Disclaimer: This is not about the movie titled same as above which released recently. This is only about my tragic story of losing two cellphones in a period of two weeks.
And the main aim of this post is to get sympathy/justify myself over losing the cellphones constantly 😦 🙂
Its, 2nd month into final semester of my engineering course and everything was going well till last two weeks. Lots of free time, total freedom in class, movies in theater on first day, cultural programs for free, roaming throughout the city ,deciding to do project ourselves, hitting the gym to name a few..
The trouble started when one day, my cell wont switch on all of a sudden. It was dead. That weekend, I went to s.p road and had taken the cell along thinking that I will take it for servicing from there. But, I didn’t. The cell was in bag. But when when I checked my bag the next day, it had performed Houdini trick to escape from there 😦
Fortunately, I had taken the SIM out, thereby not resulting in loss of contacts.
I borrowed my aunt’s cellphone since she hardly uses it and started using it, thinking to return it as soon as I get the new one. Each time I returned home with cell inside my pocket, I used be so relieved. (I can’t imagine how people live in Mumbai/Kashmir where losing life itself is such a common thing).
But then, TRAGEDY stroke again yesterday 😦
I was going to my sister’s house along with my aunt and cousin using daily pass facility of BMTC buses. I boarded a bus at east end circle,jayanagar. The bus was not crowded at all.. No one was standing in the bus except for near door.. There were some 6-7 guys standing there. As soon as I boarded the bus, I was not given the space to enter into it. I was being pushed around by them and was also asked to go inside by the same “gentlemen”. I was totally pissed at that time. Then, I somehow managed to get inside . As soon as I got inside, I checked my pockets and POOF, my cell was GONE 😦
No one had left the bus yet . But fortunately for those “gentlemen”, next stop had come in a moment just after I cried for help. Me and my cousin got down and tried to call but cell was already switched off. I saw some suspicious men out of who got down but I was totally helpless. Even with the thief’s being present in front of me, I couldn’t do a thing.
Now, losing the two cellphones in the period of two weeks, who can I blame it on ? I have no answer for that. I can only wish that same thing doesn’t occur to me again. ( I am going for minimum priced second hand B/W set this time. Help me find it if possible 🙂 )
I am going to give some advice on how you could prevent this. I am not using them anyway 🙂
1. You should keep the cell in your shirt pocket.
2. Use a belt to hang it.
