Here's you without service.

Also known as: a disoriented mess.

Because literally nothing is worse than this.

1. Especially in places like this: the hellhole known as the subway platform.

Here. Service is absolutely needed here. You need more than a stranger's face to distract you from the extreme heat/cold/smell/rats, etc., etc.

So many people, so little service.

3. In the middle of nowhere.

Oh you're on vacation? Good thing you told everyone you were going to be "off the grid" for a while because you literally don't have a choice.

Because every time you're on a boat you're positive that this is going to happen to you.

Elevators: always hot, always awkward, and you're always pretending you're on your phone when you aren't because there's no service.

6. At a wild 'n' out music festival.

Yay! None of us have service! We have no idea where our friends are! We won't be able to upload pics to Instagram for two more days!

7. At your parents' house.

This is where 21st-century technology comes to die.

And you HATE being in that basement without service because you're always expecting the worst. How are you supposed to speed dial 911?!

9. In hellacious lines on Black Friday.

FACT: Situations like these will overload the servers, and you will be bummed about it.
