New Phone

Posted by | February 27, 2003 | Uncategorized | 3 Comments

So, after its 32nd accidental drop in a year, I’ve upgraded my phone. The poor thing was barely able to keep all it’s broken bits together – the screen was grazed, the battery wobbled, and the next step up, a Nokia 6310i, was looking exceeedingly cheap. I waltzed in to Carphone Warehouse, and met Michelle’s friend the manager, angling for a cheap ‘mate’s rate’ deal. All manner of other phones were on offer, some probably better than the Nokia, but I refused, reminding them that I needed one that fitted my integrated carphone. Replacing that would cost another ?150, and spare money is not in abundance at the moment. So, after a while of comparing, we plumped for the one I originally wanted, and left the building. I was very pleased. I reached my car, jumped in, and slotted it into the carphone holder.
Which, unaccustomed to the new phone, promptly broke.

    It amazes me that someone as busy and popular as you has the time to keep a record of how many times they have dropped their mobile phone…

    You’re right, P, I am both busy and extremely popular. I keep a record of the amount of phone drops on the back of a small stamp which is kept in my right hand coat pocket.
