A month ago I drowned my phone in a river whilst bothering trout. Mobile phones and I just don’t get along very well, there is usually some drama going on that requires me to want to fling it off a cliff or pour acid all over it. Sometimes it isn’t the actual phone but the service provider or spare parts supplier.
I bought 2 replacement phones, one checked second hand and one brand spanking new, both were none functional and had to be returned with grace and good humour. My drowned phone has rolled back the rock and come back to life but the screen is dead, so there is hope for it yet, new screen on its way.
This all leads to the apology I’d like to make to anyone who’s tried to ring my mobile over the last month and found it uncooperative:
