Nerve racking: When my iPhone went dead

I thought that I had done everything right before going to bed that evening. I dutifully plugged in my iPhone, made sure that it was well plugged in, and then I went off to bed.

When I awoke the next morning I reached for my trusted iPhone and pressed the button to turn it on.  Nothing, no sound, no response!

Of course, I began to panic.  What had happened?  Was my poor little iPhone dead for good?  I rebooted it twice and still no response.  I took it to another outlet and plugged it in and still no response.

I had to hurry to get my things together because I had to be at a meeting in the next half hour.  I gingerly placed my dead iPhone in its little case, showered quickly, dressed and packed my stuff hurriedly, and then I rushed out of my room and ran towards the elevator.

I made it to my meeting and had a few minutes to ask one of my colleagues to take a look at my iPhone.  Bingo!  The battery had run down and it was all because of the fact that although I had plugged in my iPhone all right, the outlet had not been emitting any electricity because the control switch in my room had been turned off.

This switch was located somewhere on a wall and I never knew this and with not enough vision to see lights or anything else, that was the problem.

All in a day's journey.
