    Default Wife to divorce husband because he spent 44 hrs in line for iPhone6

    Last straw perhaps but I doubt that was the only reason

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...-win-back.html

    A heartbroken husband queued for 44 hours to buy the new iPhone 6 in a bid to win back his wife after she kicked him out – because of his obsession with gadgets.

    Darius Wlodarski, 41, started queuing outside the Apple store in Cabot Circus, Bristol at midday on Wednesday to make sure he would definitely be able to get one of the handsets.

    His wife Joanna called an end to the 20 year marriage after she accused him of valuing material possessions over his family.

    But Mr Wlodarski, who was born in Poland but now lives in Swindon, Wiltshire, decided to make the peace and spend $800 on a new iPhone for her – despite being out of work.

    He was determined to keep a promise he made to her before their marriage hit the rocks and paid for the device on a credit card.

    It says right there the marriage had hit the rocks prior and he bought the phone to try and make peace.
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    I don't know that I'd believe that.

    Also, if you're out of work and you spend 2 days waiting in line to buy an unnecessary $800 gadget, you probably need help.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Conference Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 2005

    If you spend 2 days waiting in line to buy an unnecessary $800 gadget, you need help even if you have a job.

    It's kind of ironic that people wait in lines for ridiculous amounts of time (up to 19 days in this case) for the latest technology, while failing to use that technology to their advantage (online preorders).

    I preordered mine online and had it in hand on launch day.

    Also, this guy clearly still does not understand why his marriage ended.

    She should've divorced him anyway. Waiting in line for a new iphone that isn't even any different than what's out there seems ridiculous. Especially for someone unemployed.
