Blackberry Owes You A New Girlfriend

Poor Rafael, he got into a big fight with his girlfriend right before the Blackberry outage and now he’s single. From Network World:

And it hasn’t just been loss control that has suffered, he adds: “This issue sucks. I’ve been getting grief about it from my now ex-girlfriend thanks to this delay. She thought I was ignoring her e-mails when I was receiving them hours late.”

So I write back expressing my fervent hope that he was kidding about the “ex” part. No chance.

“We got into a really bad argument earlier in the day,” he replies. “She sent me a few e-mails and when I didn’t respond right away, she thought I was ignoring her and called it off. I didn’t get the e-mail it was over until around 2 a.m. today.”

Not knowing what else to say, I suggest that perhaps this situation might be covered by his BlackBerry service-level agreement. His reply:

“I’ll call RIM and tell them to give me an upgrade on a new girlfriend.”

It’s our opinion that Rafael is better off. The ex obviously doesn’t read Consumerist or she’d have known immediately what was going on. —MEGHANN MARCO
