Your Turn

If ordered by a judge, would you turn over the entire contents of your phone knowing whatever embarrassing things in it will be publicly released or drop your case?

When CNN fired me, I could not afford to pay my electric bill.

It was the darkest period of my life.

MountainMama said...

I am an old wise woman. There is nothing on my phone that I would be worried about. People that store nudes, and racy videos on their phones are not too bright.

Ann said...

They can have my phone any time without a court order. Zip, nada, nothing on my phone to cause a problem.

sandybrook said...

I don't keep anything on my phone.

Do Tell said...

As long as they don't delete all my contacts, concert photos and footage, they could have at it. With my previous phone, I might have had a problem handing over, lol.

Unknown said...

what mountain mama said, only imbeciles have embarrassing videos and pics of themselves on their phones
Make that utter 'tards if they happen to be celebrities

Jennifer said...

Nothing bad on my phone, maybe a couple silly text messages that may be slightly embarrassing, but that's it.

hunter said...

I have an extremely curated, very small number of nudes on my phone which are not super easy to find.

I'd be WAY more concerned about some of my unflattering "before" pics (seasonal weight loss) getting out, that would be truly humiliating.

hunter said...

Almost threw my back out taking one shot 36 times.

Meredith said...

Glad you made it through, Candy!

They can have my phone. I'm not embarrassed about how many pics I take of my cats or food

c dan run said...

I'm too smart to own a smartphone, and my dumb phone shows nothing but very rare outgoing calls and an insane amount of incoming spam calls, which is only minorly embarrassing.

Pearl said...

Whenever people wonder about racy pics on their phones, I always remember that one scene from AP Bio where the teacher is telling the other teachers that when a guy asks for a pic of her backside or bosom, she takes a picture of the crook of her arm bent so it looks like some kind of cleavage.

J said...

No problem. Can't be blackmailed.

Vita said...

Hooray! It's a Candy day!😁

JS said...

Yes, and the Judge would be bored to death.

Vita said...

Oh, and my phone is rarely used, nothing fun or embarrassing

hothotheat said...

I would, no problem. Nothing embarrassing on my phone.

DavidHowesCREBroker said...

Plus 1, MountainMama!

As an Old White Man, I don't have anything on my phone worth looking at.

I even delete pictures as soon as I post them.

Definitely NOT of the Selfie generation!

Brayson87 said...

Well, which phone? ;)

Just kidding, I've got nada on my phone, truly don't believe smartphones are secure. Anything you enter on your phone could wind up in a database somewhere.

cat said...

My search history for bitchy cats, The X Files, Twilight, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson would be embarrassing.

Thia said...

Like everyone else, the only embarrassment would be the judge falling asleep while looking at the 6 million pictures of my dog.

Zebra Seasoning said...

Screenshots of stuff to share with friends and I never deleted
Pictures of food and sunsets
pdfs of fanfic

Yeah. They can have it.

Weekittylass said...

I would like to say neither, just for GP, but it would cost too much to fight it. They can have it. There is nothing embarrassing or incriminating on it. I’m too old for that shit.

Hanniam said...

Yep. Nothing to worry about here either. Texts are stuff I’d talk about in public. Photos? Hope the judge and jury enjoy lots of dog pictures and close ups of whatever mundane thing my wife and I are texting photos back and forth of. (Most recently the loose glitter section at a Michaels).

Brayson87 said...

Damn Hunter, what takes 36 shots? 😅

Aquagirl said...

The only embarrassing thing on my phone is my history of how often I come to CDAN!

Notagoodscreenname said...

lol @ loose glitter at Michaels

Sd Auntie said...

learned my lesson nuthin in my phone to be embarrassed about

Hanniam said...

@notagoodscreenname I will not be shamed over my glitter habit! 🤓

Rob Horine said...

Sure, look at my phone. You'll be bored.

Low Key said...

I would hope they find my meme collection entertaining

Bleu said...

I also too boring to come up with a crime and text all my plans about it with my co-conspirators, including the paraphenalia to buy and our test run through it.

Bleu said...

I would let the court have it but know I'd probably be labeled a crazy cat lady for all my photos of Kong the cat.

Gator said...

I'd accidentally drop it in the river

MattDaddy said...

Yeah. I’m boring. Nothing saucy. Unfortunately.

OKay said...

There is absolutely nothing weird or embarrassing on my phone.

emeraldcity said...

Don't know what they would be looking for in my bread and butter life but sure....nothing there but a couple of speed dials and Optometrist/dentist appointment SMS reminders. I only ever use it to take calls or make them.

rabbit said...

Nothing, except some sort of bitchy text messages about someone a little too old to be trashy.

Turitella said...

My phone doesn't take pictures. But I still wouldn't give it to them out of general principle.

leo21 said...

Yep. Flip phones are amazing!

HouellebecqGurl said...

No. I would never turn over my phone, on principle.

Sagan said...

Sure. Take the phone. Want the charger, too?

The only incriminating evidence they're going to find is my sad selection of fast/sorta slow food joints in the Contacts. Well, that and the rather large collection of sunset photos. Or the cache from the YouTube app and my sudden obsession with The Crazy Lamp Lady.
