The time when mobile phones only served the purpose of connecting people together is long gone. Now, the phone is an integral part of our lives and combined with the Internet, it’s impossible to stay away from our cherished gadget for long. So, what exactly happens when one loses their phone? Whether not being able to find the phone for a few minutes or losing it completely — the ‘trauma’ surrounding it is quite severe. For some, it’s nothing but a panic attack — losing all contacts and memorable photos and videos; for others who’ve lost it temporarily, you can think of it as a minor anxiety attack instead.
Recently, on Twitter, people started sharing their own mobile losing experiences and it led to a sad but funny trend. So, if you think you are the only one with sad phone losing tales, don’t worry. Let these tweets reassure you that there are others in the same boat too.
Of course, the pain of losing an expensive and important gadget is very disappointing, these stories, nevertheless has left many in splits. Sample these:
