Poor Luke Fitzgerald is phone-less this week after jumping into an ice bath with his phone in his pocket. We got chatting about our own technological disasters, put the call out to the listeners of The Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show and it turns out that they are quite clumsy. Now, we don't want to laugh at other people's misfortunes but some of these are gave us a bit of a chuckle.
Was painting when phone rang. Took it out of my pocket and fell straight into the tin of paint. The funny thing is, it was still ringing and it in the tin of paint.
Sitting down I placed a cup of tea on the floor just in front of me. Leaned forward elbows on knees to text? I dropped the phone into my cup of tea. Darr n in Cork
Hi Ian, love the show. Last week the wife was washing my work trousers left the work phone and my phone in the pockets both of them got destroyed. The work phone was only brand new .
Technology fail. My friend dropped her iPhone off her bed and it smashed into her iPad cracking both screens
Phone down toilet. Pint of water over laptop and lots of phones lost. :-( Yvonne, Cork.
Hi Ian, I had a really bad cold and was blowing my nose in the bathroom. Suddenly I turned into Michael Jordan and got a perfect shot throwing my tissue into the toilet from the door. Then I realised it made a v big "plop" looked down and the tissue was still in my hand! My Samsung phone was in the bottom of the bowl! Miraculously it never stopped working! Tom Mullingar
Phone fell into toilet whilst I was vomiting. Needless to say it never recovered.
