Has anyone else had those days where everything seems to not want to cooperate?

This morning, I was trying to check my e-mail via my cell phone while I was on my break at work.  All the sudden, seven of the buttons on my phone decided to stop working.  This makes things rather interesting considering one of those buttons is the one I push to answer a call.  For now, I have set the phone so it will answer calls if I flip it open.  That was a rather interesting task to accomplish with half the buttons not working.

I use a PDA at work.   Some of them are pretty beat up from being constantly used and dropped.  The one I had today occasionally decided it did not want to cooperate.  I had to reboot it at least once because of this.  Nothing too major, though.  I have had worse.

This afternoon, while I was on my second break, they called for a co-worker across the radio.  He did not answer.  They called a second time.  No answer.  I attempted to answer for him and realized the battery in my radio was nearly dead.  I went and tracked my co-worker down and we discovered his radio was not receiving anything.  He had not heard any of the calls for him.

Of course, right after we got our radios fixed, we got called again, and my PDA decided it did not want to cooperate again.
