Yep, that just happened. Sad to be me.
Funny thing is Drew and I were sitting on the sidewalk, near the rocks and I thought, “I sure hope he doesn’t drop this thing” as he was launching some ‘Angry Birds’.
He handed the phone off to Aiden and they started walking towards the house for dinner. I remember thinking, “Oh good. Aiden has it now.” So nothing to worry about, right?
I came back around the corner from putting something in the garage and Aiden sullenly walked up to me and handed me my phone and said, “I’m sorry, Mom. I dropped your phone on accident ~ it was an accident!” I couldn’t even be mad. I’m the adult who let my 4 year old carry her phone across rocks and concrete.
So what should I do now?? I checked some prices online and here are my options:
- It’s $110 to replace the cracked screen (which is so cracked it’s barely holding together beneath my cheap screen protector ~ a lot of good that did me?!).
- I’m eligible for upgrade so it’s $99 for a new 4 or 4s
- …or $199 for a new iPhone 5 (16GB / or @299 for 32GB)
- Scrap the idea of a cell phone all together and get those new riding boots I’ve been daydreaming about
Don’t let me fool you ~ I know nothing about GBs except higher = more storage. And replacing the screen myself isn’t going to happen.
What’s a girl to do??
