My BlackBerry died, and my boyfriend is being less than sympathetic

22 Sep

Few things sting in life like a sudden loss.

This morning, my BlackBerry died. Suddenly. Without explanation.

I’m grieving. This sort of loss, one this devastating, is hard to cope with.  I have to go to the post office today and likely stand in line for an hour with no access to Twitter. No access to email. No phone.

I know. I’m really struggling.

I went to my boyfriend for understanding. For a sympathetic ear.

From me: My phone died this morning. Have no idea what happened, it just won’t turn on at all.  This is the saddest day ever. I feel like I’ve lost the one thing that I loved. Because I LOVE my Blackberry. Dude, how am I going to carry on? Pray for me.

From him: That makes me feel so warm and fuzzy to know that the only thing you actually love is your Blackberry. Tender. You’ll be ok. You still have a computer.

From me: My computer doesn’t fit into my PALM!  I don’t think you appreciate the gravity this situation. MY BLACKBERRY! Plus, now I don’t have a phone. Hello? A phone. Ha ha ha ha. FML.

From him: Oh, you love me, too? That’s sweet. 

From me: Right now I feel like you’re being less than sympathetic to my dire and troubling situation. I reserve all feeling for you until this has been resolved. I said Good Day!
Scoundrels, I need support. We all know how much our smart phones rule our worlds. Give a girl some love here.

    Prior to having my new Blackberry, I had a a shitty little Envy flip phone.
    I can’t say I was in love with it, but it served its purprose.

    However, when I dropped in a toilet at a coffee shop…I felt like a part of me had been wrenched away.
    My sidekick in all things communicative had been drowned in the grim waters of a public toilet.

    I had an attack. I fretted. I cried out.

    And although, once dried, the flip phone still worked – I had to get a new phone.
    The waiting…AGONIZING.

    So, I feel you, lady!
    You want empathy…talk to me – I’m a bonified Blackberry addict.

      You two need to get a life (said as I’m clutching my smart phone), and remember, your phone won’t dick you down at night or hold you tight.

        My smart phone might not dick me, but it will show me dicks…if I want it to.

          Ooooo, can I borrow it?

          • Becky September 22, 2010 at 12:07 pm #

            Yeah, as long as you don’t drop it in the toilet.

    I refuse to use a smart phone. Do not need more addictions.

      Addictions? Do we need a Dr. Phil moment? Wait, is he still relevant? *shoulders shrug*

        There’s probably an app for that.

    I don’t have a blackberry, but would be devastated without my phone, not even going to lie…. I love my do it all phone. Hope you get a new one soon!

      Thanks, love! I’m going to try to recharge the battery and see if that revives the poor lil’ guy. *tears*

    My trackball on my bberry died yesterday so I went to the Verizon store.

    Me: My trackball doesn’t go down (OK, granted, that was awkward)

    Verizon Guy: That sucks

    Me: Do I get a new phone?

    Verizon Guy: Let me see it

    Verizon Guy: Oh, balls get all messed up when you have crap in your hole. It’s an easy fix, I just need to blow the crap out. It’ll take me two minutes.

    TheVar, do you want an intro? This guy clearly has some skeels. xx

      Balls. Ha ha ha ha!

    • theVar September 22, 2010 at 4:43 pm #

      Uh, hello. YES!

    I don’t know what I’d do without my iPhone. I read the news on it when I am on the train to work, I check my Facebook while in line at Starbucks… How much more lame can I get?

    • Sport September 22, 2010 at 4:43 pm #

      Not lame! This is what makes my weekly trip to the post office for work bearable! That way I can check Twitter and Facebook while I’m waiting in that long ass line. It was horrible today. I had to wait there for an hour and a half with no entertainment. It was like I was back in the 90s or something.

    i’ve never had a phone die on me, but i’ve definitely lost one. its the saddest feeling, because not only is it gone from your life but ITS YOUR FAULT. its the phone equivalent of cheating on someone… you made the mistake.

    the flip side to losing your phone is FINDING IT. there’s nothing quite like the intense euphoria you feel when that little piece of your soul is reunited with your palm. you also realize just how pathetic you are, but its ok cuz it gives you something to tweet about. ;)

      I feel your pain, Eric.

    My old boss spilled a big cup of tea on my old Curve, on New Year’s Eve, mere hours before I was set to hit the town with the friends.

    And what good are friends if I can’t get in contact with them?

    So, on NYE I had to hit the Verizon store at Cherry Creek (a nightmare in itself) only to have the guy tell me they were completely out of Curves. LIke. . .forever.

    So, for 30 bucks they let me upgrade to an Eris. I got to experience the learning curve of having to use a touchscreen while I was filling up on end-of-year libations. I accidentally ended up sending a lot of touch-screen innuendos to a lot of people.

    • Sport September 22, 2010 at 4:46 pm #

      Maybe I’ll get to upgrade my phone. But I think I’ll forever cling to the memory of my first BB. RIP, Friend.

      You need to tell your boss to MAN/WOMAN UP!!! Who the hell drinks tea on New Year’s Eve???? :)
