I went to get a screen protector for my phone. The guy sold me an upgrade to a tempered glass protector. He demonstrated how effective it was by pulling out a phone and pounding it with a hammer! It didn’t even make a scratch. Sold! As soon as I got home, I beat the glass like it was a piñata. The glass is still intact but the phone is now dead. Great.
I hate scratches on my phone. Call me OCD if you’d like but scratches on the screen drive me crazy so I always get a screen protector. Always. At first, I tried doing it myself. Why should I pay someone $25 to put one on when I was perfectly able to do it myself?
I got the protector and followed the directions to the letter. All went well except for one thing. There were bubbles everywhere! I checked out the trouble shooting guide. It said it was normal and to use a credit card edge to push the bubbles out of any edge of the screen.
Yeah, right. It’s like more bubbles appeared the harder I worked on it. It looked the same as when someone tries to tint the windows in their car themselves. Bubbles everywhere. I would have to push the car over a cliff. Sure, I would probably go to prison for insurance fraud but at least the bubbles would be gone.
It would probably be better if I took it to a professional but when you’re OCD, you can’t be held responsible for your actions. I would have no choice. The memory would linger for the rest of my life. I would have to buy a new car and have the film installed by a professional before going to jail.
I’m not sure what the secret is. I think I’ll need to be employed at one of these joints to figure out how they do it. Plus it would be fun to take a hammer to a phone that doesn’t belong to me. In the meantime, are you interested in buying a dead phone? The glass is perfect.
