Didn't see a thread like this around.. so I thought I'd start one. If it already exists feel free to kill it; I will not be offended :).

Here are some cool stories:

Last night a few friends and I were driving to a restaurant that we didn't exactly know where it was, and ended up getting a little bit lost. NO FEAR.. I popped out my iPhone and looked it up on google maps and figured out where we were within 30 seconds. We found the restaurant a few minutes later :).

Another time during my orientation session at the college I am going to be attending next year, I pull out my iPhone to check for messages and such, and someone in my group spots it and says "hey is that an iPhone?".. which leads to my adviser testing it out and the entire group gathering around to watch. Later that day while playing some game on the grass, my iPhone fell out of my pocket and when someone found it everyone got excited.. "I recognize that!.. is that an iPhone?"



Anyone got any funny/interesting stories they could share?

Ive got a funny for you horror story for me story:

We had just got to ohio because thats where we are staying for the summer, and everyone was hungry. So i whipped out the iPhone loaded up google maps and found a pizza joint.....

(*PS pizza outside of jesey sucks, if you've never been to jersey come check it out, all italian food does NOT taste like the olive garden*)
...Moving on

I found the pizza place and the pizza was crap, we then were driving and I noticed we were on the same street the pizza place was. It was a pizza place out of some car washes garage =/// not too happy when i saw that. Luckily I kept my mouth shut and no one noticed.

Go to jersey get some real pizza :))

How about this one.

There are 30 of us waiting in line on iDay, outside the AT&T store.

Retired lady walks out of the food store next door, and pushes her cart towards the line of people waiting for their iPhones.

She parks the cart next to the line and starts handing out boxes of candy.

She says 'I'm retired, and I have a big chunk of my savings invested in Apple shares, and I really want to thank you all for turning up today and making the iPhone a success'.

Made everyone's day - including hers!

haha that retired lady story was cool.. reminds me of one guy that approached us while we were waiting in line. This old guy walks by and he looks like the jolly/clueless type. He stops and looks at us and asks us what we were waiting for. We all say, oh the iPhone. He asks whats that? We explain it to him as the expression on his face suggests he has no idea what we are saying. He pauses for a second, then asks "so why do you need to get it today?". We all kind of laughed and said "I have no idea."

No sir but from what I hear not so good. I wasn't aware of the large italian infulence in chicago :)

Either way this is the way I look at it, I reject your reality and substitute my own.

NJ> Everything else.

Oh my! Yes! That was something I did not like about Ohio when I moved here, there are SOOO many pizza places and they are all horrible. Bottom line. End of story.

Luckily on iDay there was a Honeybaked Ham store right next to the AT&T store. Everyone tried to patronize them all day buying sandwhiches and bottled water because we felt like we owed them for letting us use their restrooms for 11 straight hours.

On Iday there was about 25 people inline, and this guy comes up in his nice car, going pretty fast in the parking lot, gets out and jumps in second in line with his friend. A few people didn't like this so they told the security guard. The about 300 pound security guard went to talk to this about 5.8ft person. They start argueing and the security guard tells him to go the back of the line. He jumps in his car speeds out of the parking lot, squeeling wheels on the road, when were all in line laughing, and kinda scared that he will come back with a gun or something. At about 6:30 He comes flying in the parking lot, gets out of his car, with a iPhone in his hand. He goes up to the people in line, and says nice phone huh? Everyone is laughing at him, and he gets his friend, they jump in the car and fly back out of the parking lot. It was soo funny.

ok.. this is my iday story.

i was waiting at a location in Salinas, Ca, i was 16 in line so i send by brother to get sandwhiches at subway. while waiting in line my other brother calls me and tells me that at another location that there are no people and that i should get there so that i was assured one [ by this time i was assuming that i would be cutting it close because of my number 16 spot]

i thought for half a second and took off, as people stared at me for just walking out of my spot for after 2 hrs, i ran into the subway and told my brother that we had to leave.. he said, "the sandwhiches are not ready!"
i said, "F&%k the sandwhiches, i have to get that iPhone."

he was mad that i rushed him out... we got to the other location and i was first in line... nice .. not...

i got hungry and decided to drive up the street for a burger.... when i got back there was no one there.... so as i ate in the car i got a little tired and fell asleep.. when i work up there was a lady in line.. "crap"
i ran out there and ended up being second in line..

article to prove it...

Hate to steal your thunder, but normally when you ask someone where to get the best pizza, they say NY, not NJ.. ;)
Haha. I was going to say the same thing. That's true too, NY is the best place for pizza.

Anyways, here is my story. Not sure if it really belongs here, but oh well. I was working and my phone was ringing so I answered it and all of a sudden I was surrounded by a group of people. We were working at a DHL facility (shipping company, like UPS or Fed Ex) and all the remaining drivers (most left the warehouse by this time, but there was like 5 or 6 still there) were gathered around looking at it, asking how you do this and that. Then their superviser came out and he told them to get back to work and they told him I had an iPhone so then he wants to look at it and I offer to show him how some of the main features work. He tells me to hold on and before I know it, other managers and his boss (top guy at that facility) are all gathered around looking at it too. I heard a couple managers saying they were going to get one after seeing it work in person. So I got Apple some sales too, unintentionally.

NOTE: Not treating you guys like your stupid, just some people have never heard of DHL....so just making it clear for those who haven't. Some people get offended when they know what it is and I'm explaining it to them. Don't take it the wrong way...

That's ironic...here in Wilmington, NC there is a Honeybaked Ham next door to my AT&T where I was at too...

I was in there taking a restroom/food break and the AT&T store manager came over to find me b/c the news crews were looking for me (I was #1 in line...haha). The store manager there was ultra cool, in fact he is putting the news reports from TV on DVD for me! The AT&T here is unbelievable in their customer service...it'll keep me coming back that's for sure! Plus I'm sending people to them.

I had so much fun on iDay, 19 hours in line...haha

I've been lurking for a while but this was too wild not to share. Just to give the story some context, I am a young black female.

I was ridding on the bus in the Boston area watching a tv show on my iPhone and minding my own businesss. Not too long after I got on, a group of young black guys got on the bus and sat towards the back. They were laughing and talking but not making any trouble at all. Across the isle from me was a white man in his 60s or 70s who seemed to get really upset and kept looking back in their direction. Once the group of guys got off the bus, the old man told bus driver he hated the summer because all the heathens were out and that the group of boys were going to hell. Once I turned to say something to him, he told me not to worry because I was going to hell too. But before I could get really upset he saw my iPhone.

The guy's attitude instantly changed. All of a sudden he was really friendly and tried to ask me a bunch of questions about the phone. Then he apologized for his earlier comment towards me and said that I must "one of the good ones" because I had to work hard to be able to afford that phone. I managed to be civil but I really wanted to knock his head off. But I guess that goes to show how ignorant and materalistic some people can be.
