Stolen iPhone and my Broken Hand
After a few beers and nice conversations with more travelers… I was walking back to my hotel and making some notes on my iPhone on some of my plans for the next year…
It is said that there are over 3 million motorbikes in Ho Chi Minh City that have a population of over 9 million people!! This being said, you are overwhelmed by all the scooters driving past you and all the hooting that is happening everywhere!!
So… While I was making one more note on my iPhone, without any notice, two guys drove past me and one guy at the back simply grabbed my phone out of my hand!!! And while driving away the guy that grabbed the phone looked back at me (while I was standing there in absolute amazement), and had the cheek to laugh at me as they drove away!!!
So there I was standing, absolutely pissed off, lost it for a few seconds and hit the first thing I saw.. And it was a lamppost!! But this one did not bounced out of the ground like in the cartoons… It is still in PERFECT shape!!
After two days of struggling going from doctor to doctor and from Medi Clinic to Medi Clinic, I finally got to a doctor that could help… Well he said we have two options…
1 – Operate Today (expensive)
2 – The more painful… Break it back while awake (cheap)
Ooooo and this being said… This is how me and the doctor talked with each other.. Google Translate!!!! Haha it took a bit longer than normal!!!
So it was not a very difficult desision… Option 2!!! And then the fun started….
And this is what my hand looked like before the whole break it back action…
And then we got started!! After two hours of a lot of pain… I walked out…
First – hanging my finger with weights.. For about an hour
Second – break it back!!
And more google translate… And when google translate told me.. “”You will feel discomfort now”” I knew that the pain was comming…. AND IT DID!!
