This Is What You Get For Being Cheap

J’s been able to do a lot of the repairs around the house, e.g., plumbing, electronics, etc, saving us lots of money.  His successes apparently went to his head, and made him believe that he could replace his 3G iphone battery instead of spending money, upgrading to a new phone (while everyone and their grandmother has an iphone 5 these days).  I just thought, whatever you want to do, I’m not going tell you otherwise.

He looked up tutorials online on how to replace the phone, got his new batteries, and set out to replace the battery last night.  I left him to his own devices, and went to bed.  I woke up this morning…

J {still bleary eyed}: “I have to get a new phone.”

Me {laughing out loud}: Hahaha…you broke your phone!  That’s what you get for being cheap!

      He wanted a phone with Windows OS because it offers what he needs. I was playing around with the phone last night, and it’s a cool phone.
