READ IN CASE OF EMERGENCY

WHEN YOUR PHONE HAS RUN OUT

OK, don’t panic, we can get through this. It’s just a short journey. How hard can it be?

There are loads of things we can do to entertain ourselves. Just need to engage the old brain. OK, so no e-mail. Have you got a pen, some paper, a book of stamps, some envelopes and something to lean on? No? Right.

What about photos? Close your eyes and try to remember some things that have happened to you. A night out or a holiday or someone’s birthday. Doesn’t even need to be yours. No? Of course not. Now we’ve got phones we don’t really need to remember things, do we?

Um, OK... music! Hum a tune. No, wait, don’t do that, you’ll look crazy. Wow, this is difficult. How long has it been? It feels like hours... I think we’ve all learned an important lesson here today and that lesson is NEVER EVER LET YOUR PHONE RUN OUT OF BATTERY EVER AGAIN. EVER.
