You would think that it could have lasted for nine more days. Apparently, that was too big of an ask.
It was to be a great Christmas present — a brand new, latest and greatest iPhone for Sue. We don't give extravagant presents like this, but there was a need, and I wanted this to be special.
When my iPhone 6 died, a main warning sign was that it became hot. Sue's same phone experienced this one day a few months ago but worked well since then. However, I figured its days were numbered, so I ordered a new phone, breaking the bank in the process.
The phone worked on Tuesday, ten days before Christmas.
Come Wednesday morning, the ninth day before, it was as dead as a doornail.
I decided that I would have to give her the phone early or she would be wanting to take the old one in for a new battery or whatever.
I texted Shauna about the possibility of them coming over for an impromptu supper to make a bit of an event of it since it would diminish Christmas Day a little bit.
Wouldn't you know? I texted to the family chat and not privately to Shauna.
Shauna alerted me to what I had done.
Aw crap again!
I ran into Sue's room shouting, "Don't read the family chat!"
Too late!!! 😬😽👎
So here we are.
