The One Where My iPhone Luck Runs Out

I've rocked the iPhone since 2009.  I put off getting one for a few years, because I am never really the type to rush out and buy the newest gadget on the shelves.  However, since buying one and becoming an iPhoner, I can't imagine having a different phone, as materialistic as that may sound.

I've had relatively good luck with iPhones.  I know so many people who've shattered multiple screens, spilled something on their phones, lost their phones, or gotten them stolen not once but multiple times.  I always felt pretty proud that a scatter-brain like myself managed to dodge a lot of iPhone killing bullets!  (Okay, there was one time where my iPhone fell into the toilet and may or may not have stayed there for like thirty minutes before I realized it.  One time!)

That is, until this week, when my pretty and not even a year old iPhone 5 went from perfect to this in a split second launch from my waistband:

Not having access to a cell phone is not an option for me, being that I need to be accessible for work, and I'm 33 weeks pregnant.  So off to the AT&T store we found ourselves, and $150 later (I'm really in baby mode, because I all I kept thinking was how many different baby items we still need that I could have bought with that), I was the reluctant owner of a brand-new iPhone C in white.

Reluctant because I just wanted to keep my own damn phone!  I didn't want to spend the money on a new phone I don't even really like the look of (no offense, but the 5C looks like a toy)!  I didn't want to spend the money on a phone at all when we have so many other purchases I'd rather be making!  I didn't want to deal with this!

Before heading down the road of a full-blown meltdown about the phone situation, my sweet and much more level-headed and easy-going Handsome Husband reminded me that shit happens, and that it's not the end of the world.

And then I remembered what a #firstworldproblem my iPhone catastrophe was, and how lucky I am to have a man who can remind me of that.

Ohhhhhh man, those days are the worst! My husband goes through phones like candy (and even with insurance the deductible is $200!!!). I've broken every one I've had (I'm on #3, but thankfully, I've gotten a good 3 years out of each one before I've managed to break them. I'm totally with you on the $$ thing, though. Every time we have to spend money, all I can think about is what I COULD buy with that for the baby instead.

Good thing your husband was there to comfort you and remind you of what really matters in life. However, it’s still unfortunate to see what happened to your phone and the cost you had to pay to buy a new one. Well those things really happen. I guess you just have to be more careful next time.
