    I'll be at work but I'm having my phone shipped to my job and I'm on vacation the following week so I can play with my phone all week.

    It became a tradition at my job. They know I never come in on iDAY.

    On past idays I had the iPhone delivered to work but being that I'll be standing in line on iday due to the fast preorder sell out, I'll be taking a half day.

    My schedule is never the same but coincidentally, I'm off Thurs and Fri this week. Works out great for me bc I heard some people who ordered their 4S through AT&T last year got them delivered a day early. If my new 5 wants to come a day early, I'll be ready!

    I used to do that with the 3G, 3GS, 4, and 4s! But I'm just having it delivered! IDAY has gone way down hill as far as excitement since they started doing pre orders!

    I work from home 3 out of 4 Fridays a month and of all weeks to have to work on a Friday is next week. I have a meeting Friday so I will be tied up until about noon MST. I had the discussion with my wife about someone being home to sign for FedEx.

    I'll be at work waiting for UPS or Fedex to show up. I've normally taken the day off for iDays. I plan on driving up to the Apple store after work to see what accessories they have left though :)

    The only time I skipped work was when the 3G and Halo 3 came out.

    I'll be home Friday waiting for my new iPhone 5. I planned to take off already so it works out.

    It would be nice if I worked at a company where I could have my iPhone sent there for me and I wouldn't have to take off. Unfortunately, I do not, and if i had it sent there anyway, I probably wouldn't get it. Company doesn't allow personal mail to come in or go out.

    I happen to be off on Friday but my pre-order is through BestBuy so even if they happen to miraculously have it come in Friday I would have to drive about 45 mins to go and pick it up. :confused:

    For those of you who are having your phones delivered to work, will any of you end up taking a loooong lunch break or come down with a bad headache and have to go home?!;)

    I reserved the iPhone via my carrier so I have to wait for them to notify me that it's delivered at my store. I still plan to take Friday off though as I'm pretty sure it's going to arrive Friday. I'll just be at home playing Counter Strike until I get the notification. If no notification comes I'll still feel pretty good about getting some good CS time in.

    I just have to notify my boss on Monday. :p

    That is a sweet deal! I put away enough money for the iPhone 5 but I want to use it with straight talk/off contract so still waiting for my options. If I find out before the 21st I'll just go to one of the various Apple stores in NYC.
