So... I said to my husband "honey...gulp... my cell phone is not working" his reply "charge it and if it is still not working in the morning I'll take it in on my way home from work." I dare not tell him it went through the wash...how naive could I be thinking the cell phone company would not be able to detect my phone had been wet. Long story short...my husband walked through the door that afternoon with a new cell phone in his hand and a smile on his face...."it appeared your phone had somehow gotten wet"...so I confessed my story....got a replacement phone for free...had I known about the rice trick I certainly would have given it a try...cause I felt really...really...stupid...that is untill my husband said "have you seen my company gas card?" and then I didn't feel so bad....Have a great day everyone!
