    I actually had a request prior the Apple announcement because of a concert, Interpol, and at my job even requesting a half day (which is what i wanted since the concert is at night), the person who does the schedule normally just goes ahead and gives you the entire day off because they find that easier.

    So iPhone 6 and Interpol on the same day, I'm pretty excited for Friday and to test out the new camera at the show.

    Thankfully my boss is an old school apple guy, and a current iPhone enthusiast so I was able to just tell the truth and get the day off with no issues

    I told him straight up that I'm expecting a new iPhone on Friday and that I will be working from home. Simple as that. :)

    Using some flex time, so I told the truth. Switching carriers and porting numbers, have to get things squared away.

    Basically, yeah.

    thanks

    I've been a big fan of Interpol for a while but this will be my first time seeing them live, so it adds to the excitement.

    Not true. I worked with a guy who took a sickie when the iPhone 4S was launched. Turned up with his new phone and we all knew what he had done. He's not working there now!

    Getting mine delivered to home. The wife will sign for it. I'll pick it up when I get home. No rush :eek:

    I'm in the UK and I've got the day off for my iPhone delivery. I hardly ever take leave and needed an excuse to use my entitled days, iphone delivery seemed like an OK excuse to me.
