When you drop something
Posted 1/14/16
Have you ever had that moment when your heart just stops because you dropped something important to you?

I get this all the time when my psvita drops from a small distance.

It's perfectly fine tho I panic still...

Here my reaction

Lightly kick it before it drops to give it parallel momentum to the floor. It might cause more scratching but less breaking!

Dropped my phone on cement before but kicked it so it slid instead of dropped and it came out fine.

I recently had to get a new phone because my iPhone screen cracked, after I dropped it down the stairs. ;-; RIP iPhone.

DUDE IKR. Like if it's the last piece of pizza

Like if it's your whole Chinese takeout spilling all over the floor

They should invent clutz-safe rooms for otakus. The floors are sanitized and you have to walk in with rubber scrubs so that if anything drops you're fine.

Don't recall ever dropping anything I would consider important.

I usually stare for a few seconds, then panic.

My reaction is different if I realize I dropped it immediately or if I discover I dropped it hours later. For instance I've had the clasp on an expensive watch break so the watch fell off and I noticed it right away and was able to take the watch and get the clasp fixed...my sister's clasp on her fitbit let go and she didn't realize it had fallen off her wrist until hours (and miles) later since we were traveling. She called back to the rest area where she'd lost it, but no one ever turned it in and she was pissed because she lost several competitions she'd been in since she couldn't track her steps and also because she had to spend another $125 on a new one.

When I worked at the jewelry store, there were multiple occasions where women would come in with bracelets that needed the clasps fixed or asking if we could replace one they'd lost. I was shocked to discover some of the diamond tennis bracelets women were losing were in the over $10,000 range.

Fortunately, most of my old and valuable things are rather durable. That's how they survived for 100+ years.

I do remember when I dropped one of my grandma's Noh masks. Those things are 300+ years old. I freaked out when I thought a piece broke off from the mask. Turned out it had been broken in the past and someone glued it back on, so I didn't feel bad. It was an easy fix and the piece wasn't too big.

Definitely my wallet or phone. Whenever I hop into the car whilst driving, I suddenly pat my pockets as my heart stops for a moment!

Happens quite often, as I'm a forgetful person.

Make a sandwich

RIP sandwich.
