Hey, knucklehead! Don't follow your phone down the trash chute!

Do not enter.
On Sunday, nineteen-year-old Amanda "Still Crazy After All These Years" Still accidentally threw her cellphone down the trash chute at her apartment complex, and decided that a thing to do would be to dive down there after it. Luckily, some trash was lodged in the shaft (ew) so she got stuck and didn't just fly right into the trash compactor and get squashed.

Watch 11 Alive's report. Then we'll chat.

OK, so, first of all, my favorite thing about this video is that Still got her phone back, but is still (Still?) not being careful with it at all. I was waiting for it to fly out of her hand and right back into the trash compactor.

Second, this reminds me of a story my Mom told me that's one of my favorites ever. She and my father were on one of those open-air sightseeing buses in St. Augustine, Fla. when an elderly woman dropped her camera off the back and into the road. Rather than not jump off the back of the bus after it, she jumped off the back of the bus after it. And rolled in the road. I know cameras and cellphones aren't cheap, but c'mon ladies.
