First of all, there is that awful moment when it flies out of your hand.
And in slow motion you wait for it to crash to the ground.
Of course it lands glass face down.
Then there is that heart-thundering, X Factor eviction moment as you reach for your phone, knowing you will either be given another chance or you are being sent home.
Of course. It’s smashed.
First there is blinding rage.
Then comes the self-pity because how are you ever going to afford to fix it?!
Then there’s the anger at yourself for not doing more sooner.
All of those protective screens you ripped off because they were too bubbly…they could have saved you. You may as well have smashed it up yourself to save time.
You try to use your phone with a smashed screen and begin to hate life.
Every Whatsapp message and SnapChat makes you furious at whoever is sending them – don’t they know your struggles?!
Instagram may as well be a fond memory for how much you can’t look at it OR post.
Then of course, there are the miscellaneous shards of black glass that keep falling off your phone.
You realise that, no matter how much you hate it, you have to get your phone fixed.
You start looking around for prices and realise that you may as well buy another phone than get it fixed at the proper phone store.
So you turn to your nearest phone repair kiosk.
Handing over the money, you think of the sheer possibilities of what you could have bought if you weren’t so careless and clumsy.
But then you get it back, and it’s so shiny and whole again! You forgot that your phone could ever look so beautiful.
Of course you ignore the sales assistant’s offer to cover it with a protective case or for you to look into getting insurance. You’re not going to drop it ever again.
Except that you will. Obviously.
