My 13 year old son has bad phone karma.
This year he has dropped his cell phone in the toilet...and in a storm drain.
The most recent folly was the storm drain last weekend.
His cell phone was in his pocket...and as he got into the car, it slipped out and fell onto the street and into the storm drain.
The look on his face was tragic.
Then the desperation kicked in. We attempted to retrieve the phone with a golf-ball grabber thingy, a rake, and we even considered holding my 8 yr old upside down and lowering him into the sewer...
but, no phone was retrieved.
The last act of desperation was a call to the City of McKinney the next morning.
And lo and behold, the city send out...Storm Drain Sal.
A petite man who slid into the storm drain man hole and saved the phone...which still worked, amazingly.
Wonder what else he's saved out of our city sewers?
