What Did You Endure for an iPhone?

Mr Johnson (seriously?) got himself snipped in order to get the go ahead from The Boss (c’mon married guys, we all know it’s true) to buy himself an iPhone. Funny Story.
Funnier is that just tonight my father-in-law relayed a story of his evening waiting in line for the iPhone. Turns out a guy next to him in line had just come from the hospital. No, hadn’t gotten that part snipped. Rather he’d had part of his LUNG removed. And then? Then he asked to be discharged from the hospital early. Yup – so he could get in line for an iPhone. Dedication my friends.
Got any similarly crazy stories about hurdles overcome for an iPhone?
