returned a phone i found

I found a phone after I lost one  but returned the new phone because I found my old one. Confusing? Not really.

In Manila, during one of the trips back to the hotel, I seemed to have lost my Nokia 1100. However on that same day, when I went back to the office, I found a Sony Ericsson W700. At that moment, I felt pressured in a sense that  needed a form of contact since I had to meet up with somebody. After I realized that my old phone was inside my pants in the laundry basket, I figured I should’ve returned the new one. Yeah, I’m too good to be true.

In the end, I went to the owner’s place somewhere in Sampaloc, Manila and then gave back the phone. In return, they gave me something as a reward. I’m just happy that I handed it back cause I don’t want to be placed in the same shoes as them. Although in a sense it’s their fault for losing it in the first place, at least I was able to do a good deed in some way.

My 1100, I know I need to replace it but I still love this baby despite it’s old and tattered look wherein the keypads are already faded and the alarm not ringing anymore. I bought this phone at a pawnshop somewhere in downtown Cebu for 900 bucks only. It served the purpose of calling and texting, plus it has a flashlight on!
