I suck at handling tech toys. Phones, MP3 players, laptops – I break them all. It’s almost a talent, what I do to all things tech.
So when I got the iPhone 3GS almost two years ago, everyone said it was just a matter of time before it had to be replaced. They were right, of course. Thankfully, it wasn’t my fault. The phone had issues since I got it, and eventually it became too much for me to deal with. So I took it to the Apple store and they replaced it.
About six months later, however, there was a small accident. I was texting away while on a ghost tour, and I didn’t pay attention when I tried to put it back in my pocket. And so it fell and hit the floor. Now, this had happened before and the phone had been okay, but this time, it fell directly onto the screen and landed on a few pebbles.
Not only did we watch it fall, we heard the glass shatter.
