Drowned My Phone-Dumbass

Like an idiot I got into the pool yesterday with my phone in pocket. Took it out and let it dry but moisture is in it and now it is dead.
HTC Hero best phone I ever had and I killed it.
Now I either have to take a refurbished phone or lay out the $ for a new one.
Dumbass.

When did you buy it? You may be able to get a discount if you re-up.

You didn't get the $5/mo warranty thing? That sucks, man.

Oh yes, I have the phone insurance. But they replace it with a refurb, not a new one.

Who cares? If it breaks, you just replace it again. If they sent you a refurb without telling you it's one, you wouldn't even know.

Oh I would know my friend, I would know. It doesn't have that new-phone smell

Plus its $100 deductible every time you replace the phone. Much less $ than a new phone I know but I hold quarters so tight the eagle screams and paying for a phone I already own just pisses me off.

I ****ing hate getting a refurbished phone. I've gone over and over about this with Sprint. If I pay $300 for a brand new phone....I expect a brand new phone if it stops working. I pay for the insurance.....give me a ****ing brand new phone.

I can't bring myself to purchase that handset insurance. It just seems like a gigantic rip-off.

That being said a refurb is fine.

I could but I'm too cheap to pay the full cost of a new phone (my next phone replacement credit is 9 months from now).

I really like the Hero.

No, no, no. You're not a dumbass.

THIS is a dumbass:

1. Unbuckle pants to piss, because my jockey shorts fly has become twisted to the side and therefore inaccessible.

2. Forget that cell phone is clipped in front of the first belt loop.

3. Watch as cell phone slides off belt into toilet now filling with piss.

4. Wait two beats to realize YOU BETTER GET THAT PHONE, reach into PISS WATER to retrieve it.

5. It's wet. It's turned off. What to do. WELL, DON'T TURN IT ON, YOU IDIOT. Ooops -- YOU JUST TURNED IT ON.

6. Pop open the back. It's soaked. Hmmm, I wonder if that's a bad thing.

7. Take it to Verizon. Customer care guy at the front asks what the problem is. Hmmm. You didn't turn it on, did you. WHY, **** YES, I DID. Mmmm, it may not be fixable. But tell you what, don't tell the service desk that you got it wet. They might be able to replace the battery for you.

8. Service Desk: HEY, DID YOU GET THIS THING WET? Me, uh, no, I don't recall. WELL, IT SURE LOOKS WET. It's fried.

9. We see here that you don't have the insurance plan. A replacement will cost you $500.

10. Beg, plead for some kind of discount ("I'm a longtime customer ... I'll extend my contract for 100 years!"). Manager: I'm so sorry. Well, OK, you can have a new one for $400.

11. Thanks. Now, how much does it cost for that insurance coverage THAT I'M GATDAMNED SURE TO BUY FOREVER AND EVER AMEN.

Yes, that DUMBASS ... was ME.

I have used the insurance on every phone I've ever had. I'm pretty frugal, don't buy extended warranties, etc. but this is one expense that pays off for me.

Don't be sorry. It's quite funny -- in retrospect. I deserve a beatdown for that sheer dumbassery anyway.

Obviously, I was soooooo stupid and clueless about, well, everything. The good news is: Learn from your mistakes. I got an expensive but valuable lesson.

I'm like you -- Extended warranties? Meh. Cell phone insurance. Absolute must.

Also, ALWAYS take your cell phone off your belt before you piss.
