OK WOW!! I got there at 5:30 and was 3 blocks away. No big deal until you got a block away and more than 50 people cut right in front of us. Myself and only a few others had the balls to say anything but it did no good. What did the cop say "just calm down or go home"!! Me, not the assholes that cut in front of all of us, me. So I shut my mouth. Then as we got closer the people behind us started getting loud and pushy, this one girl pushed me right out of the way in front of security and then when her son didn't get past us she started screaming at my husband that "no one separates her from her kid" well if she wouldn't have been such a bitch pushing ahead of people she wouldn't have gotten separated. Its really a shame that all of these people were never taught manners. I can't even say it was one particular race or age because it was a bunch of them.
Then at 9:30 we finally got in. Everyone was handed a poster and on the inside cap you could win something. Hubby and I both won $10 iTunes gift cards. Cool. So then I ask where the bathroom was. Well what a shock, there is no public bathroom. WTF?!?!?! After waiting all that time. I can honestly say I will never go back to that Apple store ever again. SoHo is the best and always will be.
P.S if anyone blogs about the loudmouth in the orange jacket trying to control the line.. That was me :)
PPS. If Apple Insider is right, Apple is opening another store on the Upper West Side. Lets see what happens at this one...
