How did this happen?
I woke up this morning to head out to my local ATT store and at 545 AM there were 20 people already on line. I said nuts to this and went to work. Around 930 AM I started regretting my decision so I started calling ATT stores. Everyone was sold out except for one 50 miles away which had 5 32gb left. I left work (faked and illness) and raced there. About 5 miles away there was construction and I was stuck in traffic for 30 minutes. I called the store every 10 minutes; "Hey, its me again, you didnt sell out yet did you?". "No Sir, we still have four". Called again, "we have three". Still in traffic, called again, "Sold out". Dam!!! At this point I was near my house so I decided to go home and work from there for the rest of the day. I was still calling around and one store told me they are expecting a small shipment in sometime in the afternoon. On a whim, I drove to the store and went in.
When I got inside I overheard another customer asking about the Iphone 4. He was told, unless he was on line this morning and recieved a voucher there was nothing they could do. I went over to the display unit and a different sales person came up to me and asked if there was anything I needed. I said, "Yes, I would like a 32gb Iphone 4 please". Of course I never expected what happened next. He goes in the back and brings out a 32gb Iphone 4. I was flabergasted and needless to say, bought that sucker so fast it made his head spin. The entire time he was ringing me up I was praying a different employee didnt come over to see what he was doing. I could just see, "Hey, you cant sell him that, those are reserved!!!". Well it didnt happen and I got the phone. sorry to ramble on like this, but I still cant believe I landed one today.
The only bad part of the story? Driving home I called my wife to tell her the great news (she could care a less) and I dropped the call four times!!
