pleasure in the pathless woods  
My month-old, three hundred euro, REALLY PRITTY PHONE, was in my gym bag when my water bottle decided to leak out all over it. It is dead as a very dead thing that was never alive, and there's no chance of a refund/replacement besides. Then, like a tool, I went and left it behind in the hospital, where it will probably be stolen ere morning.

Yesterday, a fellow student of my university died in the resus after having a car roll over his head. There were brains left on the wall of his house. His dad didn't recognise his own son when he came to identify the body.

That's the thing with A&E - you're guaranteed that someone is ALWAYS having a worse day than you.

Ugh, that's awful.

I'm sorry about your phone.

Yeah - the unfortunate thing with perspective, though, is that is just reminds you that some bad things aren't happening to you but others are. Ugh.

Pretty shitty, all right.

Eh, I've stuck it in the hot press. Mayhap it will dry out.

How did his brains get on the wall when the car would have rolled over his head on the ground?

... actually, maybe I don't need to know. D:

It was actually, like, crushed between the bumper and the wall.

You really didn't, huh. ;D

It's kinda not as bad as I'd imagined. I was thinking more along the lines of stepping on a grape.

Oh dear, that is terrible: that you broke (lost) your phone, but also the guy from university. :(

I got my phone back this morning - decently, no one touched it - but I'm incubating it inside my electric blanket at the mo.

Yeah, I was talking to a garda about it - he'd come in for the coroner's report or something. Crazy horrible.

On the bright side, if your phone still doesn't work, and it's insured, and gets stolen, you could probably get it replaced!

Not that my fiancée took a hammer to her phone when she found out insurance wouldn't replace it when it didn't work because of a virus, or anything...

That's a great idea! ... except for how I don't have insurance. D:
