Even though the iPhone 5's aluminum backing removed the odds of shattering the glass by 50%, some people will always be on the wrong side of the odds. These are those people. Those poor, unfortunate, unlucky souls who have already broken their brand new iPhone 5 after only a week.
I don't want to jinx myself here—I'm totally jinxing myself here—but I've never been on the other end of a shattered iPhone before. But I do know that anytime I drop that slippery soap of a phone, I get that huge sinking feeling that's similar to heartbreak. I feel for you guys.
I wonder if I'm the first person to crack my iPhone 5 screen?

And if you already broke your iPhone 5, it's not over! Take it to the Apple Store, bat your eyelashes and hope for the best.
