Some doofus rushed the stage of a Broadway play to charge his phone using the set’s fake electrical outlet


Hand to God set

There’s probably no greater feeling of desperation than watching your phone dip below 10% battery. Like other life threatening events, you’re never really quite sure how you’ll react until it happens to you. In fact, some people will do just about anything to keep their phones juice up for just a little while longer — even if that means getting kicked out of a theater.

Take this man in New York who, while watching the Broadway show “Hand to God,” thought he would be able to sneak onto the stage unnoticed and plug his phone into the set’s electrical outlet. The fake outlet. On the set. Of course, being that this was just a set and not real life, the outlet didn’t actually work. Guess he didn’t think about that part when all he could think about was getting his smartphone fix. The incident was reported by several cast and audience members who were left speechless after witnessing the tomfoolery first hand. After eventually receiving his cellphone back from an usher, the man reportedly asked if there was anywhere else he could charge his phone. Wow.

While the jury is still out on the exact smartphone he was using — Android? iPhone? — I think we can all agree that if you’re that addicted to your smartphone, you’re probably better off carrying around an inexpensive portable charger with you. That, or picking up the Motorola DROID Turbo and possibly exercising a little restraint.
