That’s how they end up at the Genius Bar

My iPhone had a software glitch yesterday, so I took it to the Apple store in Pentagon City for expert care. While I was waiting, a young and quite cute Asian woman sat down next to me. Her iPhone’s screen was shattered.

“You dropped it?” I asked her, sympathetically.

“No,” she confessed. “I threw it.”


  1. Ah, that’s why I don’t need one. My BlackBerry 8700g has withstood a lot of abuse…99% of it accidental…and still works beautifully (I think it must be part tank). I did bounce it off the hardwood floor once in a fit of rage and it didn’t even scratch it.
    I’m up for a new phone in a week and a half when we switch from T-Mobile to Verizon. I have my eye on a lovely pink BlackBerry Curve but it doesn’t look nearly as sturdy as what I have now…it’s going to need to be babied, it looks like!
    Hope you got your phone fixed with no problems! 🙂

  2. (I am reposting with corrections in my writing).

    Very funny. I couldn’t really understand how one can sum up the courage to throw such an expensive stuff without thinking. If the Iphone cost me like $40, then I wouldn’t mind, LOL.
