Tears began to flow
I know, I know, I have such an expensive phone I really shouldn't, but I do. Well, when I sit in the car I like something in between my legs- if my phone vibrates I can feel it. I don't have to go fumbling through my pocket causing a greater distraction. And today I paid the price- I had the phone in between my legs, scooted out to get out of the car, and the phone went with me. I hear a thud on the dirt (we have a dirt driveway), and I look down to see my iPhone's beautiful phone screen shattered in a million pieces. My heart sank and the tears started flowing instantly. I am so hurt!!! I can't afford a new phone at this time. I texted The Guy to see if by chance he had a spare. Not the best idea when you ended up with some crystal chips in your finger. He did have a spare at one time. Nope. I scoured ebay and found that most iPhones are $199+++ USED. I have 4-5 that are up for auction on ebay in mind to replace mine- all have slight defects, but for a couple months I can handle it. Spending that sort of money would be a stretch, especially because I'm saving up quite a bit for when I'm not working next year and am student teaching. I have money set aside for the new phone, but I really don't want to put it out for a replacement for this broken one right now. Oh well, that's life, and that's what I get for this. I do know I'm going to buy a much heavier super duty case than I had before. And can you say sad that I cried over a piece of technology? LOL!
