Default My wife washed my Mp3 player!

There wasn't really a board for this sort of thing but I had to tell someone.
So my lovely samsung 1g mp3 player(which is no bigger than my index finger, so fairly easy to overlook) made it all the way through wash,rinse and tumle cycles and wasn't noticed until loading to the dryer!
My wife freaked out (as she had given it to me this may as a B'day gift and it was fairly expensive).
Anyway...get this..... we let it dry out and the little bugger worked fine!! UNBELIEVABLE!!
Usually such a delicate thing would be completely banjaxed!

well everything worked out fine and we all learned a valuable lesson:check your pockets, or dont let your wife buy you expensive things if you are clumsy

my mom put my phone through the same process... only one difference... it never worked again
my next phone fell out of my pocket and sank in the lake Geneva...
I'm still waiting to see what happens with my next one...

I was also unfortunate enough to spill a botle of water all over my laptop... I was getting hopefull as my comp continued to work... but then my screen suddenly went blank. I put my laptop upside down on the radiator and watched with horror as water flowed out of the air vents... 2 days later, wen I had the courage to test it again, it worked fine and isstill working 3 years afterwards

Just a few days ago I left a pen in my sweatshirt's front pocket, and it ruined the entire load! I've got black spots all over my clothes now, in permanent ink. Really lucky with that mp3 player.... I doubt an ipod would have survived.

You sure that was a good idea? (Even if it did make it work again) I mean, the heat could have damaged it...

No it wasn't a good idea... but I didn't know that back then... oh, well. Atleast it didn't get damaged, since I'm still using it to type this message :P
