    Bus driver fired for 38,000 text messages

    WARSAW, Poland - A Polish bus driver has been fired for sending 38,000 text messages on his company cell phone in a losing effort to win contest jackpot, a spokesman said Thursday.

    Leszek Wojcik, a bus driver in the northwestern Polish city of Slupsk, ran up a tab of some 94,000 zlotys ($34,000) with his text messages while trying to win a 100,000-zloty ($36,000) SMS contest that ended June 30, Slupsk city transport spokesman Hubert Boba told The Associated Press.

    Boba said a city bus drivers' monthly company phone bill is supposed to be limited to 15 zlotys ($5).

    Wojcik sent an average of 1,200 SMS text messages a day, each costing 2.40 zlotys ($0.86), on his work cell phone.

    Wojcik told TVN24 television he wanted to buy a second car with his possible winnings.

    "Now I'm without work," he said.
