Anyone who knows me, knows me and my cell phone(s) do not get along, at all. For example, a little over 2 months ago I dropped my phone into a mug of scalding hot coffee. (Don't ask how, it just happend, ok?) After some consultation with the "Wireless Specialist" we determined that the phone would work after it "dried out." Well, it did, kinda. There were "provisions" to using this phone. It didn't matter if I was talking on it, creating a text message or scheduling an appointment, the phone would cut out and turn off at any moment and then turn back on, by itself. It was f'd up, had to get a new one.
Anyway onto Part III, (I'm not mentioning Part I...lol) New phone, same Mandalay. On my way home from the golf course this evening, I decided to stop and grab a bite to eat at one of my favorite Italian restaurants. I've been going to this place for years, great food, great people and outstanding service. I always sit at the bar (since I'm always alone) so I got a drink, ordered my food and started talking to the bartender. After about 20 min. my food came. Huge plate of Veal Parm. and Pasta. As I'm eating my phone starts "buzzing" in my pocket, you know, keep it on vibrate in public areas. Put the fork down, reach in the pocket, grab the phone, say "hello" and the next thing you know, some idiot is walking behind my bar stool, hits the back of my chair, my arm goes forward, the phone flies out of my hands RIGHT INTO MY PASTA!!
HAHA... that was funny... I can just see you, Mand, when the guy hits you from behind at the bar... LOL
BTW... from what I read here, I kinda noticed that men are really clumsier with their cell phones than women... hmmmmmm... hehehe
Like Fun, I've had a cell for a really long time, I had the big heavy one too... The only mishap I had with my phone is that I was running across the street to a meeting and my high heel caught in a crack in the asphalt and I went flying in the air, fell on the pavement, and my cell just flew out of my purse. I didn't even notice I had lost it until I needed it again. Needless to say that was very embarrassing... bloody knees, missing one shoe (still stuck in the crack), nylons totally destroyed... yep, really embarrassing...
OMG - LMAO - that was too funny Mandalay!
Great excuse for future use: Sorry I didn't call, my phone fell in my pasta!
If some woman doesn't believe you just send her here to the forums to read this thread.
wwww..... what can I say...? You've surpassed yourself here. LOL
Mandalay it seems you need to quit carrying that phone around. Stick it in your pocket you'll drop it get a belt clip it is safer. Less cause for attacking Pasta.
I am one on occasion to loose mine. I did that recently went and bought another one and found the good one.I think we need and independent alarm on those things. Never dropped it in water but my kids have. It's just one of those thing we have to have so off to the store for one more round..

Discussed part II first, skips part I, then on to part III. Kinda of like your project directions ... a bit befuddled ... but readable.
Get it yet?
You must be on drugs because I never said anything about Jim posting cellphone stories before in the first place. So what are you talking about? You just are not making any sense. Go to bed and sleep it off.
Somehow I never heard about your cell phone travails before. But I laughed because we have this in common. I dropped mine in a river on my farm, the toilet, and the driveway where I promptly ran over it with my truck. That finally killed it.
Here's a tip for those of you who, like me, like to give your cellphone an occassional impromptu bathing. Turn it off first, a short can destroy it. Get out your vacuum cleaner (Petite - you can use your mouth) and su*ck on every crevice, crack, seam, and hole (cup your hand for maximum suction). You may need to do this for a good ten minutes. But it works!
Poor Mandy :( My heart goes out to you...me and my $300 bills dont like that :( I drop mine and break the carrier all the time...Then I lose the damn thing all the time in the bottom of my purse, btw the time I get the call they hang up....I forget it all the time at home...and fell in the pool w/it on the 4th :(
