5-Minute Freewrite Prompt: My Funny Stories with My Phones

in freewrite •  9 months ago

When I was 17, I remember I yet to carry a mobile phone with me. Very often, I depended on my another "cooler" for friend who had her phone way earlier than me. Thank goodness, she was my good friend. So, my mum would call her to look for me, especially when I had a strict curfew back then.

I remember I was working as a sales promoter after I finished high school and I had to depend on my dad to fetch me home. One night, after I finished work, I couldn't find him and I panicked. I went to the public phones and they were all spoiled. All I could do was just waiting, did not dare to move an inch from the our usual pick up place. I remembered my bladder was full and yet I dared not move to the ladies.

Since then, my dad actually got me a mobile phone, the biggest among all models then. It was a Nokia in bright yellow. I kind of like its colour. It had an antenna and it was really heavy so I had to change to a bigger bag just to carry it out. Thinking back, it is quite funny.

After I came back from national service, I changed to a smaller and more decent phone. It was a Sony Ericsson, one of the cheapest in the market then. I was satisfied to just message my parents, friends and boyfriend that time Hehe.
Then, I dropped it into the toilet bowl because back then I had a habit of keeping it in my back pocket. The wires got electrocuted and it died on me. Then I got my most adored phone, a flip phone.

After that, when I was having my first smartphone, I dropped it into a water puddle and then I learnt the most valuable lesson, which is I can open up all the parts and soak them in a container of rice which will absorb all the moist and the phone can be restored.

In our modern days, I think we can see everyone using our phones so much and it is almost like we can't live without it anymore. It is our alarm clock, our internet and communication device, our camera and also our entertainment gadget. I bet we may feel weird if we were to walk around a day without it. Are you willing to try that?

I have had gone on certain days without mobile phone before! Not continuously though, at least for about 24 hours. I guess, I will be willing to go for it, because I can rely on my laptop! Hahahahaaaa xD

We kind of had a similar issue with my son getting "stranded" exactly where he was suppose to be. We were stranded on the other side of town. Fortunately, we had a cell phone and could call someone to fetch him. Next day we got him a cell phone of his own.

Oh the memories you brought back. Maybe I should do a quick catch up free write. But I do so relate to electronics and water being a buzzy situation.

I had my previous phone dropped in the loo too, right before I'm boarding the bus for company trip. Then I called my dad using colleague's phone, and all he did did was just... laughing out loud on the phone. Hahahaha.

To go without phone in 24 hours... i think can eh! :D

It amazes me how much people rely on their phones now! When I was a kid, I also, did not have a phone, but some of the 'cooler' kids did. It was an option, an accessory. Now, it is almost a necessity! I cant complain though, I like being able to pull my phone out and look up almost anything...
