This Oops of the Week features the Samsung Galaxy S5:
It belongs to a brick mason contractor. Working on the new Market St & Main St buildout in Chattanooga, he climbed the first level of scaffolding when he received a text from his teenage daughter. It was a picture of her new boyfriend. He dropped the phone in shock. The S5 fell to the ground (about an 8 ft drop) as our customer dove to try to catch it, barely hanging onto the beam he was standing on. It bounced off his fingertips and crashed onto dirt below, landing face up, still working perfectly – displaying the boyfriend’s picture in bright vivid color!
He groaned at the picture but then breathed a sigh of relief that at least he hadn’t broken his phone as he began to climb down. Once on the ground, he went to retrieve the fly-away phone, only to find that a big black crow was attacking the phone! Talk about ANGRY BIRDS! 😛
(He insisted the bird was attacking the picture of the boyfriend that had still displayed, but we cannot confirm this.) However, it had pecked it’s beak several times into the screen, hence the look of the screen.
We were able to fix the screen, while he waited, in less than 30 minutes, good as new.
While waiting, our customer used his tablet to enroll his daughter into a popular all-girls prep school, here in Chattanooga 🙂 Seems everyone was happy…except maybe the daughter.
Now before you judge this dad as overreacting, here’s the pic his daughter sent:
