“It happened when I was in a job interview the other day. We sat in silence as a cascade of chimes, dings, burbles and clangs went on for a minute. I didn’t get the job. The message was: ‘good luck’.”
Nikki Hollis said: “Of course I knew. I’m not an idiot.
“I just like making an entrance. And too bloody right should their phone make the most massive fuss possible whenever I get in touch. I’m their mother.”
