Moral dilemma! Halp, TQC!|
It's been storming all day, and so I went to take a shower a bit ago and my roommate and suitemate had hung some very damp clothes up over the shower bar. So I took them down, just for the 10 minutes I'd be in the shower. As I'm reaching for my suitemate's jeans to move them to the countertop, I feel a bulge in the pocket. These jeans are upside down and I know this is her phone, it's poking out, so I slip it out and put it in a safer place on the windowledge in the bathroom, because jeans hanging upside down in a shower with a phone hanging out of the pocket? Something bad is going to happen, and we're close enough friends that I'd trust her to do the same with my phone. As I'm putting the phone on the sill, however, I notice that it's a bit damp. I slide it open to see if it's all right, and the keypad lights up and such - but the screen gives a pathetic flash of light and dims, and won't come back on. Well, fuck. This isn't going to look good for me. So I tried to dry it off as best I could, as it's clear the rain got to it somehow (or my other suitemate's shower before mine, if she hadn't moved the jeans to take hers), and put it back in her jeans after I get out of the shower and am totally dry myself.
Do I tell her what happened or just put the phone back in her jeans and hope she doesn't make a connection and try to accuse me?
