I put my $700 work phone through the washer yesterday. It seemed fine when I found it, but I stuck it in rice overnight anyway. Today it seems to be working without any issues at all. Yay for not having to spend that kind of money on a new phone!
After reading the details and seeing the picture of the California man who killed multiple people and shot up an elementary school, I am not at all shocked at the following facts:
I like to think I’m not gullible, but when I look back at my Sephora purchase history I see so many things I’ve tried that didn’t work at all. So many products promise the moon and deliver jack shit.
