    Well I preordered my new iphone on the 15th in time to receive it on the 24th. But I get to work today and my boss tells me I'm going to Malibu, CA for work on the 23-28!!! I was like WTF, although it's beautiful there that means my poor iphone is going to be waiting for me the whole time i'm there.....whoa is me

    I wasn't able to preorder, but was able to get a reservation. I'm totally taking the day OFF work to pick it up and spend time with my new iPhone.

    Probably not too late to alter the shipping address.

    That's why you should always have a preemptive strike up your sleeve. Scheduling something important like a doctor appointment comes in handy. But of course, you are toast if your boss asks for a note.

    haven't you ever heard the phrase "if you have nothing good to say, don't say anything at all"? Learn it, Love it, Live It.

    Wow... sucks! I would be pissed. My boss
    (if I still worked) would have known better.
    In fact, they knew I was gonna be late for
    when I went to get the 3Gs last year (and
    to tell you the truth, I was just late as it
    only took me 10 minutes to walk out with
    my 3GS). All she wanted was to play with
    it (the phone!!) when I got to work. Ha.

    That's one thing I loved about being a
    manager... it helped that it was for AT&T,
    so the boss lady knew how important it
    was.
