So I am on vacation in Florida and went to the swimming pool and some silly lady left her iPhone on the tile swimming pool deck, about 10" from the edge of the pool, and I didn't see it and stepped on it and heard a crunching noise. I looked at the phone and didn't see any apparent damage but did hear a crunch. She is lucky I didn't kick the phone into the pool.
I didn't see the iPhone for 2 reasons: (1) it was partially hidden from view by a pool chair that the lady had pulled up to the edge of the pool but was still in the path of pedestrian traffic along the pool; and (2) as I entered the pool deck area with my pool bag, a lady in the pool called out to me due to recognizing the name of the school on my T shirt. I then stopped and talked to her and I was backing up when I stepped on the iPhone.
Why are people so careless with the most valuable piece of electronic equipment that most people own?????
By the way the phone owner got out of the pool and collected her iPhone and left without comment. However I feel if the iPhone was in any way damaged its her fault. What do you think?
