Well, I did my best today but no luck. I had a meeting this morning in the House of Lords, (Westminster) and had found out a number of O2 stores were opening at 0802 on a 1st come 1st served basis.
Got off tube at Victoria Station and walked to Westminster along Victoria Street passed an O2 store. I worked at that if I was only 6 to 10 places from the front of the queue I could still get to my meeting on time.
I passed the store at 0750 and stopped counting when I got to 100 people in the queue!! I walked on!
After my meeting I decided to try again - by now it was about 1200. This time there was a queue of only about 10 so joined it. After a few minutes a chap came out the store, counted the number in the queue and said the last phone would go to the person three in front of me! Pisser!
I tried the Apple store on Regent Street - still a massive queue. O2 stores on Oxford Street and the Carphone Warehouse on Marylebone Road. All sold out. So I'll just have to wait
Was anyone out there luckier than me?
