Not quite as planned...

Whelp. Yesterday sucked

Woke up thinking it was going to be a great day since it was the start of one of my favorite months but I was definitely proved wrong. 

Proof it sucked:

Yes Ladies, that would be my beloved iPhone with a cracked shattered screen. 

It happened when I went to put change in the meter for class and it slipped out of my hand and landed facedown onto a sharp rock. (Is this the fitness gods' way of punishing me for not walking to class?! Probably.) 

This is the offending rock, yes, the itty bitty tiny one in the middle of the picture. It's hard to think something so little could do so much damage! But don't worry, I kicked it for good measure. 

I didn't really panic because, well, it already happened and the only thing I could do now is to try and fix it and move on. So I figured I would just leave work a little early and head to an AT&T store to get a new one.

Yeah, the answer I got was "Well, you could slap a screen protector on it and hope it lasts the 3 months until your upgrade is available. There's nothing else I can do".

Thank you for being so helpful  unhelpful.  You better believe I am not walking around with this shizz for 3 more months!! 

My experience led me to tweet this:

Feel free to add me on Twitter! @malpal801 :)

I got a response and now have an employee "assigned to my file".  She's been super nice so far but I'm still waiting to hear about what they can do to help me.

It was definitely one of the most frustrating days I've had in a while and I have a feeling today will be the same once I hear back from this AT&T representative, but hopefully she has good news!
And my good mood might be helped by the fact that the boy is on his way down here for the weekend:)

But before I go, a letter to the month of February:

Dear February,
I don't know why you hate me, but I would appreciate it if you could lay off for awhile. You know, since $500 is quite a bit of cash to be dropping ON THE FIRST DAY. Don't worry, I still love you. It's just that right now I'm not liking you very much.

In other words, Shape up or ship out.


Make sure to hold your phones a little tighter tonight ladies;) And thank goodness it's almost Friday!

(J/K I totally know that material possessions are not everything, but I am gonna miss this little baby. She was the first "big kid" thing I ever bought all by myself!)

Pink Kisses & Wishes,
