My phone just committed suicide! I know it’s been ailing but every time it croaked, I took it to the doctors to get it all patched up and working ok again. I knew it was in trouble, all the signs were there. I knew that my phone was depressed because every once in a while it would hang and refuse to work. But you know you could hit the reset or just take out the batteries, recharge it and it would be back to work again, so I wasn’t really worrying too much about that.
Today though I guess it reached the end of its patience. It has been in service long enough. It has seen me through heaven and hell. It has held my hand in the dark, lighted my way through dark alleys. It kept me company through the long nights, playing me songs and ruminating through memories as we checked out the pictures we have taken over the years.
I don’t know what I would do without my phone. I mean how would I know what time it is when I wake up in the middle of the night? or keep track of my appointments? I don’t even remember any of the phone numbers I regularly used cause I figured it was all stored in there anyway.
It breaks my heart to admit that it had reached the end of its rope. It must have, right?I mean why else would it consider doing any of the following?
And then to actually choose to dive bomb into a bucket of water right out of my hands????
Who does that? Who in their right mind dives into a bucket of water and proceeds to sink right to the bottom, messing up their screen with pools of water floating around inside it? And then that water finds it way into the inners and it just completely short-circuits everything. Now nothing works. I have tried emergency CPR. I have shaken it vigorously to try to get out as much water as possible. But I guess it was too little, too late. Its gone.
Now I know the fastest way to get over anything is to get moving. Only now I need to figure out which newer model I should get next
without sounding like a total idiot at the store tomorrow.
p.s. If you a self-styled Phone guru, leave me a suggestion below on which phone to get next. Or you can simply tell me which phone model you use and why I should buy the same 😉
p.p.s. Its functionality over beauty for me. I don’t care what the phone looks like as long as I can call, text and listen to music.
