A very powerful senior VP at our company came to rely very heavily on his CrackBerry.
One day, one of his assistants called me and said, "Can you come over right now?"
"What's going on?"
"Well, (Sr VP) is asking for you."
"Why is that?"
"He dropped his BlackBerry...in liquid."
"Yeah, he came back from the bathroom and said, 'Get someone from MIS over here, I just dropped my BlackBerry... in liquid.'"
I borrowed some latex gloves from the cafe downstairs and managed to back up the data. He was sheepish at first, but by the next day, he was already hounding us for the replacement unit.
Don't use your BlackBerrys in the bathroom, kids.
