Damn You, Steve Jobs

I hate you , Steve Jobs. Right after I purchase a new cell phone and sign a 2 year contract, you come out with the world's greatest phone. I have to wait 2 years, which is longer than all my previous romantic relationships, to get my hands on that Apple iPhone?

For the next two years I have to stay with that horrible Motorola Razr and it's clumsy menus, when I could've had a phone, iPod, and internet device all in one cool gadget. I feel like the executive who has has to postpone marrying the mistress and keep making love to his first wife until he can figure out a way to kill her and make it look like an accident. I'll stay with you , Razr, but not out of love. It's only because I'm too cheap to pay the $300 cancellation fee to be with the younger, prettier model that I'm really in love with. Sure, in your day (3 months ago) you were quite a looker, but now there's younger, thinner versions and I think I deserve it. I know you think it's some kind of midlife crisis and I'll come back to you, but that's just wishful thinking. Oh, and don't bother asking for alimony...I'm broke.

I know exactly how you feel. My pink Razr feels so behind the times now. Though I did only buy it for the color, so what am I complaining about?

Ninja- perhaps I can play cupid for a second. Two posts, very similar, posted at almost the same time:

I feel exactly the same way. Between the cost of breaking my Verizon contract ($200?) plus the cost of the phone ($600!), it's going to be a very expensive summer.

Ninja man , I heard it this morning. By the by, Rzr phones really suck and they have bad connection, you can always say that somethings wrong with it and pay $50 bucks for an upgrade...Oh and dont feel so bad 'cause theres new phones coming out like every 3 months...
luv Ya!

The $300 cancellation fee + the cost of the new iPhone, I'm sure, are offset by the profits you reaped from investing in Apple's stock, right? You deserve an iPhone for that smart move.

I heard those Razrs were awful. Glad I still have my old phone.

I'm right there with you. I hate being T-mobile's "indentured servant"

I want a damned iPhone, too
