About that replacement phone…can someone say, “OOPS!”



I have that coffee mug. I’m drinking out of right now. suits me for how this week is going.**

The insurance covered a new phone. I’ve got it right here beside me. Sitting tweeting me occasionally, letting me know ’s .

I was able get most everything restored on the phone, thank you, google. And yes, even got a new passcode on .

But ’s on life support. Yes, tweets that I’ve got a or phone , but I can’t do anything about . The screen is black.

’s not its fault. It’s mine. I didn’t have it for even one day and I dropped it. Tripped on a rock in the backyard and it fell out of the pocket on my robe onto the rocks with a hard crash. I didn’t have a protective case for it yet. It was evening. I didn't see the rock. I was chasing my cat to get him inside.

So for the second time in a week I was at the phone store yesterday.

And on the phone with the insurance company for the phone. And exchanging emails with the insurance company. And resending emails with the insurance company after three phone calls.

Still can’t get the phone without the hubs’ ID because he’s the primary on the account.

Two claims in one week on the phone…shit, I’d be suspicious if I were them too! But, it’s true. It’s what happened.

Been a helluva week.

I wish more people would get more political incorrect or as I would say ,Tell it like it is,
we have gotten to a point some times not sure what to say, I am frfom the south and if it stinks, I say it like it is...

So sorry about your losses, It is hassle to get one replaced and all the stuff back in it..
Id does look like you got it under control, I know the protective case makes them bulky but they do work...just saying.....

Life happens.

None of us are exactly Olympic Gymnasts when it comes to navigating the slightest unseen object when we get a wee bit long in the tooth. Also it happens to folks of all types & age groups so wouldn't be so hard on yourself for the little mishap. Things happen in waves you're just on a bit of a bumpy one at the moment so I'm assuming you'll get by with your usual mixture of savvy & persistence. Look on the bright side this phase gives you more material for we the viewers who enjoy your reading your blogs. That said I do hope you get it all sorted out with the minimum of fuss.

But to be truthful, there may have been some wine involved, too! But, it is amazing how much these little tech beasts have invaded our world! I'm just about ready to have a flip phone instead!

This might be why I get the phone AND the protective case at the same time.

But I DO like the idea of you roaming around in the dark in just a robe, and look forward to hearing more, perhaps with pictures, when the situation allows.

Twice in a week? That does sound pretty bad and then some. Hope next week kind of makes up for it.

Hang in there darlin! I was gonna post that "Thow Shalt not walk and Text" but if the phone were in your pocket, and you had a lil wine in you, and the kitty was being elusive...well too many comma's and issues to deal with.
Hope your week gets better. I am dealing with a mouse infestation...may I borrow your pussy?

My phone decided to stop working last summer, fortunately I had everything written to cloud accounts. Funny how reliant we've become on the damn things though........I guess it won't be long before we're all using implants of some sort, then hopefully we won't need to worry about them being stolen, lost or broken.

You write very well McTin, a most enjoyable blog, and the pic's are very appealing at times too!

Hopefully the phone fiasco is past me now!!
Thank you so much McKilty for your kind words!! I've seen you comment on other blogs - so appreciate you stopping my way!
