Rest in Piece(s) my Phone

So I ran over my iPhone 5c with a lawn mower this afternoon.It fell out of my pocket where I hadn't mowed, didn't notice, and shredded it. It is now in multiple pieces, and pretty sure the battery is leaking too. Ironically enough, my 2 year contract ends in 4 days. Also had a iPhone 5s just laying around so am now using that in the meantime.. That's the first time I'd ever broke that phone too. Pretty smart of me to run it over I might add.

Okay..

  1. What pocket was it in?
  2. How did it fall out?
  3. How did you not see it?
  4. Am I just too careful with my phone? xD

1) Left pocket. 2) Was wearing athletic shorts, so smaller pockets and more slippery. 3) It fell to the left, which was unmowed grass. Didn't look down when I came back around. 4) No, you can never be too careful, I lasted my 5c for two years :D

Well that just sucks in general. If that happened to my phone, I'd be in all sorts of angry saying how many things I've done just to keep it the way it is xD

Seriously, I'm still on iOS 8.4 and terrified to update ANYTHING

Rip Siri

She never actually told me what I wanted, but when I told her I loved her, she rejected me.

So I ran her over with a lawn mower

Otterbox, got it the day I got my phone, lasted 2 years. Much respect towards Otterbox now lol.. I should send them an email saying that their case failed to protect my phone.

It was my Grandpas before he passed, we've just had it sitting around because no one had a use for it.

I most likely will revert to Android (i.e. probly S7) just because they've stepped up their game hardware wise and they're so much more flexible. Although I will miss jailbreak probly. Haven't quite decided.

That was what happened tome before I got my SE112's

Those earbuds fit amazingly for me. You would be surprised at how much a good fit can help block noise.
