Members of an Egyptian family have been using paper and pencils for communications for 11 years after the head of the family found a listening device in their apartment, local media reported on Monday.
The bug was apparently installed by Muhammad's first wife.
The man moved to a new apartment after that but the bugs moved with him and the family decided to use notes for communication when at home.
Muhammad's six-year-old daughter had to learn to write early.
After eleven years, they got sick and tired of writing letters to each other and turned for help to specialists only when Muhammad's ex-wife died.
The family was shocked when they learned that the bug was fake and never worked.
