WHY DO BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE

Last posted Jun 15, 2013 at 06:00PM EDT. Added Jun 13, 2013 at 07:06AM EDT

My old phone died recently, and since I’m an adult I have to get my own phone plan now. I decided I needed an iPhone.

I get my new phone, it’s amazing, everything I could ever want in a new phone. I think I’ve had for about a week now? Maybe 2 weeks.

Anyway, last night I went over to my Grandmother’s house to babysit the animals. I also brought some of my laundry with me to do while I was over there. I got downstairs put in on my clothes (plus the pants I was currently wearing) and turn on the washer, easy peasy. I come back upstairs and I can’t find my phone. THEN I REALIZE I left it in the back pocket of the pants I’m washing. IT WAS SOAKED AND I WAS UNHAPPY FOREVER.
So far the home button is the only thing not working, idk how bad it really is. It’s been sitting in rice all night.

So that’s the tragic story called my life.

Haha I am a dumbass

Why would anyone be stupid enough to buy an iPhone?

I’m sorry but that’s really your own fault… :P

This incident really has nothing to do with type of phone it is. I just felt like pointing out that aspect of my story. The same thing could’ve have happened even if I got an android.

Guess what, your opinion isn’t something that matters to me what-so-ever. I’m happy with my phone, and what you have to say about iPhones and apple products doesn’t have an impact on my choice.

I am not stupid for buying this phone.

Maybe a bit stupid for throwing it in with my laundry though.

I personally never could take into the appeal of Smart Phones.

Everyone’s done it. Don’t feel too bad. If you just bought it, take it to the Apple Store and see if they can replace the button. It may be water damaged, but it should still be replaceable and you pay for it. Or maybe not. It depends if they check for water damage.

Despite my shiggy diggy-ing, worry not, I too have made that mistake. A few years ago I left my MP3 player in a trouser pocket and it got washed.

Bad things happen to good people either as a simple random circumstance, or because God is a master troll and thinks it’s hilarious.

If rice doesn’t work, have it replaced at an Apple store. They’ll usually give you a new phone without too much hassle.

I put my iPod Touch in my trumpet case once and it got soaked in valve oil. Home button’s kind of wonky sometimes but it works fine two years after that happened.

I’m sorry, but the appeal operates on a no-poorfags policy.

I know that feel, bro.

I’m lucky; I have a lame phone that wouldn’t be an issue if it broke.

Because I don’t need a phone with all kinds of fancy features.

Because I never get calls.

…I’m just lucky I guess…

The “phone” portion of the word “smartphone” is a bit of a misnomer. Smartphones are not the evolution of the phone; smartphones are the successors to the personal digital assistants of yesteryear.
Think of them as a personal computer in your pocket. They can do almost everything a laptop can do, but quicker and more efficiently. The tradeoff is screen real estate and the inability to run your favorite desktop apps and games made specifically for keyboard and mouse input.

Bitch please, I have a phone, I have registered phone numbers from my friends from the last day of school.

Guess what happens? Nothing. I never get called, never texted “how u doin’”, and the only calls I get are from my parents or siblings.

You’re lucky, you know you’re alone. Having friends who never call you hurts like a bitch way more than being alone. I should sympathize with you, we’re probably two of a kind now.

EDIT: Remind me to remember what the phrase “plot hole” and the word “repetitive” mean.

Anyone who buys an apple phone supports child labor.

Why is the screen so small? I mean do you have to have like needle dick fingers to be able to touch anything on the screen? Whoa whoa whoa whoa, what the fuck are those strange markings under the screen? I don’t like this I DON’T LIKE THIS!

Moargun, I’m sorry to inform you that there are no good people. (And personal experience has told me that there may be no good phones, either.)

“Hang on, I’m getting another call…” BANG

“Hello? Brucker? You still there?”

back to topic

I’m getting my first smart phone soon (a Samsung Galaxy, which is an Android). I dropped my first cell phone ever into a puddle. You just know my first phone I paid over $100 for is going to end up with a similar fate. I don’t believe in Karma; I do believe in irony.
