A woman named Liz Bertorelli has gone viral for overcoming a legitimate personal crisis this month:
She dropped her iPhone out her apartment window and watched helplessly as it lay on her neighbor's balcony... for days.
Why was she unable to retrieve it? Why couldn't her neighbors simply help out? How did she put one foot in front of the other and go on with her life following such a traumatic event?
Thankfully, Liz Tweeted a majority of this harrowing tale in real time.
