Every Single Thing You Feel When Your Phone Falls Down

April 4, 2016

You refused to get a phone case because how will people now know how much you spent if your phone has cover cloth?

So, since your pride fought with your common sense (and won).

…and they taught us that pride cometh before THE FALL, you just know it was inevitable.

That moment your phone fell from your hand for the first time and the whole world entered slow motion.

It didn’t fall when there was carpet oh, it waited till it saw concrete to show itself.

Now you’re just looking at your phone face down on the floor and trying to remember if you prayed in the morning.

First, your account balance flashes before your eyes.

Then your brain starts calculating exchange rate.

After saying a small prayer, you finally gather the courage and pick it up and you see a scratch.

The scratch is small, but because you are a member of RichGang, you cannot be carrying scratched phone up an down.

You sha somehow cough up the money to fix it.

Your phone is now looking good as new, so covering it with phone case is not even an option.

But because these phones are wicked and can never just fall once, it sha falls again.

This one is not just a scratch, your phone has now turned into a mosaic.

Your account balance is not even having it this time.

You try to put it off and on. Maybe somehow the screen will ‘un-crack’ itself as it reboots.

You leave it overnight and put it under your pillow, hoping God will come down and give you a testimony.

You sha finally accept it. You cannot come and go and kill yourself.

Everytime people ask what happened to your phone, your eyes just water.

They now start giving you ‘advice’ as if you have one time machine sitting in your garage…

“Why didn’t you buy a screen protector?”

“Why are you even buying expensive phone like that?”

“Why didn’t you get insurance?”

“Why didn’t you hold it well?”

Then those annoying people that see your phone and tell you how they could never manage a cracked screen.

But you can’t even be mad because that was how you used to do before.

You swear you will still fix your phone sha, but you are just waiting for dollar to come down.
