Watch out for hoody pockets!! umm... and toilets...

Ok... I can't believe I'm admitting this... but this morning after my daily pot of coffee I left my TP in the pocket of my hooded sweatshirt... of course what follows about sent me through the roof...

so... I turned around to flush... and my TP dropped head first into the swirling poo water!! I panicked so I threw my hand in after my prized possession and immediately slid the battery cover off (very slippery when wet and pooey!) and slammed the battery off!!

Well after blow drying it for ten minutes and letting it dry in front of my dehumidifier for an hour I examined my TP... all the water damage sensors were untouched... so I decided to try my luck... it worked!! Now I'm not making any claims... except for maybe luck... but damn!

BTW... I scrubbed it down with massive amounts of rubbing alcohol to rid me of perpetual poo hand... any further ideas for cleaning my TP without wrecking it??

Oh... and I do have insurance... which is probably the only thing that saved me from having a heart attack after the swirling horror of poo!!

It's stories like this that make me not want to file an insurance claim! My luck I'd get your poo phone!

Great save though, I think I would have went fishing with something other than my hand....but whatever works for you.

Re: Watch out for hoody pockets!! umm... and toilets...

I think I just threw up a bit in my mouth...

That is another one of my nightmares!! I always check to make sure my phone is secure before I undo my pants and before I get up!

But I would still somehow claim that thing. The fact that it at one time was in poop water and later touches your head just bothers me.

Re: Watch out for hoody pockets!! umm... and toilets...

sorry to say but your "touch poo" has poo water inside, you can get the outside clean using a lysol wipe but as for inside the poo germs arestill gonna be there. i would just claim it, let them worry about the poo...

well i woudlnt say people's hands or sweat that gets in the cracks of phones is less "germy," but yeh id claim the phone because either way water still got in it and will eventually take its toll. Call the $50 a learning experience.
