February 9, 2012Idiot Arrested for Reporting Broken iPhone
I know that these days, a lot of people can’t live without their cellphones. Back in the day, a phone could only make and receive calls and send text messages. Over the last 5 years, smartphones have taken over become mainstream. It’s almost weird when you find out someone is still using old school style cellphones. I also have a smartphone but I’m not obsessed with it as some people are with their phones. This one guy was so engrossed into this iPhone that when it broke
he considered it enough of an emergency to call 911 not once but FIVE TIMES.
Ok, I get that it sucks not having a cellphone for a short time. Your battery fails, you forget it at home, or maybe it malfunctions. Shit happens. MOVE ON. Is it so much of a concern that you’d called 911 about this? I’m glad this guy got arrested. His five calls could’ve cost the life of somebody who really needed help and all for a broken iPhone.
