As this young man found out today, always unbox your prized possessions from the comfort and safety of your own home.
We feel for Jack Cooksey. After being the first person in Perth to get his hands on the new iPhone 6, Jack fumbled while trying to unbox the smartphone in front of a news crew and it slipped onto the sidewalk with a solid thud. The embarrassment got worse when the crowd around him let out a collective sigh.
Jack admitted that he “dropped it in a panic to get it open”, yet there appeared to be no damage to the phone. According to him, it was covered in plastic. The kid is likely playing around with the phone’s extensive functions right now, but we know he learned a painful lesson today. As with sneakers, it’s best to unbox all prized possessions from the comfort and safety of your own home.
