    18 Stages Of Losing Your Phone

    It's a fate worse than death.

    1. Denial.

    DreamWorks Pictures

    No, wait. It was right there!

    2. The calm before the storm.

    Walt Disney Pictures

    Okay, okay, don't panic. It's gotta be near here.

    3. Minor panicking begins.

    Warner Bros. Pictures

    Why isn't it here?!

    4. Major panicking begins.

    Walt Disney Pictures


    5. Forced relaxation.

    New Line Cinema

    Breathe...breathe...It's going to be okay.

    6. Toss 'forced relaxation' out the window.

    New Line Cinema

    Screw that, WHERE IS MY DAMN PHONE?!?!

    7. Claw through anything and everything around you.

    Warner Bros. Pictures

    Is it here? Nope. Is it HERE? Nope.

    8. Yell at people nearby to call your phone.

    The CW

    Someone please call 917-I-CAN'T-FIND-MY-PHONE.

    9. Realize it's probably on silent or vibrate.

    Universal Pictures

    No no no no no no no.

    10. Cry.

    Nickelodeon Productions

    All hope is lost. All. Is. Lost.

    11. Play the blame game.

    Warner Bros. Television Distribution

    *Looks at random dude next to you*

    I see you, Shifty-Eye McGee. GIVE ME BACK MY PHONE.

    12. Apologize.

    Warner Bros. Television Distribution

    Sorry, Shifty-Eye McGee. I'm just hella stressed.

    13. Hyperventilate into a slippery slope of sadness.


    That's it. It's lost. I can't find it. Now, I'm going to have to spend money I don't have on a new phone, which means I can't pay rent, which means I'll be out on the street, which means I'll die.

    14. Someone suggests the Find My iPhone app.


    That would be a great solution, if I had the app. Or, if I had an iPhone. *More crying*

    15. More searching and pawing through things.

    Walt Disney Productions

    Maybe it's underneath this huge pile of assorted crap?

    16. Defeat.

    Apatow Productions / DreamWorks Television

    Welp, that's it. It's fallen into the phone black hole of death.

    17. Magically find phone.


    It was in my bag the whole time! How about that?!

    *Sigh of relief*

    18. Resume your life.


    Everyone can stop panicking now. All is right with the world again.
