this morning at the grocery store whilst running an errand for work, my cell phone fell out of my pocket (i know i came in with it cause i looked at it in the store) and i realized within about a minute it was gone and went right back to where i had bent down to look for it and it was gone.
so i went to customer service and asked if anyone had handed it in, and they hadn't, so i left my name and number, scoured the store, paid for my stuff and went back to the office. within 30 min of losing it, i had suspended the service so no one else could use it either.
i neeeeed my phone, not cause i talk on it all the time, but because my pet sitting clients call me on it. i went back to the store after work, still nothing, so i went and spent $175 on a new phone figuring if no one reported it found in 7 hrs, it was gone.
so 9:30 tonight a guy calls telling me his grandfather found my phone out by a garbage can in the parking lot. thus, someone ganked my phone and realized it wouldn't work and ditched it. instead of like, realizing it wouldn't work and giving it to the store. he's going to drop it off at my office tomorrow.
so now i'm $175 in the hole on the new phone, which is returnable only for store credit for 7 days, and wtf am i gonna do with cell phone store credit?? i don't know if my other phone is damaged or anything yet, but i feel stupid even going back to the cell store because i insisted on buying the phone and this guy went through a bunch of trouble getting it to work and he doesn't get commission on outright sales and i even though i've only recieved one (client) call on the new phone (same exact as my old one btw), i haven't even removed the plastic or called anyone. its just been charging. i don't think these people are going to be too keen on me returning it. i feel like if i'd just been more patient i wouldn't've blown all this money. now i'm all stressed out over this, i'm overbooked for petsitting in july, i haven't had a real weekend in like four weeks, and i'm exhausted.
so thanks for listening to me whine, i have no idea what i'm going to do, and i just wanna go to bed and cry.
