    Is that it? Am I screwed? I haven't tried turning it on yet. I am leaving it off for a few days to let it dry and see if it survives although I really doubt it. I felt it vibrating while I was drying it with paper towels. The phone didn't go through the whole wash cycle it just sat in the water while the washer filled but it was for a good minute or two. I guess I'll be getting a new one but I was wondering if I turn in the old broken phone could I get at least 100 bucks off the new one or something? Just trying to find a bright spot in this horrible night of mine. You must be wondering how I managed to stick the iphone into the washer aren't you? Want to hear the story? I must warn you it is very disgusting.

    Ok so tonight I go out to dinner with my family. Right before dessert arrives I start feeling a little weird to my stomach but I decide not to use the bathroom in the restaurant. I figure it can wait until I get home since it is only a 15 minute drive. On my way home on the highway there is a car accident right before my exit. I am stuck with no way to get off. I start to have cold sweats and shake. I can't hold it in anymore. I try but in the end I have to excuse myself and let it go in front of my mother and significant other. As you can imagine since I was having such horrible stomach pains what came out wasn't pretty. I make a huge mess and it reaches the seat. I have to sit there with the stench and my poor family for what seems to be an eternity. I really don't know how long it was since I lost track of all time.

    I get home and I live in a condo so I have to try to make it upstairs without anyone seeing me. Of course with my great luck there is someone else arriving with me so I have to take the back entrance and run towards the stairs so I can make it up before they do and anyone else arrives. I managed to get there before them but I think they managed to catch a good view of my backside while I was on my way up. I can only hope they didn't get a good view of my face.

    So I get to the bathroom, take off all of my clothes and jump into the shower. When I get out of the shower my mom is back from cleaning the car. I decide to throw the clothes away but then I mention to her that those are my favorite pants. She says no to throw them away, that she is going to wash them for me. So she takes my pants out of the trash and puts them in the washer. I get the urge to go to the bathroom again and I start looking for my phone so that I can listen to music while I do #2. Wait! Where is my phone? Turns out I had left it in my pants pocket! So I dug it out from the washer and it is now sitting on the counter drying.

    The End.

    On the bright side of things I have an awesome caring mother, a great partner who doesn't mind I crapped all over their car and I also managed to match 3 numbers on my lotto ticket!

    You should have just made your nickname "poopants", because every time I see "snchpnz" in these forums, that's what I'm going think.


    Thank god you didn't include pics.

    Don't turn the phone on. Wait a few days and make sure it is completely dry, there *MAY* still be hope. As for your story, I believe it. :)

    The same thing happened to me a few months ago (minus the iPhone). I went to a hockey game, and on the way out, while waiting in traffic in the parking garage, my stomach started. There was NO way I could wait! One of my friends jumped in the driver seat, and I ran off to find a BR. I tried to go back in the arena, but the stupid security wouldn't let me back in after I had left, even though I showed them my ticket stub. So there I am running around the street in a bad neighborhood looking for a bathroom, that I probably didn't want to use if I found it. Needless to say I didn't find it. I had my cell, so I called my friends who were still in the parking garage, and they parked, and came down to meet me. It was the most embarrassing thing that has happened to me. One of my friends told the security guard what happened, and they FINALLY let me go to the BR to clean my-self up, with a security escort (stood outside the door). To make a long story short we went back to my friends house, and I took a shower, and borrowed some pants. :) So don't feel bad about it man. To put it quite literally **** Happens :)

    Wow that was a long ramble :) Sorry, but I know I needed someone to make me feel better after my incident :)

    I'm sorry, no way a guy is going to sh*t himself in front of his gf.

    He'd hang his ass outside the door, out the window...anything.

    Jesus christ what an epic story... and quite horrific I might add. I would have held it in for dear life before I ***** myself in my car with other people in it.:eek:

    Sounds like a case of food poisoning, perhaps you can make the restaurant pay for a new phone :)

    Put it in a tupperware bowl with some uncooked rice. Bury it in the rice. The rice will help dry it out.

    And while you're at it, eat some rice. It will settle your bowels.

    Rice rice baby.

    too proud to use a public bathroom?

    This will teach you to try and ignore your stomach. when it tries to tell you something, you had better listen!

    ok..i'm going to say it:

    what a ****** situation :)

    i would have tried to get outside, but i know how those stomach pains can feel. the positive note is that you'll hit the bathroom sooner next time.

    as for the iphone, maybe mention it to Moms too. maybe she'll chip in feeling bad that she tossed the pants in. not entirely her fault, but Moms might feel sorry for you.
