lol I hear ya... unfortunately they have a way of telling if it got wet.
And tbh, I'm not big on ripping companies off, even big huge ones... I'm just an honest guy. Now, when I've paid (or in this case my daughter has paid) good money for that extra fantabulous splendiferous super extra warranty that covers everything short of hitting it with a sledgehammer, I don't mind stretching the truth a bit. Should I be dropping my iPod in water? Fuck no, that's all me. Should I be spraying it with a garden hose? Of course, still no. But it was hardly what I'd consider soaked when I picked it up, and I'd like to think that a device they know people are going to use 24/7, in all kinds of environments, would be a little more... resistant?
Gray area for me, in this specific case. If I'd flat out washed it, or dropped it in the shitter, different story. But trashed from overspray? Damn. I've gotten pos cheap cell phones soaking wet that kept working.
