Worst day ever

Remember when we bought all that music at the auction? Well, a terrible thing happened to Lloyd when we unloaded it at school: as he was getting out of my truck, he dropped his iPhone.

This was indeed a tragedy, not for the loss of function since it’s the backside that cracked; but for the loss of beauty. When he first got it he bought a case for it but didn’t like how bulky it was, so he took it off and would positively rave about the phone’s coolness:

Lloyd: “Isn’t it cool? Isn’t it soooo much cooler without a case? Seriously – look at it. It’s so cool.”

Lauren (groggily): “What the?? What time is it? Is it midnight?!? I have to work in the morning, mister!”

Well, Lloyd, looks like you’ll be wrapping it in bubble wrap now.

So many little cracks.

Decidedly uncool.

    My condolences, Lloyd.

    Have you tried a piece of clear packing tape? I hear that holds shattered camera screens together forever.

    Talk to Apple; tell them you have a small business and find your phone and iMac invaluable. I’ve heard that they lurve small businesses -- especially those that use Apple products. The daughter of a co-worker has a photography studio and uses Apple. When she dropped her iPhone and took it in, they fixed her phone for FREE.

    It’s worth a try.

      Instead of buying a case and screen protectors, I bought insurance for the phone. The deductible is $50.00 so I don’t know if I want to send it in for what is really a small crack on the back of the phone.

    Dang. After I broke the camera screen, I was afraid to keep it in my pocket. I thought it might cut me every time I put my hand in my pocket.

    Now you would think that with all the high end technology in that phone, they could come up with a non-cracking, non-breakable outside wouldn’t ‘ya?

    Maybe Apple should team up with Corelle.

    (sorry Lloyd 🙁 )

    What are you doing with all that music?

    That shattered more than a corner of my heart! However, what better reason for waiting patiently for iPhone 5!
