    Is anybody going to miss work or school just to wait for their iPhone 5 other than me?

    Thought about it. But I start work at 3 PM and my 4S came at 9:30 AM last year, so I'm guessing I will get it early again. Of course my iPad came at 4:30 PM, so I may be unpleasantly surprised.

    Friday is my last day at this job and no time can be taken off in the two-week notice period or it screws some benefits up. I went the online order route this year.

    Thinking about it, it's my first preorder, I usually waited a few weeks until I could walk in store to just pick one up. I'm strangely super excited for this one.

    I'm having the phone shipped to my office. That way I can at least give the illusion of working.

    My ip5 is being shipped to my son's business in Las Vegas. Hopefully, it will be there when I arrive, next Friday. My MBP will be in tow. This will be a nice way to start a week long visit.

    I'm having mine delivered to work. There is no one at my house during the day and the UPS guys have a tendency to just leave packages on my doorstep.

    Had shoulder surgery and in a demobilizer for 5 weeks at home. I am ordering everything I can online since I am home and can use it as an excuse with the wife to "buy now". :D

    I will be working from home that day, however I'm flying out of town for 2 weeks saturday morning so I will be a little nervous until that delivery finally shows up!

    I hear you.
    Then I will worry if the truck comes when Im in the shower or in the bathroom.
    Last time UPS tried to deliver my ipad 3 around 5:10 once I was already at work and noone home.
    I was at home all day waiting, figures:D

    I don't have to be at work till the afternoon on the 21st.

    Just the same, I told everyone I would not be in till 7PM because there is no way in hell I am leaving the house till my phone is delivered.

    I'm going to have a big bottle of wine, some spotify playing Bob Marley, the iPad, a nice comfy chair and sit on my deck till that great moment when my iPhone 5 arrives.

    Last year I worked from home. New job this year without that luxury. :(

    Also, I don't get PTO so it would cost me too much. Also, wouldn't blow PTO to wait for a package unless I was in a use it or lose it situation.

    Edit: Did Radio reveal his salary?
