I forgot that I’m dealing with Crazy Young College people and by the time I got to the school the line was already longer than the number of computers – PC and Mac combined – they were selling. So I said to hell with it and went to work. Though I almost got one because when I first showed up I didn’t see the crazy line and walked right up to the counter where the helpful lady started to take my request until someone else pointed out that I had just walked up and had not been in the actual line. It was completely unintentional though I admit I thought it was odd the crowd was so small when I walked up. I just figured I was lucky.
Anyway on the way out the door I spoke with a building maintenance guy who was walking by and said I wasn’t motivated enough to get up earlier to join the line. He said that the line had started forming around 3AM because when he got there at 4AM to open the building there were already a bunch of people waiting. That’s when I realized I had forgotten I was dealing with crazy young college people. I would’ve liked to have had a Mac to play around with, but not enough to go get in line at three in the morning. So those of you hoping this would result in my conversion to the Cult of Mac, well, maybe next time.
