I was going to have some happy post today, announcing Joshua having turn 8 month old today, and how he has started being mobile by doing his own version of crawling.
But things didn’t turn out right.
The red iPod I thought I would be getting as an anniversary gift turned out to be an 80GB classic iPod. And the only thing I felt like doing when I saw it was to throw it against the wall in frustration.
And because he had gotten it engraved, the item can’t be returned or exchanged.
I am not happy. Very very very not happy.
A million logical justifications won’t ease up the frustration/anger/disappointment/sadness. When you get someone a gift that’s supposed to mean something, I thought you were supposed to give them what THEY want, and not what makes sense to YOU.
What’s worse is how the red iPod nano I want is ONLY available from the Apple Online Store and that’s the whole reason why I told him about the 30th Jan offer. You can buy the 80GB iPod from ANYWHERE and by tapping into some resources my Boss has, I can get it much cheaper than from the Apple Store offer.
I don’t know if I am more angry or more upset. I just know I don’t feel good.
I put the iPod back into its packaging, and I really don’t feel like touching it anymore.
Happy 3rd Anniversary my ass. Once again, it has screwed up royally.
