So today at work, I was on my way to a do clear a tagout when I saw a co-worker standing in the Turbine Building facing away from me. For whatever reason, I decided it would be hilarious to spook him. So I walk up behind hiim (the area is quite loud) and then jump high and land hard on the grating and shout out "WHOA!", to which he jumps and shrieks in a most satisfying way. (all this done with utmost safety in mind)

Later on I'm telling another co-worker about my mischievous deed, complete with the jump... when my phone flew out of my shirt pocket and smashed on the floor.

Now the screen is borked. Not just cracked, oh no, that would be something I could live with. No, this puppy won't work at all. And the replacement is an astounding $210.

Kind of glad I didnt' get rid of my EVO when I bought this one... 7 months ago.

And that, kids, is why we get insurance on our smartphones.

I've had to file two separate insurance claims for my droid razr since I got it. The insurance, at $5 a month and a $100 deductible has still paid for itself several times over.

I'm assuming you didn't tell Mel what actually happened...

I told her... and she laughed pretty hard at me. And then called me a dork.
