And Just Like That, I Lost My Broken Phone Virginity

Well friends, the days of me being the "I've never broken a phone" queen are now over with. The whole virginity was lost in about .03 milliseconds, which is approximately .01 milliseconds faster than when I got married. It turns out when you drop your phone on Saturday and break the outside case, you should immediately replace it with a new case so that when you drop it on Monday it won't be so dramatic and glass shardy all over the patio concrete. While I didn't cry over the loss of my once LED/HD/whatever makes it so clear and bright screen, I did wince inside a wee bit when realizing I would have to tell my husband what just happened. He has this thing where he likes to say "I am not responsible with my stuff." In my mind, responsible is another word for boring. Who has time to be responsible when there are giant jelly beans to be eaten and sunshine to soak up? [which is exactly where I was headed until my phone decided to just up and jump out of my hands like a freaking toddler who wet their pants].


Anyhow, all life shattering events must be documented on the ole blog so here we have it.

I have to go run now and and then drown myself in wine while I daydream about how I can convince my husband that I NEED the best phone out there and not his hand me down leftovers that are sitting in the storage room. 

Youngest children, I feel for you in this moment.

  1. Ugghh! Husbands!! Mine made me keep my cracked one for almost a year!! It wasn't as bad as yours but, there was absolutely no budging on his part! The only reason I got a new one was because of an awesome good deal at Target & He got one too! LOL! Good luck! Will keep my fingers crossed Sean sees your point/side in this!! :)

  3. Oh man, I so relate! I had my shattered iPhone for almost a year! I only got a new one when our contracts were up, and we were eligible for new phones. I definitely learned how important a good case is!

  4. Wow, does your man share a brain with my man? Every time I drop my phone (same as yours by the way, yay for holding on to 4S's!), no matter where in the house or outside or whatever, Eric has super-sonic hearing and is always all WHAT WAS THAT? WAS THAT YOUR PHONE?! Ugh ... worst.

  5. I am so sorry your phone is shattered. I have yet to live through such a tragedy (knock on wood!). But also, this post was hilarious and I'm glad you've got a sense of humor of it; if my phone looked like that, I might actually cry.
    Good luck with the husband! If he makes you use a hand-me-down, just head outside with my jelly beans and throw the thing on the ground! :)

  6. I went almost a full year with my iPhone and no case for it. Until one day when I hopped out of the car and forgot it was on my lap. It hit the ground and I immediately knew it was broken :(

  7. You can replace the screen!! I shattered mine last summer and an computer repairman fixed mine in less than 4 hours :)

  8. This is my greatest fear. That's why I keep my precious baby wrapped tight in his otterbox and avert my eyes from all the more-cute-than-functional cases taunting me I'm every store.

  9. Ick. So sorry to hear you broke your phone. I'm not going to jinx myself by writing anything with my phone experience. But I sell all of my old phones. That way in case something happens I'll only have the option of getting a new one.

  10. I broke mine on the kitchen floor and knew it almost immediately. It's the worst!

  11. I've never broken my iPhone even though I've dropped it several times. I think this is just the perfect excuse to get a new phone!

  12. So listen to what I did. I had to swap my phone out because there was a problem with the camera last Thursday. Last night, I fell down, jammed my thumb (still swollen and stiff), and SHATTERED MY BRAND NEW PHONE. I had to go back to the store today, and pay to get it fixed. I'm a freaking idiot. An expensive lesson to learn...

  13. Oh boy, eek, I really hope you get a new great one!

  14. What a bummer!! I dropped my phone and few months ago and been using a cracked up phone since then. Gheeetttto, I know! Just contemplating switching carriers and have to make up my mind.

  15. Yikes! So far I haven't popped my iPhone breaking cherry and I plan not to for a very long time. I'm a prude, what can I say.

  16. Yikes! I need mine to last until at least June so I have been carrying it more carefully than some mothers carry their children. Best of luck convincing the husband to give you nice things.

  17. Oh I have been there and done that! And had to do the walk of shame to tell my husband. For some reason I kept that shattered phone in a drawer somewhere for the last 2 years, and it worked out reallllllly nice when my husband lost his iphone last week and decided to use my shattered phone as his new one, he also put a big dent in our new car this week. Everyone is irresponsible sometimes ;-) and this week has been a good week for me to rub that in his face!! ;-)

  18. If it makes you feel any better, that's exactly what my phone currently looks like. And also what my phone before this phone looked like. On the plus side, it's a great conversation piece. "Oh, what happened to your phone?" "This thing? This is an exclusive upgrade I sprung for!". Works every time.

  20. This is so weird. My phone fell off of my dresser first thing Monday morning and my screen shattered too. OF COURSE this would happen exactly 1 day after complaining to my boyfriend about how he needs to be more careful with his phone and bitching about how many times he has cracked his screen.
    %&^*!

  21. Gahh, this is my life. I slapped a phone case over my broken screen. Seems like a small price to pay when it compares to telling my husband I broke my screen after constantly nagging him about how often he breaks his.

  22. My phone is cracked because I chose to save a REALLY GOOD bagel from falling to the pavement instead of it. But now it's deteriorating internally all by itself... touche.

  23. I broke my phone months ago and Im still using it... it breaks my heart lol I wish someone had leftover phones in storage bc I just cant make myself spend that much money on a new phone.

  24. Your email number is giving me anxiety. Almost more than looking at the poor, cracked phone!

  25. Oh goodness. I often fear for this to happen to me since I'm just a clumsy girl, but instead of breaking the glass I've apparently broken my power button. It's a known issue with my version of iPhone, but that doesn't make it any better. I was completely freaking out until I found ways to lock my phone and turn it off (and back on again) when it needed a reboot.

    Good luck with the new phone negotiations!

  26. When I finally convinced my husband to get me a new phone after 3 years of my old iPhone that would randomly FaceTime inappropriate people at inappropriate moments he started with the line of why don't I get a new phone and you can have my old one? It took me a while but that idea was eventually thrown out of the window and a shiny, sparkly, brand new iPhone 5s was mine, all mine! I skipped out of the shop in heaven!! I hope your phone negotiations go the same way!

  27. You poor thing! You absolutely deserve the best phone out there ;) It's just convenient that yours had to break. A shame, but you have to make the best out of the situation with a new phone ;)

I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
