I’m currently sitting at work wondering where I put my cell phone. The office we visited this morning says they can’t find it. FUN! Hmm.
This made me go take a quick trip down memory lane. I thought “I’ve never done something like this with a phone before!” – But then quickly realized that was a lie.
Things I Have Done to My Cell Phones
- Dropped it into the toilet – Yes, I had to stick my hand into the water of a public high school toilet, but at least the water was flushed. It still worked after a day and a half of drying, but sporadically.
- Driven over it – I was visiting my old college, met up with a friend, and basically convinced him to hang out with me longer to help me look for my phone. In my backtracking, we found it smushed in the parking lot. At least I didn’t run over a squirrel?
- Lost it on BART – Uneventful, except that Verizon confirmed someone made a twenty-minute phone call from my phone well after it had slipped out of my pocket. I use up about twenty minutes of calling time a month, so that was clearly a sign I wouldn’t be getting it back.
Seriously, Phone, we’re hosting Thanksgiving tomorrow night and it’s my mobile number that’s listed on the Evite. Where did you go??
