The new iPhone 5 is out the new iPhone 5 is out OH MY GOD, the economy isn’t that bad.
That’s the reason this election isn’t about the economy, the economy isn’t that bad. Interest rates for a new house are at roughly “1.pleasebymepercent” and a bunch of ‘tards are amped up because apple ‘did something’.
Seriously how bad can the economy be when people line up and camp out to spend $700 on something that will be old news, right now? How bad can it be? Chelsea Handler just said the iPhone 5 was over and that she was having sex with Steve Job’s ghost while drinking Vodka.
Or something I wasn’t really listening.
I also got a new phone today. I’m pretty pumped about it too.
I paid exactly 0.0 dollars for it and it has exactly 0.0 new features over my old phone.
Much like the iPhone 5.
Let me explain.
Today my phone committed suici … okay no MORE LIES … I killed my old iPhone 4. I rode bareback with her, I never protected her and I gambled with her life, every day. I didn’t ‘wrap my rascal’ and a fatal fall killed her.
I couldn’t find a case I liked but more to the point I couldn’t be bothered to look for a case because, “I’ll never drop this phone.”
Then I dropped the phone.
On the day that the new iPhone 5 goes on sale and I really, really hate apple so today was really inconvenient. Had this happened in August or October you likely wouldn’t be reading this, I just don’t care about apple and changing phone manufactures IS a goal of mine.
But changing phone numbers is just too hard, or I’m just too lazy.
My wife said, and I deserved this, you did this on purpose to get the new phone.
Let me assure the world, getting a new phone, in this day and age is the absolute last thing I want to do. I have to reload contacts, re-synch the music, re-synch the apps, re-enter passwords and … I’d rather someone punched me in the balls. Everyone reading this knows it’s a pain in the ass.
The line at the store was fun. Some hippy chick that was born last night asked so many questions people behind her were actively plotting her death, myself included. I favored a diversion followed by a slow and painful strangulation but was outvoted by just punching her to death.
Seriously hippy girl had to apologize to the crowd several times.
The crowd was weird. Lots of suits. They were all, to a person, very enthusiastic about the new phone. Which is cool but here I was not giving a shit about the new iPhone stuck talking to them without a device that allowed me to disengage from the conversation cause my phone was broke. Actually I should have offered to buy their old phone, that would have been a good plan but …
Focus Todd, back to the story.
Finally, after what seemed like … well it was really only 20 minutes I reached the guy at the counter.
I told him my sad, sad story. I dropped it, the repair guy said it was about the same as a new phone and can you help me sir?
He had a new iPhone 5 of course, one of only a few, would I want it for just *billion euros? I sighed. Dagmar will hate me but fuck it, sure. I need a working phone, for work, this blog and porn if nothing else.
He typed into the computer, looking up my contract. We chit chatted. I don’t give a shit about iPhones I told him, I’m pissed I have to buy new chargers. Do you have adapters for the old chargers, no? This sucks.
Then he said the magic words.
“Have you ever upgraded?”
“No, I’m a virgin,” I blushed.
“Why not just upgrade to a 4s,” he replied, licking his lips.
“How much would that cost,” I said looking him in the eye.
“One Euro,” he said removing his shirt.
And we made sweet, sweet gay love right there on the counter.
Look the iPhone 5 is like 5 million Euros or some shit and slap that 4s on the counter for one euro, I’ll take one please.
I bought a phone condom, at the same time. It was a 15 Euro phone case. I gave him a 20 euro bill. Unlike America not everyone has a cash register, he had the typical euro leather wallet of bills. He didn’t have a much euro change.
“I guess this phone is on me,” he said.
And it was. Now if I can just get Siri to say tits and update my contacts.
