Today, after dropping my phone in the toilet, I left it dismantled outside in my backyard to dry hoping it could be saved. I forgot about the phone as well as the sprinklers that were scheduled to go off. FML

I was gonna ask why you wouldn't expect rain or anything, but then I saw your location.

Rice my friend, rice. Sidenote: Wouldn't the sun possibly cause the phone to "steam" instead of drying it out?

Couldn't you set an alarm for when the sprinklers.... oh.

I mean, the sprinklers would be ineffective if the phone was already ruined. Most phones need to be submerged to be heavily damaged. Only certain parts of phones are sensitive to water, which are generally internal, so assuming it worked after the water torture, it may be fine. P.S. Especially if you didn't throw your phone in the grass, like I assume you didn't.

Yeah, but they disassembled it before sprinkling it - so the sprinkler water definitely did get inside the phone.

Now, repairs are going to be very expensive. Expect to get ... soaked.

That wasn't even a pun?

Yes it was. Soaked has two meanings in this case. It is indeed a pun.

I think some people use 'soak' to mean paying high taxes or imposing heavy charges. It's definitely not widely used enough to be a pun that many people would understand.

Despite being completely wet, she is not getting turned on ..oh wait we were talking about a phone

Use silica gel packets from shoe boxes and such to absorb the moisture from your phone. You don't have to take them out of the package.

bucket of rice, man

Why the hell would you put it outside? Put it in a bowl of dessicant or something.
