I went on the bin roof to open the lid a few days ago .After opening it I noticed a birds nest in the spreader so I bent over to dig it out.All the sudden the front pocket of my shirt gave up it's grip on my cell phone and down it goes,spinning,twisting, and then hitting the bin floor in a 3 piece explosion of plastic,technology, and all of my contacts .
Soooo,any of you that I have spoken to over the years, I lost your phone number.If interested in staying in touch,pm me or send an e-mail.It's amazing how something that didn't exist a few years ago has taken such control of our lives.I don't know how I'll ever remember who was in my contacts list.
BTW- retail on the replacement phone was $795.00 so buy the insurance. I did this time.
I guess all them smart phones ain't really that smart , are they ? If it was a $20 dollar phone it would have landed in a soft spot .
Late this summer I was headed about 12 miles away with the combine for some custom work . I had my cheap "dumb phone " threw
in a side window and it wasn't locked . As I turned a corner , the window come open enough that my phone fell out on top of the right drive tire . At the time I didn't notice it . When I got to the field I went to use my phone and its gone . I figured I should at least try to find the pieces . The farmer whose field I was doing took me back down the road to look for it . Well there it lay , about 4 miles from the guys field , fliped open , right on a road intersection in the middle of the road . I got out to pick it up figuring it wouldn't work and was broke to pieces . I picked it up and thought it looks perfect , so I called home and it worked fine . How it didn't get smashed by the drive tire is anybody guess . Why it didn't get get ran over by another vehicle laying there in the middle of the road , I don't know . And why nobody picked it up , well I guess nobody wants a cheap dumb phone any more .
Yup it's the phone I still have and use . To have a smart phone , you should probably be smarter than the phone . Not sure I am !
Oh ya , the wife says I probably wouldn't have missed the damn thing anyhow , as I seldom use or carry it anyway . She's Right !
