The ol' "forgot I set it down on my lap and stood up" situation. I see this happening to people on almost a daily basis stepping out of their cars. There's also the "random stranger bumping the phone out of your hand" which can be quite unexpected.

Every time I drop my phone even with a case or not, I have a mini heart attack. I know my case will protect it and I know that the Nexus 5 has a durable screen and needs a pretty hard fall to break but it's that 000.1 percent chance that I'll pick it up after a nasty fall one day and have a small crack.

Seeing a stupid comment on Google Play about an app you love and marking it as "spam". You've done it too.

My screen broke about 2 weeks ago... very upsetting. I thought about getting a screen and doing the job myself, but I figured it would be best, for me, to have LG do it.

Unfortunately, they are rather slow. They got it one week ago today, and it's not expected to be delivered to my house until Tuesday. So a total of 14 days since I mailed it back to them.

Just keep that in mind if you plan to have them fix it... The only phone I had from before is an old flip phone.. which works, but very, very limiting compared to a N5. lol

OP, I feel for ya. If that happened to me; I would have a bad day too!

However, there is a thread dedicated to people having bad days here: Post your broken Nexus 5 thread

Feel free to drown in your sorrow with the other unfortunate members.
