But I am normally there 10-3, but will get there at 9am just in case something odd happens and UPS or FedEx shows up early. We know the drivers... and it's a small town. I doubt they will be here early. The trick is not having to sit there until 7pm if they're running late. Could be an ugly long day. Worse since we have 100 people coming the next day for a hosted BBQ.

    If our devices are delivered on Friday, I'll request the mail courier to slide it under the garage door.

    I think the beauty of VACATION time (or Paid Time Off) is that you can use it WHENEVER you want for WHATEVER you want. There really isn't a right or wrong reason to use your own personal paid time off.

    Personally, I'm not using PTO for the iPhone delivery. This year I've got other uses for my paid time off. But in years past I have taken an extra hour or two of paid time to ensure the delivery and receipt of my device.

    I'm a high school senior and have a few free periods and blow off classes during the day so I will probably race home and be there to receive my package and head back to school, but not before I get lunch that isn't school food

    No one lol. My high school is so large that I can slip out during a free period and come back without anyone noticing. It's not that big of a deal as long as I tell my mom where I am so she's updated on my whereabouts.

    Just for my own wonderment! How will you know UPS is at your house that exact moment for you to slip out and be there to sign for the box? Does UPS call you 15 min before and say "Hey Cameron, I am on my way.. slip out of HS and head home to sign for the box?"

    I gotta know!

    I wish I could relax all day. The problem with retirement is the honey-do-list gets longer.

    This is what I've decided to do as well, but I'm taking a half day in the morning and seeing if I can grab one at T-Mobile when they open. It's supposed to be stormy that morning, so maybe that'll keep crowds away .

    Tip from fellow retiree: grab a pack and head for the mountains, alone or with your honey, lol. When you're hiking and backpacking, the honey do list disappears!

    I wouldn't do that... Because I don't want to be out the cost of the iPhone, should it somehow be stolen
