    I have been a member here for awhile but I don't post much because of all the childish bickering, but I had to tell someone this story that would appreciate it!

    So me and my GF went fishing Saturday night (Susquehanna River). We didn't catch to much until it started getting dark. We were fishing from a HUGE rock with a deep hole in front of it. I got the first fish and it was a monster!! GIANT Channel catfish, but just as I got it to the rock my line ripped!
    Then I caught another one! This one was only 27", decent but much smaller then the first one I caught. My GF grabbed my iPhone 3GS and snapped a few pics. Almost right after that she caught one, about 15". She was excited because it was her first fish so she grabbed my iPhone again and snapped a few pics, but this time I heard a strange noise. Almost like the sound of an iPhone hitting a rock and sliding into the water. But I thought nah, She would never let that happen...
    Well then I heard her crying and thought uh oh, this can't be good! Last thing I remember hearing is "I'm so sorry, I'm so sorry it was an accident"
    Well needless to say, she dropped my poor phone in the river. After beating the crap out of her, I cleaned up the blood and weighed my options.
    Do I...
    A. Jump in the deep dark hole in the snapper turtle filled Susquehanna River at 11 at night after already drinking a few to many beers?
    B. Throw her in the river and not let her come back out until the phone is in her hand?
    C. Go home crying the whole way with her corpse in the trunk?

    Well since I am an old man and a giant ***** I chose C! I drove my sorry ass home while my iPhone was swimming with da fishes (I Know, I know I SUCK!).
    I had a few more beers after I got home and got a shower. Its about 1AM and my phone is at the bottom of the river! :(
    I couldn't take it anymore, I got dressed and went back to the phone swallowing hole(my mom picked me up). By this time it's close to 2AM and my poor iPhone has been submerged for almost 3hrs!!! After we got there, I took a few deep breaths and with a snapper turtle beating board in my hand I dove in! Luckily the hole was not as deep as I thought, it was only about to my shoulders. To make an already too long story a little shorter I FOUND IT!!!
    Here comes the good part...I HAD 2 MISSED CALLS AND 3 MESSAGES!!!!
    :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:
    That's right, after 3 hours at the bottom of a river the phone was still working!! Well that is until my drunken ass tried to turn it off quick, then an apple appeared on the screen then blanked out.
    I seriously doubt the phone will ever turn on again. But it now has a cracked and severely scratched screen and is sitting in a bowl of rice in my lizard room.
    I learned a few things from this...
    1. I am stupid.
    2. girls are stupid.
    3. I love and miss my iPhone more then any girl I have ever known.
    4. Never take your phone fishing with you.
    5. My 2 year old Cingular 8525 gets WAY better reception and battery life then my month old iPhone.
    6. iPhone rocks, but luckily doesn't make good bait!

    Hopefully this story will teach some of you young punks something valuable!

    Thanks for reading!!
    flame away....

    Wow well one that sucks accidents happen

    And two very very distasteful story. Sorry but IMHO making jokes about domestic violence and murder over a cell phone is pretty distasteful.

    1) It's not domestic violence if she deserved it and
    2) It's not murder unless someone else can prove it..

    Great story, lol.:rolleyes:

    Well on the bright side won't Apple give him a cheaper replacement if you take in your "water damaged" (although it seems more than that!) iPhone?

    haha I like the way you think!!

    LOL Actually me too! I didn't even get mad at her, it was an accident and it's just a phone. ;)
    It just sucks that I didn't back it up in so long!
    BTW does a backup also back up your camera role? I forget.

    Yes, it backs up the camera roll, among other things.

    No, he didn't go far enough to make it funny.

    If he had described some elaborate and painful punishment, that would be good dark humor.

    But just saying he "beat the crap out of her" is uncomfortably plausible and thus more disturbing than funny.

    my friend found a blackberry buried 6 inches under the snow at the end of the ski season while cleaning up the trails. he took it apart and blow dried it then put it back together and sold it cause it worked perfectly. sucks to hear yours stayed off. i bet if you could have taken it apart you might have been able to save it.

    Really? It's just a phone! LOL
    At most I am out $200, not the end of the world.
    It was worth it to me, I don't regret taking it at all! It was just an unfortunate accident. I took it fishing about 20 other times and it was fine, until my damn GF touched it! :)
    But accidents happen, it's all dry now. No water under the screen. I am going to try to power it up tonight after work...wish me luck!

    It took me less then 10 minutes to type that story out, I really didn't put a lot of thought into it. The main point I was trying to make was that I was amazed that the phone was working when I pulled it from the river! The rest was just quickly flowing from my little brain as I typed.
    I will try a little harder next time, just for you!

    Because I simply put "YDI" which is mostly likely against the rules and someone/bot reported me. Even though posting "YDI" is flaming. :rolleyes: But anywhozls.

    I saw your response but did not respond right away. It was a joke because you joked about beating your wife. No one really deserves to have their beautiful phone ruined.

    So which was it? I deserved it, or I'm an idiot?
