I find myself stranded without my phone's charger, and a phone which is already beeping with hunger.
Eventually my phones ceases to protest, and three long days pass as it sits motionless and grey.
On the third day though, I encounter someone with a spare phone.
"Just pop your sim card in," they say. "There's plently of battery and I don't ever use it."
"Oh boy!" I think. "Three whole days of having my phone off. I'll be bombarded with messages and missed calls!"
Two days later, I get a text.
"Bollocks," I think.
