I'm willing to poke fun at myself for this one.....
Anyways, while doing a load of laundry, I noticed the dryer was making a lot more noise than it should have been making. Upon opening it up and looking through my clothes, I found out the problem...... it turns out that when emptying the pockets in my jeans, I forgot to take one item out -- and now I REALLY regret doing so.
What was the item? None other than my CELL PHONE!!!! Go ahead and laugh, point fingers, and mock me..... but this is one time when a technological gadget failed on me that I deserved to have fail. This sort of thing has NEVER happened before (usually it's just loose change that I forget to empty out).
Needless to say, warranty will NOT cover this phone (although I should take a picture just so I can laugh at myself). I'm also darn lucky I caught this the moment it got in the dryer -- something tells me the heat could have had a disasterous effect on the battery. Now to let the phone dry off and see if the SIM card is salvageable (I doubt it).
Gosh I'm a bonehead.
