A man on a commuter train leaving Grand Central Station pissed off everyone on the train because of his cell phone. Was he talking at the top of his lungs? No, not exactly. He dropped his cell phone into the train’s toilet and proceeded to stick his hand into the toilet in search of his phone–he got stuck. Authorities had to use the “jaws of life” to get him out.

“The toilets are aluminum so I imagine he was down on hands and knees with his shirt rolled up and hand and arm down inside, trying to flush out his cell phone.”
–Jim Cameron of the Connecticut Metro-North commuter council.

I think it’s safe to say that if you drop your phone into a toilet and you don’t see it, it’s the toilet’s phone. Your relationship with the phone is officially over. Deal with it. This is another reason to stick with the free phones that come with cell phone service and not buy the latest $500 phone. Although, I doubt that even a $500 price tag would encourage me to embark in a toilet search and rescue.
