I woke up this morning like I do most mornings. Tossed and turned then reached for my phone to check the time…obviously curious to how much more sleep time I have left. Blank screen.

The horror. My phone was dead…not working. My first line of defense was to try a different outlet. Nada. Naturally I freaked out… Throwing a pity party that my new pretty phone already broke.

In order to keep from throwing a complete temper tantrum I went to the gym to run out my frustration (and try outlets outside of our apartment).

workout of the morning 3 speed miles and 50 incline sit ups.

Zach and I are on our way to the mountains this weekend…so we didn’t have much time to problem solve. We decided we’d run by Walgreens on our way out of town and pick up a car charger (compromise: I don’t have one so we won’t be replacing something we don’t know for sure is broken).

Whomp whomp. Still no luck. After cursing apple and my phone company, I accepted that I’d be months without a phone while they replace it.

Zach assured me that my first step was to call the phone company and troubleshoot. With a 15 second hold of the power and home button my phone rebooted. Fully charged. And I accepted that I am kind of a douche.

So moral of the story: I exaggerate a little sometimes. At least I got a good run out of it πŸ™‚

See you on the mountain

  1. Oh no – sorry to hear that you had that but I’m so glad it was fixed! That kind of thing always happens to me, I’m like “it’s totally broken, the world has ended” and then someone points out it isn’t plugged in etc. Hope you have a fab time!

  2. omg, I would totally spazz out if my phone went dead. kind of sad how much we rely on those suckers, glad you got yours working πŸ™‚

  3. I hate when my phone works, but just in case this happens again- take it to an apple store, they’ll replace the phone for free depending on what the issue is πŸ™‚

  4. HA HA! I know the technology over exaggeration very well. When I am ready to smash my computer, body bugg, iPod, garmin with a hammer and then tap dance on it and then throw it out the window because I can’t get it to connect (or whatever I am trying at the time), my calm cool hubby steps in and is like “just try a re-start” “just bring it my MAC” “just calm down and stop being a crazy person” (ok I threw that one in) and 99% of the time it works and I freaked for nothing πŸ™‚

  5. I’m glad your phone works! I think something like that has happened to my iPhone 5, too. The screen goes black and it won’t turn on like it’s completely dead and plugging it in seems to do no good, yet somehow it starts working again after a while. Luckily that has only happened very very rarely!
