Yesterday I dropped my phone like I do at least 8 times a week, and the screen shattered in a million pieces even though I have one of those dorky mom Speck cases with the lip around the edge.
I have Apple Care, so I figured the kids and I would run to the store and swap it out if repair was going to take too long. I have done this before several times, so I didn't think it would be an issue. I also checked first to see if there were any appointments. But there weren't. Until fucking Wednesday.
The kids and I included harry, by the way, who has stopped puking but has a fever, chills and body aches but had to go with us to the Little Gym to watch Dorothy and Cooper's class. He isn;t coughing or expelling any sort of contagious fluids, and he feels fine with Tylenol, so I figured it was OK for him to sit in the lobby and play with this iPad. No OK? Waiting two fucking hours for an Apple Store walk-in appointment that would perfectly coincide with Jack needing to be picked up from school.
We all went home, and I planned to swing by on my way to campus and see if I could drop off my phone or get in virtual line for an after work appointment. OF COURSE I got in line only to be texted that it was my turn when I was in the middle of a meeting 30 minutes away. I planned to stop by AGAIN on my way home, but it snowed really bad and I didn't want to be skulking around the mall until 9pm.
So I have a broken phone, a Thursday appointment and plans to stalk the Apple Store and then do some work at a Starbucks across the street after I teach my class and go to meetings meetings meetings. Because Wednesday? Means I'll have 4 damn kids along.
I mena, you guys. I have a busted phone and I don;t care how much they charge me to fix it. I'll even get a new one-- JUST FIX MY FUCKING PHONE ALREADY. It reminds me of the time my washer broke and I had to wait 5 days for a new one even though I wasn't even being a little bit picky. Oompa Loompa. Right now. Etc.
On the plus side, The Little Gym was adorable, and I would show you a picture, but my computer is completely full and nothing more will download. FML.
