If you read my last post, you know that my phone fell in the toilet yesterday. I’ve always had a bad relationship with my phone but I really want it to be okay. I am not ready to move on. We’ve been through a lot together and it’s too soon to say goodbye. If I do get a new phone, I want to it to be out of choice, not out of necessity.
I left my blackberry in the rice overnight. It’s still in there. And I am suffering. I think my phone being out of commission is affecting my mental state. This morning I forgot to bring a towel to the bathroom with me when I had a shower. Consequently, I had nothing to dry off with. Not even a bag of rice. Maybe I subconsciously wanted to connect with my phone in a way?
I am now debating whether I should take it out and test it soon or whether I should leave it longer still. I googled what to do and some places say that you should leave it overnight, while others say that you should leave it for 5 days. Which is it?!? I need to know! Now! If I could just have a clear answer, it would put my mind at ease at least a little bit. At this point I have no idea when I will finally cave and this is upsetting me.
I’ve been surviving without it and trying not to think about it too much. But then I get the urge to check my messages and then the realization hits me that I can’t. I’m sure some people would be surprised that I’ve already gone this long without testing it out. Perhaps I should take bets with people as to how long I can wait for. Then maybe I could win enough money to buy a new phone if this one doesn’t pull through.
Does anyone have any advice or happen to know how long exactly I should wait?
