Soaring Through the World

Thursday, February 9, 2012

I am so angry with myself.  I didn't check my coat pockets after I took the trash out.  I had checked them beforehand.  I then pretreated my coat, didn't feel or hear a clunk of my cell phone while I was doing that.  I put the coat in the washer and proceeded toward my treadmill.  Self said, "Where's your phone?"  I answered me, "I don't see it."  I used my land phone to find it; I didn't hear anything.  I hung up that phone, stopped the washer, then took my coat out of the washer, and saw my cell phone floating!  Again self speaks to me, "STUPID, STUPID, STUPID!"  I took the cell phone out, took out the  battery and SIM card, dried both.  I went on-line and read the instructions on what to do when one's cell phone ends up in water.  I followed it up to the step of putting the phone in uncooked rice.  Here's hoping that the cell phone fairy is good to me and helps the rice suck out the water and that I don't have to replace my cell phone.

Well, well, well. Rice. I'd never have thought of that. I've never washed a phone although a toilet pan once claimed one (fell from pocket). I hope it still works. I shall keep reading posts to find out!

Well, it's been two and a half days and my phone is still not completely dry. So I'm going to AT&T tomorrow and see what damage that will do to my finances. :(
