I ran into Apple store as soon as my hubby offed work on 11th, but the 2 hours long queue draw me back from getting it on that day. We left the Apple store and decided to come back again on the next day morning, I mean early in the morning before the Apple store open (the business hours starts from 9am till 9pm). Outrageously, I get up at 7.30am this morning and leave the house by 8.30am.
YES!!! Early bird gets the worms, that is the key, I thought.
What the $#%^&#^@%$#@%! Excuse me, you guys camped here since yesterday? It's just 9am. American runs on iPhone.
Are we going to queue up? Of course, I said. Darling, I do this plainly FOR YOU! For your belated birthday present.
After 30 minutes...
The line still not moving yet. ARGH...
After 1 hour and 30 minutes...
I need a BREAK! I need to SIT! I need Starbucks!
After 2 hours (sharp)...
Nothing... Yup, we end up getting out the store with nothing. We have a situation with the phone line (AT&T). Therefore, we travel to the AT&T store to find out the reasons and try to work things out. As I blogged earlier, the 16G iPhone only cost US$ 299. However according to terms and conditions (watch out of these business trick), new AT&T users and those who have AT&T contract less than 24 months are not eligible for the US$ 299 discount price (I thought that's the normal price through their advertisement).
Unfortunately, we have to pay the FULL AMOUNT of US$ 499 for a 16G black iPhone.. What a bummer!
How sad! We pay US$ 200 extra. With that amount of money, I can probably get a Nintendo DS or four Wii games or five Chanel's eye creams :'(
What to do? How can you resist such a beauty and sexy gadget?
Read again, I said such a beauty (I mean my own picture in the iPhone) and sexy gadget (iPhone is undoubtedly sexy). Aren't we just the prefect match for my hubby's belated birthday present? You bet.
