I’m obviously not very good at burying the lead. There’s the spoiler right there in the title!
I warned you that I was a wreck, but I told you I would share that side of myself with you too, not just the domestic put together side. My family and friends know just how destructive I can be, so I figured I might as well share witht he rest of my readers.
I was getting ready to leave for work yesterday. As I was getting into my car Mr. F was standing next to my driver’s side door saying goodbye. He looked at me and said, “I’m ordering you a phone case tonight.” To which I responded, “No, we don’t have the money right now. I promise I’ll be super careful.” He continued on by telling me how destructive and clumsy I am. I shrugged it off.
You see, I honestly have never been one to care about the “top of the line” phones. If I could call, text, and take pictures, I was happy. I only half-jokingly always ask Mr. F if I can just get a flip phone because some of these smart phones seem just so complicated and unnecessary.
Well long story short I jumped on the iphone bandwagon about a year and a half ago and enjoyed it much more than I had anticipated I would. So when it started to fail on me last week I was pretty upset. Mostly because I thrive on social interaction and we don’t have a house phone. We went to the store, dealt with a lot of bull from ATT and ultimately switched to Sprint (you’re welcome for the positive plug Spring), and I got the much sought after Iphone 6s in rose gold.
I love it! The camera is so much better, the screen is bigger, and I honestly just love a good change no matter what kind it is.
Anyway, back to the story… I left for work and when I got there I went in to use the restroom like I always do ebfore I start my shift. Before I even had a chance to pee (thank goodness) I heard a “plop,” and realized my brand new phone had been submerged in water.
I panicked, I hurried to pick it up and dry it off. I immediately turned it off to hopefully avoid a battery surge that could ultimately occur when using a water logged phone. I placed it in front of a small fan for SIX HOURS. I went SIX HOURS without my phone. The entire time I was panicking and telling anyone who would listen about the ironic events that had transpired.
The irony of course being that RIGHT before I left for work Mr. F had STRESSED that I would likely break my phone and I had PROMISED to be soooo careful. The irony was furthered by the fact that I had never gotten a top of the line phone until now, and here I was, sitting next to a phone that I was rotating in front of a fan. I wasn’t so much panicked because I was attached to my phone, but more because I couldn’t afford to buy a new one.
When I called Mr. F he thought I was joking. Like he seriously thought I was pulling his leg. and then I heard, “Seriously Madi?!”
Luckily when I turned my phone on 6 hours later it worked and all was well. What a relief. But you should have seen me during those hours. I am clearly not as put together as people seem to think. And I clearly am as destructive as they tell me I am..
Thank you Apple for creating a phone that can even withstand me.
