Default Pool Incident

Please Login to Remove!

I haven't logged on to the forum in a long time. But I decided to share hat happened to me last night.

I recently upgraded my 8700c to the new OS this past Wednesday. I went to a friend's house for a little get-together with some friends. Right when I got there, a couple of my friends (I'm gona guess around 5 of them) decided to attempt to throw me in the pool.

Luckily, my girlfriend had my wallet in her bag. (Why carry a wallet when there's no money in it?)

Anyway, I was within seconds of being thrown in when... ...

My Blackberry's in my pocket!!! F#%k!!!

I was carried over to the pool and lifted over their heads. All that was running through my head was...I can get a Curve now...but in through all the laughing of my friends and most of the girls...I hear my girlfriend yell "There's no insurance on your phone!"

That's when I took drastic measures to secure my BB from going in the pool with me...the count to throw me in began 1...2...3!!!!

I reached into my pocket and as they were on 3 and threw my BB in mid-air towards the unknown...

SPLASH! Once in the water, all I could think about was my BB, hoping that she'll be okay...

I got out of the pool. I asked where my BB went. I was pointed in a direction. I conducted a search of the area and found my BB with a couple of new scratches...right next to the BEER!!!

I picked up my fully functional BB got a nice cold brew and enjoyed the rest of the night...

My friends always told me that I had the reflexes of a ninja.

Now I understand.

That's my story. LOL!

...and the fact that she acutally KNEW there was no insurance on your phone is another plus. My wife hasn't a clue about what's on her account.
