That is so awful... but really hilarious. Definitely something that would have happened to me. I don't have a text messaging plan either, and yet people text me alllllll the time. I usually have to pay $5-10 extra a month for stuff I can't control.
Call customer care and tell them to put a texting block on your phone. That's the only way to stop it. You can't get a credit for the amount you pay every month since it is a recurring charge, and you are aware of it. Text opt out doesn't cost you anything. (I work for AT&T's customer care so that's how I know.)
I agree sending your boss a bill for not only the text message, but your time as well. I also do not think that you can be fired via text. I am pretty sure since you do not have a text messaging plan you could still come in to work and receive that last extra day of pay, since you "never got the message".
