Juice seems to be going out of his way over the last few weeks to prove that the cost of drinking is often far more than the booze.
Less than two weeks ago he was out partying and someone spilled a drink on his iPhone, rendering it inoperable. After taking it to the Apple store, it turned out that he would have to pay $250 to get it repaired, and he got it back two days ago.
Last night he realized he had no cash when he went to pay the taxi driver upon getting home, and essentially left the driver his iPhone as collateral to prove that he'd be back with money in a few minutes. Unfortunately for him, the driver had basic math skills and promptly drove off with the phone after calculating that a $1000 gadget was probably worth more than a $20 cab fare.
Better luck for the rest of the year, dude.
