Being that I have a terrible habit of breaking my stuff, it should surprise no one that my poor iPhone finally had an unfortunate accident this morning. I was running and dropped it on the road. Naturally, it shattered. It shattered badly – so bad that when I tried to use it afterwards, shards of glass were coming off on my finger. Oh, I was so mad at & disappointed in myself. I had a decent case (the Speck Candy Shell), but it was no match for my klutziness. Here’s the damage (click to enlarge):
Anyways, I took it into the Apple Store and had it replaced at the $149 cost. Then, I spent another $80 on a LifeProof case. It’s weird to get used to having a case that completely encloses my phone. I went with that over the OtterBox because it’s also water proof and now I can 1) Take it swimming and 2) Instagram from the shower. You know, the important things in life.
Ugh. I ruin everything; this is why I can’t have nice things! Our Blu-Ray player actually also stopped working after only 2 years a few weeks ago – while I was trying to watch Veronica Mars. I wanted to replace that this month, but we’ll probably wait until August now. Stupid me! So far, my iPad and iPod have gone unbroken, so let’s hope it stays that way!
