a sad sign


i was pumped.
so so sooo pumped.
i was ready. 
i was going to leave work tonight, hop into the Imprezza
and zip over to the mall to the apple store.
the iPad was going to be miiiiiine.

then i talked to the IT guys at work.
my excitement grew.
i was totally in.
gonna do it.

then i made the phone call.
to see if they had the one i wanted, in stock.
the dreaded answer.
"we can put you on the waiting list"....
"it's the best way you will be able to get the one you want...."

dreams crushed.
i don't want to order one.
i don't want to be on the waiting list.
i wanted one tonight.
so i am taking it as a sign.

OFFER HAS EXPIRED

make me feel better.
come over to the etsy shop and enjoy a flash sale.

  1. Don't take it as a sign! Get on the waiting list...we did exactly the same thing - actually went into the Apple shop, asked to buy one and were told about the stinky list...but we only waited a week for it to arrive and now we have a pretty iPad, Taggart, in our home with us. And we love him!

  3. I like Cindi. She's an enabler!

    Seriously, we were only on the wait list for a day before they emailed and said "COME GET IT!"

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
