I want an iPhone more than anything!
I've been dropping hints to the mister for quite some time now. (at least a year) This past December I had the mister in the store, iPhone in hand and a willingness in his heart when a sales lady asked if she could help us. I panicked because I didn't want the mister to be distracted or deterred in any way until my phone was purchased and safely resting in my purse.
She kindly offered to check my cell phone account and see if I qualified for my annual update. (I'm thinking, you know I won't-- it never works out that perfectly! Just go away stupid sales lady!)
My phone did not qualify for an update until April 15th. (duh, of course it doesn't) She told us if we waited I could save several hundred dollars in the purchase of my new phone. (wait is a four letter word in my book)
Grrrrr! That's just what the mister wanted to hear. She was basically telling him to run for his life and abandon all plans of making his wife the happiest woman in the world.
I hate that lady.
The mister told me that it was probably better if we waited and saved a little cash. He blabbed on about how my cell phone was just fine and it wouldn't kill me to wait a bit. (He said this very smugly for a man with an iPhone resting quietly in his pocket.)
I conceded and made him mark the date in his calendar as "the day my wife will be happy." Then I made some well placed comments in his direction to remind him of
You may have noticed that April 15th has come and gone and I'm still crabbing about my iPhone or rather my lack of. The mister found THIS ARTICLE on CNN that says iPhone is coming out with its next generation in a few months. He thinks I should wait just a little longer and have the newest model.
I have a bit of a patience problem. I am a now person. The fact that I've waited this long is a small miracle.
This also smells a little of I-don't-really-want-to-spend-the-money-so-I'm-stringing-you-out.
Should I wait? Perhaps I'll distract him with THE LAWN MOWER and go buy the damn thing myself. I think I could hide it a few weeks-- maybe.
