Said shoebag just so happens to have my phone in it.
My phone just so happens to be my secondary method of getting into contact with the world, with my internet being the primary.
If my internet goes down, though, without my phone I won't have any method of communicating so this is letting you know that. Obviously, this is only a minor inconvenience if the internet continues working, but you never know. So. This is me giving you the knowledge that if I don't answer by phone/internet it's not that I'd be ignoring you so much as that I have a physical inability to respond until I get my phone back and/or internet returns but you get the point.
Apologies. It's a minor inconvenience but I will fix it when I can.
