How I Lost My iPhone Charger When I Went On Vacation

July 20, 2012 · Posted in Technology 

Recently I went with my family to the Bahamas for a 7 day vacation. All 5 of us – me, my mom, my dad, my brother, and my sister – went together. This might sound like a nice gesture on my parent’s part, but think about the fact that all of us were expected to spend every second of the day together and be cramped in a tiny hotel room. After thinking of it that way, it’s much more likely that this vacation would end in a disaster. But my mom wanted me to stay positive. She said to stop expecting the worst outcome and just go with the flow. I wanted to keep my mom happy because this was here only week of vacation time from her job until winter, so I decided to suck it up and just enjoy the trip. But things changed when I lost my iPhone charger before we even made it to the Bahamas.

It might not seem like a big deal, but I just got my iPhone and I’ve started to depend on it for a lot lately. I didn’t actually realize that my iPhone charger was gone until I started unpacking all my stuff later that night. I started off very calm because I figured it would turn up by the time I finished emptying my bag. Maybe it was just stuck on the bottom or it got lost in one of the many pockets of my luggage. But that didn’t happen.

It was quite a chaotic experience. I was rummaging through all my stuff and throwing things all over my room going crazy because my charger wasn’t anywhere to be found. I basically threw a big temper tantrum in the middle of the hotel room. My parents tried to calm me down, but I couldn’t live without my iPhone for the next 7 days. What was I supposed to do when my phone died? I needed my iPhone charger now.

The next day, I was still upset because we couldn’t get to the store yet to buy a new charger. My parents wanted to spend the day by the pool because they were tired from the trip. They told me I had to wait until tomorrow to go to the store. So until then, I made it my goal to do everything I could to conserve my phone’s battery. Instead of turning to my phone for the time, I found a clock or I asked someone with a watch. And instead of spending my time playing with all the apps on my phone, I tried to just sit back and enjoy the day by the pool. But I knew that tomorrow I would have to ask the hotel manager about where I could go to purchase a new charger.

The next morning, the first thing I did was find the hotel manager to ask him where the nearest store was for me to get a new iPhone charger. I was worried he might not know, but I was pleasantly surprised to hear that he had a list of all the retail stores within a 10 mile radius of the hotel. Although the list mostly consisted of clothing stores, I finally found a store that would work for me – Best Buy. I got the directions and I was on my way to the store in my family’s rental car within a few minutes. I was back quick, and I was much happier than when I left. With my new iPhone charger, I was finally ready to sit back, relax, and enjoy my family vacation. I really hope this problem never arises again.
