    Default Cell Phone

    I feel like a dumb azz. Came in this evening, stripped down and tossed my jeans into the laundry basket. You know where this is going, right? Anyway, decided to do the laundry. Later I couldn't find my phone. Looked all over then thought, "O Crap". Went down to the washer and sure nuff, there was my phone still in my Jeans pocket. My phone is nice and clean, but a might dysfunctional. Got a hair dryer blowing on it for several hours now. Guess we'll see if it ever wants to work again, but I have my doubts. Worse part is this is not the first time. Did it again three years ago.

    Barry, phones don't swim No joking here though. Expensive calculator, very functional sucker. Plug into computer, machine type controllers, contact NASA. Get the picture? Technician lays $$$calculator on tray near sluice way of my machine. Oh yeah. 1000 gal coolant tank. Machining coolant isn't just water, synthetic lubricants and anti-rust inhibitors. Luckily, the calculator makes it out of the tank via 4 foot wide chain link conveyor belt. Could have come like pea gravel..

    LPS saves the day. I've got can out in the garage and can check on the correct name. It's electrical spray, cleans contacts, switches and all that stuff. Maintenance Foreman took the covers off and sprayed it clean, a real bath with the spray, like dripping wet. Clean, he used light air to blow it dry. $$$calculator works like brand new.

    You know, depending on how pricey your cell phone is, they have insurance for them. Yep. MC works construction and has his insured. He's kinda clumsy You know, them cell phones don't bounce from a 50 foot drop. They don't take to being run over by a truck either.

    Get a bowl full of rice and open your phone up,and put into rice. May take up to 3 days for it to dry out.
