After I dropped my BlackBerry down an elevator shaft at my doctor’s office a couple of weeks ago, I went this week to pick up the remains. The brains of my BlackBerry are scrambled, but check out the screen—not a single scratch or crack! I’m really impressed by this phone’s durability. It fell down over five flights!
I was walking out of the elevator door yesterday morning, on the 3rd floor of my doctor’s office, when the trusted BlackBerry I was holding in my hand (where it usually lives) slipped out of my fingers and fell down. No, not just fell on the floor, but flew vertically down, sliding between the elevator’s inner and outer doors like a stealth bomber. The building’s maintenance wanted to charge me $1000 to go into the elevator shaft and find the phone’s remains, but I’m just going to wait until they do their routine maintenance to see if the image card is salvageable. In the meantime, my new phone doesn’t arrive until Monday! Which leaves me 3 days off-the-grid! See you from the other side!
