A guy stole my cell phone and threatened my mom!

Ok the title of this blog sounds worse then it actually is. Today I was shooting in Santa Monica, CA and while carrying three backpacks and a wardrobe bag unbeknownst to me I dropped my cell phone in the middle of the street. When I got into the studio I realized my phone was missing. I ran out to my car thinking I left my phone inside but alas it wasn't there. I figured I probably just threw it in one of my many bags and I'd find it later. When I got home I had emergency emails from my mom asking me if I was Ok.

Apparently, a man found my phone in the middle of the street and dialed my most recent call (which of course is my mum mum since I call her every single day) and he demanded money from her. She couldn't understand most of what he was saying because he was speaking spanish. My mom just kept telling this guy that the phone belonged to her daughter and wanted to know where I could met up with him to get the phone back. That idea freaked him out and he started screaming "Fuck you! Fuck you! You are going to call immigration on me aren't you?"

Good times.

So I had my phone temperately shut off in fear that his whack job was going to call the entire world on my dime OR WORSE use up my text messages. I trucked to the local AT&T store where I walked out with a shiny new cell phone and blue-tooth ear peice for the discounted price of $505!!!

Why does this shit always happen to me?

It happens because the universe is conspiring to make sure you always have material for your act! And having material for your act is what will keep you successful!

Perhaps someone who loses their phone that often should stop buying such fancy expensive ones. Just sayin'.

Why does this stuff happen? It all goes back to a Henry Adams quote, "Chaos is the law of nature; order is the dream of men." Just go with the chaos; eventually you will learn all the lessons that nature intends for you. Unfortunately, most of nature's lessons end with death...life has such a morbid sense of humor that way. I guess humor is important to have after all...good that you have a lot of it!

Why the good lord would you buy a phone for $500? You might lose this one too. Dang....even an iPhone is only $200.

Also, I'm European, so I think "contracts" are numbskull cocking stupid fucking wastes of trees. However. If one must sign a contract, I would recommend only signing a one year, never a two.

One year's you can find at third party distributers - not like the branded Tmobile store, but the little mexican taqueria with mobile phone shop attached that sells for Tmobile, Att and Verizon. They get to sell the one year contracts.
