Today, after taking my clothes out of the washer, I noticed at the very bottom of the washer my boyfriend's USB stick I found a couple of days ago. The USB stick contains his English essay, and his novel he has been working on for almost six months. FML

You can just dry it off in the sun... don't use it for about a week so that it dries thoroughly, then it should work just fine. I really don't understand what all the fuss is about.

Yeah, it should still work once it dries out (flash memory=no moving parts). Should be a lesson to your boyfriend, too—clean out your own damn pockets!

Show it anyway

Can't imagine how such important things won't have another backup somewhere. At least on his computer, cause the stick is a type of back up, so no problem.

Exactly, if he doesn't have a backup then he's a total idiot.

How you uh, how you comin' on that novel you're working on? Huh? Gotta a big, uh, big stack of papers there? Gotta, gotta nice litte story you're working on there? Your big novel you've been working on for 3 years? Huh? Gotta, gotta compelling protaganist? Yeah? Gotta obstacle for him to overcome? Huh? Gotta story brewing there? Working on, working on that for quite some time? Huh? Yea, talking about that 3 years ago. Been working on that the whole time? Nice little narrative? Beginning, middle, and end? Some friends become enemies, some enemies become friends? At the end your main character is richer from the experience? Yeah? Yeah? No, no, you deserve some time off. plus I dont think he should be worried about back up...since USBs are typicaly used for backup

i love you hahahahaaa

I too love how you were able to make a comment I'd made almost word for word an hour beforehand. Such genius!

i gotta admit upon proper comparison... i love vegans more! (did i fix it n therefore keep attention away from the fact i rarely scroll down n read all the comments?)

AHAHAHA! Stewie is love.

USB sticks are flash memory, just don't plug it in until it's been thoroughly dried (hair dryer) and you'll be fine

@flying_vegan I didnt see yours so you cant blame me...plus I responded to #1 to be on top HAHA! I WIN YOU LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

VICTORY IS YOURS!

ROFLMAO nice reference

the USB will still work 100%, electronic only breaks in water when electricity are running through them, dry it up carefully it's fine

That usually doesnt kill them. It should still work. Just let it dry first. YDI for posting this.

that sucks...first

I hope u don't say that in real life.

You can just dry it off in the sun... don't use it for about a week so that it dries thoroughly, then it should work just fine. I really don't understand what all the fuss is about.

What's a USB stick?

YDI for not checkin all the pockets first

No, I think HE deserves it for not checking his own pockets.

He definitely deserves it for not looking in his pockets. If it was so crucial why leave it in pocket?

He doesn't deserve anything. His girlfriend was the one carrying it around in HER pockets without giving it back to him.

Yea read the fml, it says she picked it up and found it in HER laundry..

hmm... did you even check if it was stil working? it should work if you wait for the memory stick to dry completely inside before you test it again.... oh, and btw YDI

Don't you mean your ex-boyfriend?? ;)

Yeah, it should still work once it dries out (flash memory=no moving parts). Should be a lesson to your boyfriend, too—clean out your own damn pockets!

Sorry, but flash drives have, in my experience, proven to be waterproof. Also, I can't imagine his novel is any good anyway.

why would u say that last part. u are rude

this shouldn't be a huge deal..just let it dry out before you plug it in again...i've washed mine once or twice and it still works just fine. Oh, it also wouldn't matter if i lost it because I have my data backed up in more than one place!!!
