If you’ve ever dropped your phone in the toilet, you know you’ll NEVER FORGET the series of feelings you experienced after.  So that’s why this story is so wild.

A woman in Maryland named Becki Beckmann says she and her husband were having trouble with their toilet last week.  There was a “banging sound” every time they flushed.  Initially, they blamed it on their old house, but then they got so annoyed that they decided to “plunge the [heck] out of it.”

That’s when they pulled something out:  Becki’s iPhone . . . that had been deeply lodged in the toilet . . . for almost 10 YEARS.  She said she lost that phone back on Halloween of 2012.  (A night that she MAY have been drinking.)

In a post on Facebook, she said she thought it was “mysterious” that her phone vanished without a trace.  But eventually, she gave up looking for it and bought a new one.  She included some photos of the old phone after they pulled it out.

Obviously, it was damaged . . . but unless they cleaned it up before sharing the photos, it mostly just looks like it was dropped.
