A Couple of Murphy’s Laws of Cell Phones

1. Any new cell phone will be dropped and scratched immediately AFTER removing the protective plastic cover from the screen. Usually several days after one gets a phone and has spent those days wondering if the cover could be kept on permanently.

2. One will only remember to set a cell phone to vibrate when entering a meeting or move theater when the battery is about to die and no calls can be received.

3. If a cell phone owner owns an extra batter, AND remembers to charge it, it will be forgotten at work or home on only the days it is needed.

4. Important calls that are waited on all day only arrive when the battery is about dead, or when the only dead cell zone in the geographic area is about to be entered.
