UnNews:Problem page: I have a bent one
Wednesday, September 24, 2014
Welcome to the first in our series of Agony Aunt letters, with our resident Agony Aunt, Debbie Lovelace.
The most important thing in the world to me is totally bent! I feel like such a freak and a loser. I am sure everyone else's is perfectly straight. I used to be so proud of what I was packing, but now I am terrified of taking it out in front of my friends, in case they point and laugh at it. Is there anything I can do to fix it? I read online somewhere that you can put weights on it, but I am scared that might snap it in two. Please help!

Dear Desperate in Dallas,
Please don't worry about this. It's perfectly normal for it not to be 100% straight. If you think about it, nothing in nature is! Every week, we receive dozens of letters from readers who are in a panic about having a bent one. So what does that tell you? That you're not alone! If all the boys in the hall whipped theirs out at the same time, I am sure you would see just as many bent ones as straight ones.
I would not recommend you put weights on it. It was not designed to support dumbbells! However, if you are really concerned about it, you can go to your nearest Apple shop and ask them to exchange your iPhone for a new one.
