    Talking Stupid things you have done with your cell phone

    So, I get a text from my girlfriend's daughter yesterday stating that her mom put her phone "in believe it or not the fireplace"... Wow...Just wow... So they get here and I ask what the hell she was thinking. Apparently she was sorting things to burn, got a text from me (hey, no blaming me!) and put her phone down on top of the burn pile. She keeps sorting, putting more stuff on top of the cell phone in the process before finally throwing it all in the fireplace. A few minutes later she starts looking for her phone, and can't find it. Her daughter, being a smartass, says maybe she put it in the fire, and it dawns on her...

    After a little poking around with the fire poker, she must have punctured the battery as it explodes in the fireplace

    Anyways, the end result

    When things are meant to go into the toilet there is nothing you can do about it. Bent over to lift the lid on the toilet and my brand new phone flies out of my shirt pocket. I managed to hit it away from the bowl, it hits the wall, bounces back, hits the rim, and in for 2. Knowing it cannot swim I go in after it. I did all I could to save it but in the end it drowned. Then I took a shower.

    Buying one was my first mistake..... I hate being that available to anybody after spending years being on call and having at least a pager as an umbilical cord. I keep one in the glove box of my pickup, turned off.

    Left my phone on top of my lightbar at the gas station. Forgot it when I peeled out to respond to an officer assist call two blocks up. Never saw it again.

    I lost it once in my gear in my cruiser. I was moving stuff from my POV to my cruiser and somewhere I lost the phone. I couldn't find it. I knew it was close by because I had my Bluetooth headset and it would connect to the phone. It was on vibrate so I couldn't hear it ring and it was buried enough I couldn't hear the vibrating. I had to drive to the other end of the parking lot and attempt to connect the headset to narrow down which car it was in. It took about 10 minutes of pulling everything out and searching through it before I finally found the phone.

    I moved here with Sprint and their coverage sucked even worse than it did where I used to live. I switched to Cingular (now AT&T.) Cingular was even worse. Every call I made for weeks was dropped until I began memorizing all the dead spots. Then my conversations revolved around hanging up and redialing when I knew I was going through the spots.

    One day my Cingular phone spontaneously shattered against the inside of my windshield. I took the pieces to Verizon and told the sales girl, "Another satisfied Cingular customer looking to switch carriers." They were actually able to hack my phone and pull the address book off for me.

    I've had Verizon longer than anything else at this point. In this area Verizon's network is far superior to anything else. I know because my phones have remained intact for much longer than any other carrier's.

    That which does not kill me, better start fucking running.

    Thereís a promise I need you to make
    While Iím gone you take care of the love
    And Iíll deal with the hate.

    Donít worry about me; Iíll be all right
    Just care for your children and sleep tight
    Iíll keep you safe on my watch tonight

    Went fishing with my Dad once. i left my phone in the truck because we had no service at the back woods lake. I take the boat across to the campsite while my Dad drives around to meet me. When we meet up, he hands me my phone and says "You forgot this") We head out in the boat, he leans back in his chair, (the same way I'm leaning forward!) His chair breaks, he goes ass over tea kettle into the drink and I do a face plant into said lake! He comes up making some of the most God-awful sounds, I think he is drowning(he is 77 yoa) I'm tangled in fishing poles and anchor rope. I get him to the boat and drag the boat into shore so I can stand up. As I am bailing water from the boat, my leg starts to madly vibrate! My phone in it's death throes! We were able to save them later but what a pain. We both lost our glasses to the murky deep.
    Any day above ground is a fine day indeed!
