The Tragedy/ Comedy of the Chocolate
So, for Christmas last year my dad got me a brand new Chocolate. I fell in love with that phone! It was the best phone ever. It was red, sleek, and shiny. I worshiped that phone. However, I was horrified to find out that one of the prongs in the charger port had gotten bent so it would not take the charge. Since I am not on Verizon (I have Cricket and just got it flashed) there was nothing they could do to fix it. My poor chocolate was going to die right there in my hands and there was nothing I could do to save it. My other problem was that if my Chocolate died then I would be left without a phone. Lucky for me, my old phone still worked...for the most part. Yes it could call and yes it could text. That is basically all you need right? Well, there is one other thing you need, and that is a battery. My phone had a battery, but it lasted maybe two hours if I just let it sit there. At least it was a phone though, and at least I wasn't paying a bill for a turned off phone. So there I was with a brick phone that pretty much only served as a paper weight. One terrible day, I got angry. No, that is not the terrible part. What happened to make it so was that I could not control my anger. I decided that my phone was trying to hurt me and I threw it in my rage. The battery popped off which I assumed it would. When I went to pick it up and put it back together I noticed a small, black, speaker looking thing. It took me a few seconds, but I realized that speaker belonged in my phone. It seems I had cast out my speaker in a blind rage. Instead of being angry at my mom, I was so upset with my self. I had a brick that could sometimes call and text. Now all I had was a brick that maybe would stay alive enough for a text. I came to the conclusion that it was time to get a new phone. So I started looking on KSL. I wanted another Chocolate more than anything, but all the ones I found were too expensive. So, I settled on a pink and black Samsung. I went to the mall to flash it to Cricket. I was so excited to finally have a phone back. The next day I called, they said they had spent three hours trying to flash it but it would not take the flash. I was crushed like a kid on Christmas that only gets coal. Back to KSL I went, ever ever searching. Finally I found it! My version on Chocolate, white and only 40 dollars. Dang! If only it were 30, then it would be mine. I made the call that change my cell phone less fate. The lady was really quite friendly, and I was able to get her to lower her price to 30. Yes, success! I was ecstatic and thrilled. We met up on a Saturday morning, and today I got it all set up. No more is Shey Reynolds a brick cell phone girl. Man, it feels good to be free!
