First world problems. They really got Munsoned.

How does a ring that has allegedly never been off your finger in 6 years just 'slip off' unnoticed while you're brushing your son's hair?

Those poor babies!

I'm pretty sure that going without a cellphone is down in the constitution as cruel and unusual punishment.

Farking hipster douche bags.

My father dropped his phone in a bucket of milk years back. It kept working for a long time after. The phone that fell in the manure lagoon was never recovered.

People who own phones are hipsters now?

Well that does it. Impeach Obama!

I'd be sad if I lost this in the hay.
 
2013-11-01 12:11:57 PM
If your phone is so smart, why is it lost?
 
2013-11-01 12:12:12 PM
When I open my hayfarm (never),  I'm going to install lockers for all the hipsters to put their cellphones and piercings into before they enter.

I love the fact that people pay to pick their own fruit, putting professional fruit-pickers out of business. Why do hipsters douchetards hate Mexicans?

I think the bigger holocaust here is that some dude named his kids Ayden and Micah.

PUKE.

Actually it is, and for far more people than you would imagine.

Anyone who has an iphone and lives in a city = "hipster".

Oh okay. Whatever, I guess.

JMacPA: People who own phones are hipsters now?


Yeah, this. Almost everyone I know has an iPhone, and most are not what I would characterize as an "urban hipster."

Most are suburban dwellers with houses and kids. They spend their time at soccer games and watching "Game of Thrones" and "The Walking Dead," not hanging out debating the merits of various hipster preferences.
 
2013-11-01 12:16:41 PM
You could try getting someone to dial your number when your phone is lost in a haylocaust..
 
2013-11-01 12:17:33 PM
You guys know that with the Find My iPhone app, you can make your phone scream like a hipster eating unsustainably farmed quinoa ?

But they only watch them ironically.
 
2013-11-01 12:18:33 PM
I have a hard time believing that story.

She went back the next day, and the phone still had enough power to send a signal?
 
2013-11-01 12:18:52 PM
WTF.  Why is this news?  I'd expect such a total puff piece from the East Podunk Gazette trying to fill some more inches of column on a dubious "local interest" piece, but The Washington Post?

I'm not sure what's stupider, that some wrote an article about "people sometimes lose stuff" or that everyone on Fark seems to think hayrides are packed with hipsters sipping Pabst.

Hipster
Hipster
Hipster

The word has lost all meaning.

Quick question...the organic, free-range chicken...can you tell us more about the chicken? Did he have hobbies? You know, we'll be right back, we're going to go check out the farm. Be right back.

I lost my iphone last weekend.  I left it on someone's couch and was too drunk (or irresponsible) to realize otherwise.  As someone who doesn't have a landline and put all his phone numbers/addresses in said iphone - it can be a little personal "holocaust"?  Odd word, but let's say the feeling of pure panic was genuine and it ruined my half day looking for it.

Yeah, yeah, 1st world problems.
 
2013-11-01 12:23:31 PM
I hope you lose your phone, subby.

I have a dumb phone and still freak a bit when I lose for 10 minutes.
 
2013-11-01 12:24:38 PM
And like it is totally cool to lose your Samsung Galaxy S4. Sure thing.

That's the great thing about android phones. You can sync up all your stuff with google, so it doesn't matter which of the hundreds of basically identical, bland, joyless android phones you use, all your stuff is available.
 
2013-11-01 12:27:46 PM
My favorite twist in the regular plot of  dipshiats who get seperated from their smartphones in bars and airplanes and on top of their cars and (I presume) on hayrides, is that they inevitably say their phone was "stolen" by some bad person after they lose track of it. Its as if the world's populace is supposed to stop whatever it is doing and locate these bumblefarks who abandon their phones in public places. Otherwise its theft to find a phone.
 
2013-11-01 12:27:59 PM
is a country farm pretty much a oxymoron subby?
 
2013-11-01 12:29:09 PM

Guess how I know you've never been on a real farm in your life.

I lost the remote to the TV the other night for 14 minutes. You care.

The iPhone back up is even easier, and I assume that someone that loses an iPhone will get another iPhone.

Just like the story of the guy leaving his wallet on his trailer, I don't get why people do things like this.

Technically, if you pick up something that isn't yours, that's theft. Just because you don't know who the owner is doesn't magically make you the owner, the precedent of Finders v. Keepers notwithstanding. Certain exemptions apply, such as if you are following salvage laws.

What if I pick up litter people drop and put it into trash cans? Is that theft too?

No. The only time the word holocaust should be used is to describe a literal holocaust.

Technically, yes. That's not the same thing as saying that you'll get in trouble for it, but the principle remains. It's a pretty easy concept. If something doesn't belong to you, and you take it without permission, that's theft. Really, I'm surprised people have trouble understanding such a clear, simple concept.
 
2013-11-01 12:36:52 PM
For farks sake Subby not everyone is a god damned hipster. Stop ruining a great word to describe a very small set of jackoffs.

Kind of like the time I picked up a phone I saw fall off a moving car, but couldn't return it because it was a cheap track phone with no info of who owned it and was already falling apart in our hands, so we pitched it.  Had a neighbor drop her iPhone off the back bumper of her truck, she got her phone back.  We let her know, she may want to invest in an Otterbox.

I wonder if there wouldbe a market for a retractable line and clip setup that could be attached to a remote.

So Id still be OK throwing away cell phones I find then?

Well, considering a lot of people have their entire lives on their phone as well as their private info, it's sort of understandable.

And, before you laugh, you're on the internet; and if someone wants to know about you, they will. Not something that I agree with, to be honest, but I can't really cover the sun with my finger.

/We would need a lot of gingers

I agree.  Blame Subby.

And use of the word "hipster"?  really?  You suck, Subby!
