How much do you love your cellphone?

The BBC carries a story this afternoon about a 26 year old passenger on a train in France, who dropped his cellphone into the toilet. He tried to fish it out, only to become trapped.

“He came out on a stretcher, with his hand still jammed in the toilet bowl, which they had to saw clean off,” said Benoit Gigou, a witness to the man’s plight.

    Sounds like they’ve updated the trains in France. It used to be that if you dropped something in a train’s toilet, it would hit a railroad tie. Travellers were discouraged from using toilets while the trains were in station.

    Did they saw his hand or the toilet bowl “clean off”?

    I certainly don’t love my cell enough to lose a hand…a finger maybe.
