Let's just face it girls are taught from a young age she who cries the hardest gets the most attention and more likley to have said thing replaced by someone else faster. Surprised some douchemonger didn't run towards her saying "oh honey here's a phone for you, don't worry"

[–]SingAlong_Original 60 points61 points  (25 children)

Then she'll complain on how it's not an iPhone.

[–]_orion 28 points29 points  (24 children)

bring her an iphone and you'd hear "I wanted an android"

[–]Cashews4U 23 points24 points  (19 children)

Every girl I have met that owns a new or recent phone always has an iphone.

[–]needless_pickup_line 11 points12 points  (17 children)

No a girl I know just got a new Galaxy! NAWALT!!

[–]1Ill_mumble_that 7 points8 points  (15 children)

Point being, its still a trending and popular device that sets a fashion statement. You won't see women excited about say a a non-mainstream Windows phone or maybe the Nexus line of Android.

[–]Rienuaa 2 points3 points  (13 children)

Yo, I'm a girl and love my N5 (CM11 M9 atm).

[–]traw89 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Red Pill Women rock custom ROMs.

[–]Rienuaa 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I can't help it. CM11 is just so silky smooth.

Not a fan of Clockwork though, which is my recovery. I don't think TWRP is actually compatible with CM now, but I really liked using it on my previous phone.

[–]seznec 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I have an N5 with CM11 an TWRP. Definitely possible. Years ago TWRP was the recovery to use for activated encryption, especially for phones w/o SD card.

[–]SingAlong_Original 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Yup. Every girl I know does this. Complains about how their phone isnt an iPhone, or complain about how their iPhone can't multitask or have a more customizable interface.

[–]dragonfly224 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I think you mean anyone that buys and iPhone does that :p

[–]themoor 60 points61 points  (12 children)

Summed up: She lost part of her identity.

Not ALL women are as addicted as this, but most, if not all, certainly have become relatively dependent on it. A subset of these women, attention dependent too, have invested so much of their social-selves into it, losing a phone becomes a partial social-death.

Preliminary research on social media / iphones, etc. suggest people, women especially so, go through withdrawal symptoms similar to heroin addicts when kept from their devices over a day or more. Literally, nervousness, insomnia, panic attacks, etc.

That's where we are at fellas.

[–]Iupvoteforknowledge 29 points30 points  (1 child)

So true. I work in a bar and literally 90% of the women, both working, and those sitting at the bar are on their phone the entire time they are there. Never mind you are surrounded by real people, gotta have that validation box. I even call it that to their faces now. The only time they ever put it away is when someone of interest speaks to them.

[–]Cashews4U 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Or how the girls at my job can text in the kitchen in front of customers yet i get scolded for doing it in the backroom

[–]Chilezen 6 points7 points  (4 children)

Relavent

Study shows social media is similar to addictions.

I can't say I'm better because I get pretty bored at home if i haven't visited reddit for a while.

[–]spitfire7rp 4 points5 points  (1 child)

You can actually learn shit on reddit though depending on the sub, I dont think that ever happens on facebook or instagram

[–]Chilezen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I learn a lot about myself in the quizzes posted on Facebook.

/sarcasm

[–]1Ill_mumble_that 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Reddit is slightly different though. Its anon, unless yer posting to gone wild or something you actually have to say something useful to get up votes. Which is also why reddit and 4chan are mostly dudes. The women ALWAYS flock the sections of either site where they can get attention and its always the same places: the section for posting self nudes. Tits or GTFO is real. Women cannot get attention online within flashing their tits or using their sexuality as a sales pitch. Without their sex appeal they have nothing.

Then there's the fat ugly chicks. They can't even get attention posting faceless nudes, so they do shit like SRS because bad behavior is the only means they have of saying "look at me! I'm a misandrist!" But hey, negative attention is still attention, right?

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Anything can become addictive. It's not the thing that's addictive in itself; it's the neurochemicals released that get associated with that thing. That's how you get guys who are sexually turned on by their cars and literally take them on dates and fuck them. (Auto-erotica just took on a whole new meaning).

But social media is especially addicting, because of the combination of attention and change. Newness is addicting in itself and the ability to get constant updates fires off dopamine and has people hit the refresh button like monkeys on cocaine.

Cell phones are literally making addicts out of our whole society.

[–]RAGING_ERECTION 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I know a few guys like this too.

They can't even hold a conversation because they're checking their phones after every sentence.

Not only is it incredibly rude when you're trying to talk to someone it is also pretty pathetic.

[–]1Ill_mumble_that 2 points3 points  (2 children)

The key to text game is to keep it short and simple. Maximize the amount of sex you get from each girl for every text you send. If you're up texting the same girl all night instead of fucking her then you are doing it wrong.

[–]Endorsed ContributorRedBigMan 4 points5 points  (1 child)

What about if you're texting her while you're fucking her? Do you get bonus points?

[–]1Ill_mumble_that 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If you do it with with the phone inserted in one hole while you DP her you get double bonus points.

[–]TRiPdonGame 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Had a plate who lost any number of phones. Each time she lost a feature phone it was no big deal, but when she lost a smartphone with all its contacts and validation-engines, she flipped.

Literally as bad as, if not worse than, when she went off her amphetamines for a week. Would be funny if it weren't so sad.

[–]miniapples 169 points170 points  (19 children)

Probably left her phone unlocked and knows her nude photos and videos will be spread around the net.

[–]AnotherLostCause 77 points78 points  (0 children)

Nah. She'd get special victim status for that. She be telling people she was phone raped. More likely she is such a poor money manager that she doesn't know where she'll get the money for the next phone and her attention whoring will be on hold till then.

ps I upvoted you cause I still like how clearly you think.

[–]IamIncogneato 14 points15 points  (6 children)

This. 100%. A couple years ago, I was on a tour to one of the wonders of the world. We had a stop in a city and are back on a bus to the main destination. It's one of those limited time things, so there's strict rules. If your late, we're leaving you behind. We are about to take off. This girl maybe 20-22 runs up to the tour director in tears and is hysterical saying she lost her phone and needs to go back to get it. The guy was like fuck no, we have no time to waste. You can get a new phone, these people paid to see this and the window to see it is closing. Her mother gets involved screaming at the man. The girl starts getting violent and pushed past the man and runs off the bus. He is shocked, yells out five minutes or we're leaving you behind! He's cursing the whole time and apologizing to everyone. Girl is gone like 20 mins and the guy is livid and panicking. Everyone is pissed. We were all like what's so fucking important with her phone? Is she some spy or secret agent or something? Then it dawned on me, r/gonewild and sexting. My wife was even like this slut probably has a bunch of nudes on her phone. Bingo. The mother then runs back up saying she found her phone in her purse. The girl finally comes back about 25 min later, doesn't say shit to the tour guide or anyone else. No apology, just grabs her phone and starts texting. Fucking bitch nearly ruined everyone's trip. I was hoping we'd leave her ass behind.

[–]HelloJapan1 12 points13 points  (3 children)

why didnt the tour guide follow through with what he said? pathetic!

[–]Endorsed ContributorRedBigMan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Any bitch that falls behind gets left behind...

[–]IamIncogneato 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I don't know. We were all saying to go without her, but I think he felt too responsible for that, and it would have been messy to sort out especially when she doesn't have a phone. He was also an older man, like senior citizen, so that may have played a role.

[–]HelloJapan1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I wish he did leave and she be without a phone actually dealing with the consequences of her actions for once

[–]Esminia 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Girl is gone like 20 mins

If the guy had balls, he'd have made those girls learn some responsibility and leave them behind.

[–]reedrichardsstretch 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I'd be pissed at the mom. Wouldn't the mom's purse be high on the list of places to check for the phone? Guess stupid doesn't fall far from the tree.

[–]hedoesntget_it 8 points9 points  (0 children)

And her not so encrypted nor backed up Dogewallet that someone else set up for her.

[–]TheeRyanGrey[S] 17 points18 points  (0 children)

there's also that

ALL THOSE PHOTOS :(

[–]17 Endorsed Contributortrudatness 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Probably left her phone unlocked and knows her nude photos and videos will be spread around the net.

LOL whoops. All those naked pics no girl supposedly ever takes and sends are now out there being looked at by God knows who.

[–]infernalsatan 11 points12 points  (3 children)

Plot twist: The girl's name? Jennifer Lawrence

[–]Herrobrine 0 points1 point  (0 children)

4chan found her phone. We have to find him to get her phone back

[–]themanoftin 12 points13 points  (9 children)

A dude at my work did the same freaking thing. Why are people these days so freaking attached to their phones? It's seriously a plague on society. I will try to talk to a group of people- all on their phones. Ask a teacher for help- on phone. Go on a date- girl looks at phone.

[–]Ap_Ercino 11 points12 points  (8 children)

If a girl is on her phone while on a date with you, either she's bored and/or not attracted to you enough. Red flag.

[–]23490865243879526487 5 points6 points  (5 children)

Not necessarily true these days, some people are just genuinely addicted to their phones and can't give their full attention to anything any more, it's like ADD in kids but real, they don't even realize what they are doing wrong. Still a shit thing to do that you might not want to put up with.

[–]theoctopuss 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Definitely this. If she's under 25, or even dudes for that matter, they literally can't help it.

[–]Throwaway_SEERED 78 points79 points  (44 children)

They are all attention whores who will cry over the dumbest shit. I saw a girl cry because of a thunderstorm. I laughed at her. They wanna try to act like men until shit hits the fan.

[–]5 Endorsed Contributorgekkozorz 52 points53 points  (23 children)

I spent a few months in an office with some women. You wouldn't believe how low the crying threshold is. It doesn't take much.

[–]thegman84 19 points20 points  (2 children)

I spent a few months in an office with some women. You wouldn't believe how low the crying threshold is. It doesn't take much.

I saw the same thing when I was in grad school.....they're all "strong independent women" who cry their fucking eyes out when they can't figure out how to solve a homework problem.

Also.....I dated a girl who was also in grad school, working on her PhD and she also cried during thunderstorms.

[–]fartknocking 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Undergrad psychology is an easy (and female dominated) degree and the only courses that pose any real challenge are the statistics ones (because they're actual math). If you ever find yourself around when those exams are taking place you will be guaranteed to see multiple women crying because it's too hard.

Hilarious!

[–]ITHOUGHTYOUMENTWEAST 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What do you do in that situation with a girlfriend? My first reponse is to not nurture that retarded shit but can they ever get over their "fear" or whatever? I myself love thinderstorms.

[–]1independentmale 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I made a useless secretary cry at work years ago.

I'd asked her to order supplies, she said she ordered them. They didn't show up. Turns out she forgot to order. Ok, shit happens, please take care of it right away. She emailed me and said she had done it, they were coming. So the drop dead date to have this stuff comes and she isn't in the office that day and we can't find the stuff. Next day, she's back, I email her and say: "Hey, where are those supplies you ordered? We needed them yesterday."

Unleash the flood gates! She hadn't fucking ordered them at all. Enter my gay white knight boss, and I don't use that as a slur, his life partner is another man. He sees her wailing and carrying on while the other secretaries are trying to comfort her. He takes pity on her and I got a goddamn lecture about the phrase "we needed them yesterday" being uncalled for. As if. I stood my ground, argued it was a simple fact, we had needed them yesterday and now the client was pissed. He backed down, but she didn't get a single repercussion.

Several months later this same bitch locked another secretary in a conference room, pointed a knife at her and said she was going to kill her over some dumb gossip. That's what it finally took for them to fire her.

[–]5 Endorsed Contributorgekkozorz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

LOL.

I would say "you must be working in my office," but I suppose this particular female employee archetype is probably pretty well represented throughout Corporate America.

You take a woman who doesn't want to be in the professional environment but feminism tells her she HAS to be for equality's sake, you make her suffer in there long enough, eventually she will go stir-crazy and bad things will happen.

[–]ITHOUGHTYOUMENTWEAST 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If a man had been as useless he would have been absolutely ridiculed and tossed to the side. Imagine if a grown man had begun crying and everyone rushed to his side. It would be undiniable proof that we live in a simulation and that it fucking broke.

[–]Throwaway_SEERED 9 points10 points  (14 children)

If you have a story dude, feel free to share it. It's comedy to me at this point. It's typical female behavior.

[–]5 Endorsed Contributorgekkozorz 25 points26 points  (4 children)

There were a couple "I hate drama" girls who loved drama and would not miss a single opportunity to get upset enough to shed tears. I came to expect it at least once every couple weeks.

It wasn't big stuff. There was a little boy drama, and the boss could be a bit of a douche sometimes. Stuff that made me sigh, shake my head and say "okay, whatever" and get back to work would be enough to make one these chicks get seriously emotionally damaged. Not like, outright bawling, but just enough eye-leakage to ensure that everyone got the message loud and clear that she was upset and we should all feel bad for her.

The first time I felt sympathy (this was pretty far before I took the pill) then, after the 8th time it became borderline comical.

My response would always be to dismiss it and make some kind of irreverent joke about the whole thing. That would get a little laugh and then she'd just stop crying. Now that I've taken the pill, I realize that that is actually the best way to deal with a crying woman. Ignore your beta instinct to comfort and supplicate. Be amused and dismissive.

[–]Newdist2 26 points27 points  (1 child)

"I hate drama" = "I love drama"

[–]Hoodwink 16 points17 points  (0 children)

"I hate assholes" = "I love assholes"

[–][deleted] 13 points14 points  (0 children)

A crying woman is basically the same as a crying baby.

A small amount of the time, shes crying because something is legitimately paining her.

The rest of the time, shes basically saying "PAY ATTENTION TO ME, IM CRYING, WHERE IS MY ATTENTION, LOOK AT ME, COMFORT ME!!!"

[–]Throwaway_SEERED 3 points4 points  (0 children)

If i could bank on these self proclaimed women man I'd be rich. They are all full of shit. "I'm independent!" "I'm a victim!" "I hate drama!" Yea yea...whatever. Fuck em.

Amused Mastery at work.

[–]insaneyoshi 20 points21 points  (7 children)

I have one I can share for a laugh.

I work in IT, which is a sausage-fest obviously, except for this one girl who thinks she can handle the job. So one day we're asked to move our shit to a different spot. We all move in "waves" so there's always someone ready. The girl is part of the first wave, and somehow manages to lose something from one desk to the other. The boss comes up and asks in the most neutral way: "you're still moving your stuff? everyone else is done" and walks away. This bitch not only starts crying, but she also sits on the floor in the fucking hallway between desks, like a kid.

A colleague notices this and asks her what's wrong, and she says in between sobs how "the question made her feel pressured" and she also read into it how "she's useless to be taking this long" (I shit you not). So now all beta colleagues start consoling her, and ultimately help her move her stupid shit.

There's also this one time when she fucked up a live database, proceeded to run to the bathroom crying, and didn't tell anyone about it. So now shit's hitting the fan due to the DB being down, we're trying to figure out what the hell happened... She comes back 20 mins later and says how "the console did something weird" and whatnot, and we ultimately figure out what she did and solve it ourselves.

If women insist on being in the workplace, they should at least remain in HR.

[–]BloodRoseTRP 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Not HR. As evidenced by their decision making capabilities or lack thereof, many quality candidate would in fact be out of asuitableopportunity. The same opportunity is then offered to less qualified individuals. No points for guessing who these less qualified individuals are

[–]16 Endorsed ContributorCyralea 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Women are completely incapable of taking criticism. For men, it's all about the subject matter, but for women it's all about how they feel about the subject matter.

You can tell a man that running scripts against a database during production hours is a bad idea and not to do it again. He'll take it to mean exactly that.

You can tell a woman that running scripts against a database during production hours is a bad idea and not to do it again. She'll break down, because you were mean to her and made her feel like an inept moron. She may or may not infer that she should not run scripts against a live database.

Women want equality of results without equality of merit. When they're able to handle shit like men they can get paid like men.

[–]sonicdrumm80 9 points10 points  (0 children)

You mean they should remain in the cafeteria right? Its about the only semi-safe place for us and them...

[–]spitfire7rp 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I'm in IT as well and I got a contract to be a manager in a part of the DC government and one of my employees was a desktop tech and she said she needed help with something one her personal computer so I said ok bring it in. She brought it in the next day and wanted me to reformat it because it had virus's. I got up and brought it to my bosses attention and tried to get her fired but nope couldn't get that to happen for some reason.....

How does she not get fired fucking up a live db and not telling anyone.......

[–]I_DressBADtrp 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I feel like I'm missing something in this story. Why would she get fired for having malware on her personal machine? Hell, if people got fired for having viruses on their WORK machines, 95% of my users would be on their asses.

[–]Endorsed ContributorRedBigMan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just fart close enough for them to hear it and watch the waterworks fly and end up getting accused of nose rape.

[–]1Zackcid 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Same shit. Massive thunderstorms last week, I remember having to commute around town so I got to see a lot of people. I was almost surprised at first thinking: "since when were there so many couples in this city??"

On day to day basis, you might see 1, maybe 2 couples walking around out of hundreds of college-aged people. But it's only during thunderstorms that you get all these chicks huddled up, holding on to their boyfriends in great numbers.

They try to act like men are obsolete and don't need em, but as soon as something like this happens... oh boy! "You afraid of the scary thundewstowms wittle girl?? :3"

[–]Isaiah4verse1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

For god's sake I video record thunderstorms!

[–]jelloba 3 points4 points  (1 child)

lol, why would they do that? My dogs cry during thunderstorms because they are animals who don't understand it, but this is a full-grown woman. Just, why?

[–]nuc22 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Once I met a girl in my hometown and she used to cry like almost everyday. I asked her and she was like, nothing, just one of those days when I feels like crying for no reason.

[–]SekusoTrez 0 points1 point  (11 children)

Jesus, you are aware that men and women are actually different, and come to think of it, WE ARE ALSO INDIVIDUALS....

Maybe she actually was afraie of thunder? Maybe she has has a bad experience with it before (hit the house starting a fire and hurt someone she cares about)?

Stop generalizing a whole gender.

She lost her instant validation machine?

Shit... she was most likely sad because all her naked photos and movies might be seen by a guy she isn't attracted to.

      [–]17 Endorsed Contributortrudatness 4 points5 points  (1 child)

      I read shit like this sometimes and feel glad I'm not a 20-something single man in this day and age.

      A cell phone is like an attention/validation skinner box.

      If they want to get a steady stream of ego boost all they have to do is look at it every 10 seconds - like Skinner's pigeons pecking at the response key for a pellet of food.

      It's no wonder so many ride the cock carousel these days, with them peering at the ever-present temptation of strange cock multiple times every minute.

      I've read a few times dudes suggesting these millenial women are going to have an epic day of reckoning starting in about 3 or 4 years when they all start hitting the wall. I have to chuckle, because I think that's on point. We all need to store up on popcorn because the whining and crying is going to be gloriously epic.

      Right now only the strident sex-positive feminists are the ones to crash into the wall, exploding into a Hindenburg ball of flame. Seeing that shit is like going to public park on the 4th of July... Oooo Ahhhh

      Get ready for this shit, because a whole generation of women are going to enter into a wall panic crisis at once and the rationalization hamsters will kick into serious overdrive. I guarantee you everything and everyone else will be blamed and no 30+ year old woman will look into the mirror and realize where the real blame lies.

      [–]ioncloud9 9 points10 points  (1 child)

      Not to go off topic but I find this hilarious seeing how I've never seen a group of people collectively abuse and destroy their phones the way girls do. They are clumsy klutzes who cant own it for 2 weeks without cracking the screen and require a mil-spec case just for day to day usage.

      [–]TheeRyanGrey[S] 15 points16 points  (13 children)

      Again, it's not about the phone anymore.

      You can save all your contacts and shit for easy recovery.

      It's losing the attention, even for a brief moment. Losing all the pictures that verified their specialness.

      [–]thepastIdwell 7 points8 points  (11 children)

      Or, maybe a phone costs 700$. I might cry if I just lost that as well, or just be angry.

      [–]systemshock869 4 points5 points  (8 children)

      Came here to say this. We all know women are addicted to these validation machines but this is a pretty weak post. There could be any number of reasons why someone would be upset. Some people get more upset than others. Losing a $700+ device is pretty upsetting. TRP goes a little overboard on the woman hate sometimes.

      [–]16 Endorsed ContributorCyralea 1 point2 points  (7 children)

      What man would cry themselves senseless over losing an electronic device?

      [–]Misterlulz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      Honestly, I've lost my phone before, heck I was terrified, but if your sitting their moaning and crying it isn't going to solve anything. I had to have a clear mind and ask around. This lady should have asked people to help her find her phone, instead of crying for an hour.

      Related story. A long time ago at my (150 person) workplace there was a woman visibly crying outside the coffee room (where every went during breaks) after the break. Everyone got concerned. The reason? A co-worker brought a cake which contained cream, meaning she couldn't eat it (due to allergy). The cake wasn't intended specifically for her, just for sharing.

      Depending on who the person was, that cell phone might have been part of their livelihood. I don't think it's a particularly good reason to break down sobbing, but that phone could have been very important for whatever it is she does for work, or was her only means of making phone calls, etc.

      Not a good reason to make a scene, but I think you may be blowing things a bit out of proportion and making assumptions.

      [–]TheeRyanGrey[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

      Again, if it's that important, take better care of it.

      I have a very expensive record player. I never take it anywhere, I clean it regularly, I always keep it stored properly. Thats what you do with nice things.

      The more you guys try and defend the modern woman the worse you make her look.

      [–]Bear10 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      I agree that she should have taken better care of something that was so important to her, but a cellphone is also very different from an expensive record player. A cellphone left at home isn't very useful, and they're meant to be carried around. And this isn't just the modern woman, a majority of people rely pretty heavily on their cellphone. I know I'd be absolutely pissed if mine got lost or stolen.

      I'm just saying that it seems like you're either not reading into this far enough, or you're reading into it in a way that's kinda off, know what I mean?

      If someone doesn't have a computer. losing a phone can be somewhat devastating. You lose all of your contacts, your ability to communicate with family, friends, clients, etc. Who is to say that she is able to afford another phone immediately. It's impossible to be able to understand her situation without her telling you. Also, as you put it, she lost access to her social networking apps as well.

      [–]heal_thyself 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      My phone is my computer and internet. I don't have any other communication device. If I lose or break this one, I'm shit out of luck until I can get a cheap as shit replacement.

      [–]let_terror_reign 0 points1 point  (2 children)

      I don't get why this is downvoted. I posted much the same, coz I'm there as well. If I lose my phone, I can't afford to get another. No space I'm my budget

      [–]Nutpeddler 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      By a random coincidence, I lost internet access for 2 weeks prior to moving. In hindsight, it was a character building exercise. I didn't find it that difficult, it was more unusual, because the net has seeped into the normal life for information purposes quite a lot.

      [–]DoesNotMatterAnymore 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      I was on a month long backpacking as an European in Europe. Later on I will share my experiences, but not now.

      One of my female friend arranged a welcome party for my arrival. It was really cool.

      Basically, all my friends were already drunk by now, they were drinking for hours. The gender ratio was 5 guy 1 girl. They barely gave a shit about me. All they did was validating her all night. While I was there, we discussed her hair extensions, that she will get a boob job, because she is so lean and fit, if she loses weight she loses it from her breasts. All my male friends: "ohh you look perfect; I prefer small boobs; fake tits are disgusting " Blablablabla.

      After 30min I was like, "Is this my welcome party, or she really organized a Validation Party for her self?"

      Don't get me wrong, I wasn't jealous, all I wanted that night is to eat something and sleep, but her behavior made me sick.

      [–]LasherDeviance 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      That's the thing though... These hoes today aren't technologically adept, they don't have rooted phones neither do they know how to upgrade firmware/basebands and the like; They just know how to use simple apps like facebook. Most hoes don't even know that you can remote locate a phone, because when the person in the store is trying to tell them about the features of the phone, their eyes gloss over until someone says facebook. I've seen it.

      There were two lotteries when you were born. 1) you had a 50 percent chance of being born with a vagina and living a carefree life free of worries. 2) you had a 10 percent chance of being a really good looking male and having an easy life. We lost both.

      Devils Advocate Time: Maybe she lost her phone AND had no way to contact her friends her were her ride back. Also she was probs drunk. In which case this is understandable.

      Could be that she had irreplaceable pictures of her family on it.

      If I lost my phone, I'd be pissed off because I've had the same number for 13 years, but crying over it? Seriously?! I didn't even cry at my friend's funeral, or even my aunt's. What's wrong with this woman? She needs to toughen up.

      [–]DevuSM 1 point2 points  (4 children)

      You can migrate the number to your next phone....

      [–]jmg83 0 points1 point  (3 children)

      I'd have to register the number or something, though, right?

      [–]JohnPeel 0 points1 point  (1 child)

      The number is registered to your service provider, so if you lose the phone... just tell them and they'll mail you another sim-card and deactivate the old one so people can't make calls.

      I mean they must have your details, how are they getting money off you otherwise? :p

      Well how old was she? Some of these girls buy phones they can't even afford. If she's making $18,000 a year and the phone cost $800 that's something to be upset about. Of course if you're making minimum wage you shouldn't really buy an iPhone 6, but still.

      That's the difference between men and women. I bet there are more than a few veterans who never shed a tear having lost a limb. Strong and independent my rear end.

      [–]theredpill101 0 points1 point  (0 children)

      This is one of the key differences between men and women: which molehills become mountains. As per your FR, you can see that for women, molehills will often become mountains.

      I can remember flying states away to visit a friend for a 3 day weekend and losing my phone on the very first day. Oh no! What to do?!

      Well, the phone is lost. I can't do anything about it until I get back home, and then it's gonna cost me my insurance deductible to get a new one. I'll have to wait until Monday or Tuesday to do this. But I bought plane tickets and flew out here to party. No lost phone is gonna ruin this for me.

      So we had an awesome party for 3 days, I flew home, and I bought a new phone. No tears, no abject panic.

      Likewise, I can recall driving back from the mountains with one of my best friends - he's driving, I'm riding shotgun. We're on a back country road and without warning, he pulls off the road and parks on the shoulder. He gets out, opens the trunk, takes off his shoes and puts on sandals, gets back in, and we take off.

      He looks over at me and says "you weren't gonna ask why I pulled over?"

      And I told him "No. You had a reason to stop the car. I don't care what it was as long as everything's cool."

      And he goes "man, this is why I love driving with other guys. If my girlfriend had been in the car she would've freaked and asked a million questions. Why did you stop? What's wrong? Where are we going? I don't like being on the side of the road."

      Being able to handle these little molehills, adjusting your attitude so that they don't have a huge effect on you, is basically the key tenet to stoicism.

          Women are fucking emotional. Maybe she had something private or really important in there. There's no telling. If I lost my phone, I'd be pretty pissed. Fortunately, I back everything up on all of my computers.

            You need some context here. My girlfriend has photos on her phone of her dog that died recently. She has since backed the photos up but she would have been devastated to slide the photos.

            Maybe the girl who lost her phone had a similar problem or even because of the expense of replacing it.

            I can understand wanting to be 'alpha' but some of these posts on trp are made by pure 'betas' wanting to be alpha. TRP is about truth, not hating.

            [–]TheeRyanGrey[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

            Hopefully your girlfriend d wouldn't bring said phone to an insanely packed club and leave it unattended whilst she drank heavily.

            [–]breathedeeply1234 0 points1 point  (0 children)

            I agree that trp is about truth not hating. That being said, a woman I know had a dog which died, and she fell sobbing to the kitchen floor. She couldn't understand why her boyfriend was so cold to her. "It's probably because he suddenly saw that if HE was the one who had just died you wouldn't shed a tear." "Well maybe you're right!" she retorted defiantly. "You were staying in his house, eating his food, sleeping in his bed, taking up his life, and this is your attitude if he dies? And you're surprised he dropped you as a girlfriend?" Geez.

            [–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

            not so much my phone but my laptop is my digital memory, there's an unimaginable amount of personal info and work and digital belongings on it, if I lost that without a backup I'd be devastated as well.

            not sure why we have to inject TRP armchair psychology into every mundane event like this, rather cringeworthy.

            [–]TheeRyanGrey[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

            Because something that important shouldn't be brought somewhere with thousands of people and left unattended while you get insanely drunk, especially without backing it up?

            Or the simple and obvious fsct, one that I clearly stated, that phones are now to women what porn is to men, access to addictions we weren't meant to have.

            But you clearly would prefer to be a dick about things so continue, please.

            no, it's not fact (unless you can produce some scientific studies/evidence, then I'll gladly backpedal like a bitch) but your crude idea/analogy that this is what phones are to women - what mobile phones have become to both genders is a question with more complex an answer than a catchy one liner.
