Straight from the Horse’s Mouth
On Thursday, I heard ANOTHER Verizon iPhone rumor, because, we all know me. I’ve been stalking the thing for months and months and months. I called the local Verizon store the second the announcement was made, and when they redirected me to sign up on the Verizon web site, my fingers couldn’t move fast enough to type in everything necessary to apply. For days, I returned to the Verizon site to check and check and check to make certain my information was all still in there.
I know. I have a problem.
Thursday, I went to the Verizon store to get this thing called a mi-fi, a credit card sized device that I can take with me anywhere to hop online. Because, I want to be one of THOSE people who sit around in public and preen with my MacBook Pro.
As I was leaving, I mentioned that I was in line for an iPhone. The person helping me invaded my space and dropped her voice to a scant whisper.
“You can get it on February (date deleted to protect my interests),” she muttered.
Really? Gee, I already KNEW that, because the Verizon e-mail notification area for customers keeps promising me – every single time I go back there to check – that it will be available on the (date deleted, again.) This scandalous, cloak-and-dagger information was not news to me.
Then, she said, “But, wait. They’re going to start selling them at (an ungodly, only known to me hour.) If you go on at (time deleted) on February (date deleted), you’ll have your iPhone by the (two days later.)”
(Exclamation points indicate eagerness and ecstasy……)
(followed by swear words.)
WHY do I have to get up at o’dark-thirty in the stupid morning to place my order for my iPhone? Are the Verizon and Apple gods going to be sitting online laughing at all of us salivating freaks, lumbering out of bed to drag ourselves to our computers in a race to be among the first to have one?
I bet they will be.
And, I don’t care.
I got all my information straight from the horse’s mouth. And, I’m not telling ANYBODY what she told me.
