A long time ago, could even be 10 years now, I witnessed a great comedy mishap that ended up in what was at the time, a very much desired Mobile device getting absolutely smashed. I’d like to share that with you, in the hope that you (the collective ‘you’, that is!) have some amusing anecdotes you might like to share back…
A colleague of mine, working at a Mobile Operator (who shall remain nameless), had just taken delivery of one of the first Nokia 61xx series devices that anyone had seen. He exited his car in the car park with the device in his right hand, and proceeded to shut the car door with his left hand. At this point, for reasons unknown (perhaps his choice of footwear), he received a substantial static shock from the car door, which saw him twitch so violently with his right arm that he launched the device up in the air. The trajectory was such that a 10-15ft distance was achieved horizontally. On becoming intimately acquainted with the car park surface, the phone did ‘dissipate’ in to several pieces, smashing beyond repair. This however did not stop the colleague in question from trying to tape it back together. Amusing, I’m sure you’ll agree, but I am betting not the funniest that you may have been happen!
Hit me back with your anecdotes, for the IntoMobile readership to read and chuckle over 🙂
