Day 21 – A picture of your cell phone

remember when I said my phone is a piece of junk?

.no there is not an app for that.

many times a day and hundreds of times a month people say to me one of the following phrases:

“OH MY LORD, what happened to your phone?”

“You should have a case for that”

“Looks like your phone has seen better days?”

“Dang girl what on earth did you do to your cell phone?”

“Doesn’t that screen bother you?”

“Whoa…you still have that cracked phone?”

“Oh Michelle, you broke another iPhone?”

“Why don’t you just get a Motorola razor or something cheap like that?”

“Do you like slice your fingers open every day on that phone?”

“Why don’t you just get the new iPhone 4?”

“You so ghetto girl, fo real!”

 

And, well, the list goes on and on and on and just when I think I have heard all I can hear about the phone someone mentions it to me again. Well, newsflash, I actually use the phone every day. No, I don’t want to have a cracked piece of junk phone but thanks to some a$$hole at the Avalanche game, I no longer have my iPhone4, so yes I did have the new phone, then someone stole it and I had to go back to the old phone. The old, cracked phone that has served as the number one icebreaker known to man. Everyone has a comment and a great idea and a question. Well today I am coming forward and saying I am sick of all your stupid questions. So here are my answers, and please don’t ask me anymore. 🙂

“OH MY LORD, what happened to your phone?” ~ Ummm What do you think happened to my phone, I dropped it about 100 times. Duh.

“You should have a case for that” ~ Well would’t that just have been a great idea…How about I did have a case on it.

“Looks like your phone has seen better days?” ~ You think?

“Dang girl what on earth did you do to your cell phone?” ~ I dropped it. What on earth do you think I did to my cell phone?

“Doesn’t that screen bother you?” ~ Apparently not as much as it is bothering you, and for the record no it doesn’t bother me…well not anymore.

“Whoa…you still have that cracked phone?” ~ Yep, as you can see by the fact that I am using the phone right in front of your face. Dang, anything else?

“Oh Michelle, you broke another iPhone?” ~ Well, actually I have just broke this phone 100 times, so no its not another phone its the same old piece of junk.

“Why don’t you just get a Motorola razor or something cheap like that?” ~ Because that would be ghetto.

“Do you like slice your fingers open every day on that phone?” ~ Do you see any cuts on my fingers? Do you see any band aids?

“Why don’t you just get the new iPhone 4?” ~ Remember I had it and some douche stole it? Why don’t you just go ahead and ask me if I want to face time and rub it in a little more?

“You so ghetto girl, fo real!” ~ Tell me something I don’t know. winning.

So here I am answering all your lingering questions about why I have a cracked phone and why I will have one the next time you see me. Unless anyone is interested in handing over $600 for a new phone ( yeah that’s the price if you are not eligible for an upgrade) didn’t think so.  Please, please, please stop with the questions and just embrace it.

Because I am willing to bet, to all my iphone brothers and sisters out there, that if we both leave our phones on a table in a bar I will get mine back and well, yours will be history. sorry.

    Life could be worse. You could have my phone. I mean my nokia brick is pretty sweet. From what I have learned from the Wire about police technology they are unable to trace shitty nokias, or burners. It’s also got snake and a calculator and can store 244 contacts AND seems to be unbreakable. It is like 1000 for 1000 on falling and not breaking.

    I would make due with a broken iphone, if only I could get my hands on one. Those fucking things are impossible to find. I think you should embrace your phone’s uniqueness cause there are things you can do with a broken iphone that you can’t do with one of those shitty unbroken ones. You can break the proverbial ice, which you already pointed out, you can defend yourself with the shards of glass, and you can now drop it sin preocupando.

    Also, I expect a gift via snail mail.

  2. While i have not noticed your cracked fingers i have come up with another hypothesis for the damage the cracks are causing you and the prevention of buying a new phone (because a phone that looks like that can not come without side effects, at least not for a cracka)… All the cracks are harboring bits of bacteria, which is leading to the build up of clogged pores on your face and therefore causing you to spend hundreds of dollars on one dollar, second hand facemasks from albertsons

    Good karma says that you calling & giving that iPhone back @ the Hornet means that you’ll be rewarded handsomely soon! I just know it.
