Mobile phone panic!

Have you ever misplaced your mobile phone? The panic that goes with that? Well I did yesterday.  We took the girls – dogs for a walk.  Usually I take a small back pack that I put my phone in along with asthma pump, dog bags etc.

Yesterday as it was cold I had several layers, gloves, etc and I had my phone in my pocket.  I had left the back pack at home.

We got home from our walk, I made breakfast then I went to check my phone as we had some items for sale on some facebook groups.

HORROR – I couldn’t find it anywhere.  I checked the house from top to bottom.  Went over my walk several times.  I even enlisted some children in the street to look for it.

My heart was racing, I was in this horror world I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy.

This took 2 hours – 2 hours I will never get back!

I came home dejected thinking I should then call my phone provider.  I had a thought, what did I do when I came home from the walk.  I remember taking something out of the freezer for Sunday dinner.  I opened the laundry door and stood there for a few minutes then my eyes went down to something on the side of the freezer.

It was black, it was my phone!  The clip had a magnet on it and it was hanging there on the side of the freezer.

What a relief.

So this week I am buying a hot pink cover for my phone.  Easier to see and  also don’t have phone in the pocket as its easier to fall out. Oh I did go and tell the kids I had found the phone.  Left out the bit where I found it 🙂

  1. Oh yep was nodding along with this post Bree….! Glad you found it but it is horrid. Mine has been playing up for weeks and I still haven’t managed to get in to check it out at a Telstra shop………if it dies completely I will be feeling the same as you were

  2. Yikes, what a scare! Glad you found it! It’s actually a good reminder to back up our phone contents on the computer periodically. My iPhone seems to do it automatically on iTunes whenever my phone is connected to my computer.

  3. I could relate as I just got a new phone and case. My old phone case is orange in colour and my new phone case is grey. Guess what! When I looked for my phone, I was still looking for an orange case and could not find it, even though my phone was just right in front of me.
