There are lessons here for all of us

At the weekend, I dropped my HTC Desire from my hand and onto the ground. This was the result:

There were no tears, but it took a moment or two to overcome the temptation to "blame" somebody. In the end, it's just something that happened to a thing. Not the end of the world. Not even close.

Especially as I'm still able to use the thing...

So, I'm thinking that life is about learning and wondering what lessons can we learn from this?

I'll start:
don't hold your phone in the same hand you are using to open the car door.

Please join in - add your "lessons" in the comments!

I dropped my iPhone out of the car window.

Remarkably, it survived with the tiniest of scratches on the back.

Have you tried switching it off and switching it back on again?

Sorry.

Especially when there's an insurance... ;-)))

That's very true, Malena!

It took me a week or so to decide if I was going to claim on insurance or try and replace the screen myself.

I've opted for the insurance route...

Thanks for your comment!
