How To Completely Destroy a Cell Phone

I may not be the most gifted person to ever walk the earth but I am most certainly the clumsiest.  Allow me to illustrate my point.  I have already mentioned the nasty little stomach virus that came to help me flush in the New Year.  When it hit me last Wenesday, I was out shopping with my sons, giving them an opportunity to spend some of their Christmas money.  Needless to say we left Gamestop in a really big hurry.   When we arrived home I grabbed my purse, cell phone and keys and RAN to the door to unlock it.  Sadly, this was when my Razor fell and landed on the threshold, knocking one of the hinges off of my new phone and leaving some of the phone's wiring exposed.  Not good news.  I came to the conclusion that the piece I broke off was not going to magically "snap" back into place when my husband tried to do just that which then caused the outer screen to go black.  No more caller ID for me.  Now, in view of the fact that we are STILL waiting for our house to sell in Florida, it is not a good time to be shelling out money for a new phone.  This WAS a new phone that came free with my new contract and, oddly enough, was the replacement for the LAST phone I dropped and broke.  Hmmmm....there is a pattern here.  Not to worry...my wonderful sister-in-law had a phone that she was no longer using so yesterday we headed over to get it from her and get it activated.  The plot thickens.  As I am headed out the door to go to her house, I DROP MY BROKEN PHONE AGAIN!!! This time it snaps completely in two and gives up the ghost entirely.  Dead.  I have now killed two phones.  When will this madness stop???  Is there some sort of twelve-step recovery program for people like me?

Freud would tell you that the cell phone breakage is truly your unconscious speaking. You, as the introspective person that you are, do not wish to communicate with others as frequently as you do, so therefore you are systematically eliminating your methods of communications. Be careful around the house phone as it is next. Also tell Eddie to be wary in bed as you might accidentally elbow him in the mouth, thus knocking out his teeth. On the hand you just might be a klutz for which there is no 12 step program.

If you find a 12 step program let me know. I am on my 5th phone in 2 years. I even fried one in the sun. Who knew you could do that.

I say buy the warranty. We bought the warranty on our latest phone last year and I have dropped it many many times and have yet to brake it. Although if it did I would have a free new phone! ha!
