hmm... I think you'd have a different reaction...

Reminds me of a dairy farmer. He's giving a friend a tour. As they are standing in the milking parlor, the farmer whips out his hanky as he sneezes. Unfortunately as he's pulling out the hanky, a few dollars escape too... and they fall into the muck pit. Now, this farmer is well known for being frugal. More than frugal, he's just downright cheap.

The farmer's buddy, knowing how cheap the farmer is, look at they money and laughs. "Looks like that's gone."

"Nope," says the farmer, as he pulls out a $20 and drops it into the muck pit.

"WTF are you doing? Throwing good money after bad?"

The farmer smiled and look at his buddy.

"You didn't think I was going into that pit for a couple of dollars, did you?"

I traveled to Richmond once to pick up a truckload of items I won in a Gov auction, and I had all the contact info on my cell phone. Within about 30 seconds of checking in to my hotel, I dropped my Nokia into the toilet and within .0009 of a second I had snatched it out. It was not a $700 phone but back in those days the monthly bills were about $700 lol.

I snatched the battery out and baked the phone with a hair dyer for 20-30 mins and somehow it came back to life :mp:

Stylo 3 has exceptionally long battery life. Takes a while to fully charge but once you get to 100% youre good to go for hours

A friend had a similar accident.... however, after she had retrieved it, she rinsed it off.... I was tempted to suggest a microwave to dry it.

Thank God in my case I had not yet used the toilet so it was relatively clean water
