Now it is getting personal

A coworker recently shared a story with me about how he ended up waiting in one of those ridiculously long lines to be one of the first to get his hands on one of the previous xbox products.

He said that during the wait, people were saving spots for their friends. Some of the people in line were getting angry, but he didn't think it was really that big of a deal. Just before they released the dogs of war, the person right in front of him let a friend hoop in line, right in front of him.

Then, the store guy started handing out tickets. Everyone that got a ticket would be able to get a game. We only have a certain amount of them. So, no ticket, no game.

Unfortunately for him, the last person to get a ticket was the new guy in line right in front of him. Since then, he has changed his opinion about letting people hold spots in line so their friends don't have to wait.

I guess when things affect us personally, it gives us a little different perspective.

And he pre-ordered the new ipad.
