Butter Bonnie

Dear Apple,

You suck.

Sincerely, Bonnie Leishman

So today I was at market mall, shopping ( father thinks i was dropping off resumes...let's keep this our little secret), just doing what I do, when tragedy struck.  I was on my phone, and as per usual Butter Bonnie turned a little clumsy, and dropped it on the pavement.    AND IT BROKE.  A wide range of emotions followed this accident.  I do recognize that I'm partially to blame, but who makes a phone that shatters?  I mean really, they have to know that clumsy people use iPhones too.  So since I was at market mall, it was very convenient to pop into the Apple store to find out what the deal would be to get it fixed.  The guy that I talked to just shook his head when I showed it to him.  He's obviously seen a lot of people come in with the same problem, and then he told me it would cost $240 to fix the screen.  Bonnie doesn't have a job.  And does not want to pay $240 to fix a stupid phone.  Life sucks.

But enjoy my story through pictures.  This brought a little joy into my otherwise awful day.
1. The initial terror realizing what had happened.
2.I was so shocked, I turned as white as a ghost.
3. Then I realized that I needed to fix it.
4. Intense anger ensued.
5. So I had to figure out where an Apple store was to find out the fixage details.
6. And then I became furious at the idea of paying $240
7. Pretending to be positive. At least I have a phone.
And it still works....sorta.
8. Straight up wishing that someone would just take care of my problems.
9. HELP!
10. Tears were shed.
11. My bottom lip was quivering and sad.
12. I just want my iPhone back.

And to top it off, as I was doing this post, an Apple commercial came on for iPhones.

Seriously, life sucks.

between you and Scott, my opinion of the greatness of the iphone is greatly diminishing...

But you do look adorable. Even whilst wiping away tears.

Now now Bonnie... before we go knocking Apple too much here, need I remind you that the success of Apple Inc. (more specifically, the popularity of the iPhone) on the stock market has easily paid for most of what you own, your tuition, etc. The same applies for me. Don't hate the player, hate the score. I am not aware of any touchscreen phones that are indestructible. Just saying. I still love my iPhone and Apple, and there's a reason why it's $200+ to fix/replace. It's the best smartphone there is. Those are my 2 cents.

But if this makes you feel any better, I've now heard 4 different stories of people getting theirs fixed for free at the West Ed store.

Oh Apple. Why do you make such a breakable product? I have seen more broken iphones screens than any other cell phone screen. Oh Bonnie. Why would you drop the least drop-proof smart phone on the market? Oh Scott. The real reason that it costs $240 is not because it is a good phone. That is just a ridiculous conclusion. Such an argument is indisputably invalid and yet another example of the fallacious reasoning that bolsters apple users’ over-confidence in apple products.
