Lesson for the Day

My friend, Claire, who could have at one point been my mother-in-law (that's another story), was having trouble with her cell phone. She took it to the cell store and told the salesperson that it wouldn't work. The salesperson said, "Well, it must have gotten wet."

Claire insisted that it did not get wet.

Salesperson, "Well maybe you left it in the rain, maybe you dropped in a puddle...."

Claire said, "No, it goes from my car, to my purse, to my counter. It most definitely didn't get wet!"

The salesperson opened up the phone and in the back there is some little button that glows red when it gets wet. Well, it was glowing pink. The girl said, "It definitely has some condensation in it, are you sure it hasn't been near humidity, sweat, water or any kind?'

The proverbial light bulb went off in Claire's head. "Well, if I don't have a pocket or my purse, I sometimes keep my phone in my bra."

There is your lesson for the day... If you are going to keep your phone in your bra, make sure you are not sweating.

Now that's one place I never put anything except my boobs. It would just be too uncomfortable and I would be afraid of loosing the item. :-)

Ah. I think she still could have played it off to humidity damaging the phone so she'd get a free one. ;)

Good to know. I'll make a mental note NOT to keep my phone in my bra!

LOVE the header!

We have a an older client at the nail salon where I work who, at the end of her appointment, asks my boss (who does her nails) to REACH IN to her bra and get her money. She doesn't keep it all the way down in there where you would think she'd be asking my boss to reach in so she could have someone grope her; it's more in the cleavage area. But STILL!! EEEEWW!

Digging into her top and hitting inactive phone.

Well, that answers that little question. :)
