Sommige mensen gaan wel heel ver om eindelijk een iPhone te mogen kopen. Een Amerikaan, die van zijn vrouw te horen had gekregen dat hij niet meer zoveel electronisch speelgoed mocht kopen, kon de verleiding niet weerstaan. Hij gooide het met zijn vrouw op een akkoordje: als hij zich zou laten steriliseren mocht hij een iPhone kopen.
Hieronder het relaas van deze man, Sean Johnson:
I openly admit to being an Apple Fanboy to the extreme. In fact, my wife had me agree to an annual budget for all of my electronic purchases…then came the iPhone announcement in January. I was smitten. Problem: my budget is already spent, my Sprint contract was in force through December. My loving wife agreed to let me get the iPhone (and not have the cost deducted from my “toy” budget) if I would wait until the Sprint contract expired.
The iPhone goes on sale…..
On a road trip with my kids (wife was at home with baby) I arrived at 10:50 pm in Boise. Next door (okay I had to drive around a bit) to the hotel was an AT&T store. I went in to just take a peek at the Jesus Phone…needless to say, I left the store with a brand new 4GB iPhone. I callled my wife with good news and bad news. Good: We arrived in Boise safely. Bad: I bought an iPhone.
The very next morning I returned the iPhone. I was angry, depressed, insulted…you get the point. My wife joined me in Denver the next day…but I was reluctant to even speak with her (you know, pouting). Noticing my sadness (obsession) she inquired “How badly do you want the phone?”. I let her know that I wanted it very, very badly. She asked me if I’d be willing to finally make that appointment for a vasectomy?
I absolutely love my new 8GB iPhone.
