How I ALMOST got an iPhone

Oh, brother.

I'm so disgusted.

The Wonderhubby's company had its annual kickoff breakfast Monday. Apparently, this year, it morphed into lunch too.

Because they were celebrating a pretty-high-up-there anniversary of the company.

So all the employees troop in for all the festivities.

Which include door prizes.

Digital cameras.

42-inch plasma TVs.

80-gig iPods.

Video cameras.

Laptops.

A whole bunch of other coolio stuff.

And two iPhones.

Oh, iPhone, how I covet thee. How many ways can I express my love and desire?

What's a techno-geek like me to do?

Why, I know!!! WIN ONE AS A DOORPRIZE AT THE COMPANY LUNCH!

Or not.

About 100 employees. Multiple cameras, laptops, iPods, etc.

And my husband did. not. win. a. single. thing.

Plus, he said if he had won the iPhone, he would have totally given it to me, his most deserving and loving (and whiny) wife!

Oh, MAN, I am bummed.

Sounds like me - I never win anything. Next time, next time. Right?!?!?!

Simply Jenn said...

Oh man is right. When there are door prizes for nearly EVERYone, I still don't win so I feel your pain.

I'm so unlucky I won't go into the store when Hoop buys lotto tickets... *SIGH*

I never win either. If it is meant to be - you will get your iphone.

Now that is just frustrating.

Oh and there's something for you to pick up over at my blog.

I never win anything. Well, I won that one photo contest, but it is a VERY small town and there weren't too many entries. I think that's the only thing I've ever won. I think I would have preferred one of the other prizes if I did win. Just about *any* of the other prizes. I'm just not the least bit interested in the iPhone. I'm sorry you didn't win anything though.

Well that just sucks! And I don't even know what an iPhone is but if you wanted one and you're a techno-geek I have no doubt it is something very cool. Perhaps someone who 'did' win the iPhone could have had an untimely death if you saw them in the parking lot that night? Ok ok I'm sure you don't want an iPhone THAT bad. Talking about winning? I won something at one of those sex parties one time, but that's about it. And much like the iPhone, I didn't have a clue what IT was either.

Mother's Day is coming up isn't it? You have some pretty neat kids and an awesome husband. Just threaten...I mean remind them that you'd super love an Iphone if they'd like to continue living...I mean... :)

Ooooh that does suck! I feel your pain, I've been coveting the i-phone since I saw the very first commercial.

You so got stiffed on the Hanukkah presents. Go and get one for yourself for Valentine's!

SOOOO close. Dammit.

I want an iPhone so bad I can taste it. And the taste is yummy.

Jenni said...

Wow, he's a lot nicer than my hubby. It wouldn't have even crossed my guy's mind to pass it on.

I don't do well at those White Elephant gift things either. I usually get stuck with the crocheted toilet paper cover.

Huckdoll said...
