Sales: Strike while the iron’s hot

June 23, 2008

I don’t know if this is common, but I’m always MUCH slower to replace items that I’ve foolishly misplaced or lost. It’s a combination punishment/hope that it’ll turn up reaction.

I’ve been without my iPhone earphones with microphone set for about a week and a half now because I still can’t believe I was dumb enough to misplace them – I used them everyday! It’s sooo much more convenient than holding the big fat iPhone to my head, and I can much more easily multitask with them. Alas, they still haven’t turned up, so I finally decided that, despite the recent expenses, I need to spend five dollars and get another set.

Unfortunately, Meritline’s not having quite as good a sale on them as when I last looked, so now I’m going to have to wait even longer. Just so long as I get them before July 1st, when our new cell phone laws go into effect.

    I’ve been in the same situation as you a few times and each time I just went and got what I was looking for. Thankfully it was rarely anything expensive. Just look at it this way if the cable turns up you end up with a spare just in case you misplace it again.

    What are the laws that are coming in?

  2. I just bite the bullet and buy them LOL

    Then I curse when they go on sale and I should’ve waited 😛

    matt: That’s true. I do have an abundance of the power cables and charger bases which are the most expensive accessories that are necessary so I won’t complain too much.

    Effective July 1st, CA drivers must use hands-free devices for their cell phones. I normally do, if I don’t use the speakerphone, because it’s a lot safer, but I’ve just been doing without and not using the phone as much as I can.

    FB: Hehe. Luckily I’m not trying to buy it from the Apple store for thirty bucks, so I’ll be less annoyed, but still, any savings is still savings! Especially with cashflow being so tight these days. *stupid gas prices, grrrr*
