It’s doubtful that anybody has every written a blog post featuring the best 10 places to drop your phone. There isn’t a good place to drop your phone, ever. So, don’t do it. Easier said that done, right?
With the KardShark Phone Grip Wallet you’ll never drop your phone. Well, maybe if you threw it at a bear while retreating on a hike, but that isn’t really a drop. That’s more of a throw. Here are 10 places you definitely should not drop your phone in reverse order.
#10 While Searching for Cards and Cash
One embarrassing time and place to drop you phone is when you are ready to pay and you are searching for cards and cash in your wallet, purse, or pocket. You fumble for your wallet or a way to pay and voila the phone gets dropped from the counter, your pocket, wherever. Even if your phone survives the fall any normal person would feel awkward, inconveniencing others in line. Oh wait, are you still the person writing a check at the grocery store?
#9 Dropping Your Phone on Public Transportation
You know how many shoes have walked there before you got on the bus or train? No, you don’t. The other thing you don’t know is when did they last clean that floor. Would you eat a dropped cookie off that floor? No! Well, don’t drop your phone there either. Here is a scenario to think about: woman walks dog. Dog does job on grass. Woman forgets bag to pick up said job. Inattentive man child steps in dog job and tracks some onto the train. You get the idea?
#8 Dropping Your Phone on an Airplane
Planes are getting more and more crowded with fewer spaces for you and your stuff. If you drop your phone on a plane you have no guarantee that you’ll even see where it goes. You know when you are working up the courage to ask a person to change seats with you or your partner so you can sit next to each other? Well, imagine asking the nearest 5 strangers to look under their seats for your phone. It takes tenfold the courage.
#7 Dropping Your Phone on a Grand Stone Staircase
First, I need to share this public service announcement. Don’t text while walking down stairs. I’ve done it. I thought I was being careful and I ended up sliding down the carpeted stairs on my knees, all the way to the landing. I didn’t get hurt, luckily. That was the last time. Okay, it happened one more time later that day, but that was the last time.
Even if you’re not texting you could drop your phone while walking down the stairs, especially a grand staircase like the stone stairs as shown in the Banff Spring Hotel. You know if you did drop your phone on those stairs, your phone’s survival isn’t the issue. You’re pride will be destroyed as the entirety of the hotel entrance will turn their eyes toward you.
#6 Phone Face Plant in Bed
Awe – the classic phone face plant. Who among us has not laid down for a nap or woke in the morning and grabbed the phone to check email, catch up on the news or share pictures with friends and intelligence agencies. Then, as you grow tired the bodies naturally tendency is to let your arms and hands go. The next thing you know, SPLAT. The phone has kissed your face without even asking. We all feel violated in those moments.
#5 Dropping Phone While Taking Pictures on Rooftop Deck
This one is embarrassing because there will be people watching The rooftop deck. This could be anywhere, the hotel, pool, or restaurant, bar, museum, or a lucky friend’s house. Here’s the scenario. You lean over a little to get that perfect picture. After all, you don’t want the rail in your picture. And then suddenly your phone is leaving the confinement of your hand. If you’re lucky your phone lands on the rooftop. If you’re unlucky it lands on the ground, down there. Either way, you pretend to not know what is going on and bend over to examine your shoe, quickly retrieving your phone while your hunched over. If it’s off the deck, you’ve got a bigger problem.
#4 Dropping Your Phone While Taking the Perfect Picture Out a Window
This is a continuation of the rooftop deck scenario. When your phone hits the ground from way up there it doesn’t matter whether it’s a deck or a window, you’re probably not going to recover your phone in one piece.
There has to be better ways to get peoples attention than to drop a phone on their head. That’s dangerous. Don’t do it. Get a Grip.
#3 Dropping Your Phone From the Gondola
I’m pretty sure that even if your phone survived the drop you’re not likely to search for it. If the window and rooftop deck scenario wasn’t extreme enough for you you might try the gondola. Here you can get way up high and drop your phone in the woods or in the snow never to be found again. The only advantage to this drop is that the nearest gondola neighbors probably won’t know you dropped your phone even though you’ve started screaming and panicking.
#2 Dropping your Phone Way Up High
This one has many variations: steep slopes, snow covered stairs, mountain summits, etc. Like the gondola drop you’re not likely to recover your phone from the slip that is certain to follow the phone drop. Worse yet it might be you slipping as you attempt to go after your falling phone.
Be careful out on your adventures. One way to be careful is to not drop your phone on snow covered stairs, at the top of a mount or over steep slopes. Reason being is your likely to slip as you attempt to go after it. Be safe. Get a Grip.
#1 Dropping Phone in Bathroom or Worse the Toilet
Ewwww. This one is the worst. Aside from the filth the stall isn’t a place for conversation. Yuk, very disgusting.
Imagine the message to your stall neighbor, “Uh excuse me neighbor, that is my phone there. Could you please hand it over to me. Oh yeah and could you please put the battery back in it, if you can find it. And if you don’t mind me asking can you please wash your hands first?”
Without a Phone Grip You’ll Drop Your Phone
