    I just wanted to get a reasonable response in here before everyone starts unfairly yelling at you like you're some sort of child.

    Don't worry. I understand the frustration of seeing something you can't wait to get your hands on and it's right around the corner from you lol

    Keep reading tech news about it, read the reviews as they come out, and participate in the forums here often. The time will fly! :D

    If you turn off everything in your house and sit completely silent, you might be able to actually hear it taunt you.

    Bright side: You know you'll get yours on Friday. There are many anxious people awaiting their shipping status to change to something more reassuring. :)

    To kill some time you should start a thread about it...

    Freeze yourself like Cartman did in South Park.

    I'm actually glad to see this. Mine is in Nashville as well and I was afraid they'd ship a day early which of course I wouldn't be there to sign for it. This is one of those rare times I hope it comes on the actual release date.

    grab some bolt cutters, and I'll be down tonight to pick mine up with ya. at least all of our iPads are keeping each other company while we wait.

    Mine is in Nashville too. I'm used to watching its route from china to Wisconsin when I buy an apple product on launch day.

    I will do that. I'm practically useless right now. I'm *in walking distance* of the FedEx facility!

    Curious, has anyone called Fed-Ex with their tracking number and asked if they could come pick it up? I know that I've been able to get a package early before by doing this.

    I know that all orders have been placed on a future delivery as requested by Apple but you never know.

    FWIW, I called FedEx this morning to ask them why my packages were listed as "Adult Signature Required" instead of "Indirect Signature Required". The lady helping me indicated she could not see the packages in their "system" with the tracking numbers I provided even though they show up on the website.

    Someone posted in another thread (I can't remember which one now), that they're locked up in trailers on the FedEx grounds. Only Apple will come by on Thursday to open them up.
