Iowans Have Damaged Their Phones in Some Hilarious Ways
This week we started up a conversation on all the crazy ways your phone has been broken or stolen, and some of the results were pretty shocking!
Last week, my best friend back in Michigan called me to vent about her bad week. One of the reasons her week was so bad? Somebody stole her phone! She ran into a gas station to use the bathroom really quick, and when she went up to the register afterwards, she realized that she had left her iPhone in there. She went back to grab it maybe two minutes later, and it was GONE. She watched the security camera footage, and sure enough, a man walked out of the bathroom and stuck her phone in his pocket. Luckily, she was able to deactivate the phone pretty quickly, which means he couldn't do much with it, but it was still (obviously) a frustrating experience.
I've never had my phone stolen, but I have broken some phones in some very stupid ways. I once put one through the washing machine after throwing in the hoodie I was wearing, and another time I threw one in my purse with a leaking bottle of soda. My parents were not happy with me. It's nice to know I'm not alone, though! We asked you to tell us how your phone was broken or stolen, and we got some great responses. Here are some of our favorites:
