21 March 2011
Went for the first outdoor bike ride of the year this past Saturday. A car came quickly out of a driveway right in front of me and I had to come to an abrupt stop. I did not have my pocket zipped closed and when I caught myself (and my bike) by getting one foot down fast, I kneed my phone right out of my jacket pocket.
It landed face-down on the pavement and came apart. I picked up all the pieces (including the pieces of glass from the touch screen and took it home. It still turned on, so I put the glass pieces back in, and covered it with packing tape...
I'm not close enough to the end of my phone contract to even think about getting another phone - I refuse to pay full price for one of these things.
