When I went to Carnival my phone, an Iphone 5, was acting really weird. I bought it used off the internet and I’ve had it almost a year. So I wasn’t surprised when it had it’s badly timed tantrum.
For some reason, my phone just stopped working. It wouldn’t unlock or turn off or anything. I spent a lot of time just pressing buttons. Finally, I gave up. And just went the first night without my phone. Then, at 6AM. My alarm went off because I was too dumb to turn off my alarms for the weekday.
I frantically tried to get it to turn off. I could only put it on nap. Finally, exhausted and after twenty minutes of messing with this damn phone, I put it outside so it could die. I didn’t die for almost an hour of ringing and ringing and ringing. I thought I was going to go crazy. I took out my sim card because I was considering throwing off the terrace just to make it stop. Then it turned off around 6:30 AM only to wake up at 7:30 AM.
In the morning, my Australian roommate reset it. I thought I had tried to do that but maybe dying and coming back to life gave it a better attitude in the morning.
