Imagine another person standing in the long line in front of Apple store for two days and buys a fresh iPad 2 for you and all you have to do is pay him the money. Something similar happened to Chris Reimer, owner of Rizzo Tees, a funny T-shirt making company.
After the launch of the iPad 2, Chris has been trying to get one for him but failed to do so. Waiting in the long line, out of frustration, he posted tweets to his 52,000 followers. He asked them where to find an iPad 2.
On March 16, 2011, one of his followers, Muljadi Budiman, tweeted him saying he is standing in line at the Apple store and would like to bring an iPad 2 for him. Chris was very much surprised but he declined. Budiman tells him that he is not going to make any profit. He read his tweets about wanting an iPad 2.
Then on March 18, 2011, Budiman tweets him again saying that he is standing in line at the Apple store for he did not get one on Wednesday. This time, Reimer gives him his cell phone number and wished him luck. A few hours later, Reimer gets a call from Budiman saying he got his iPad 2. The two finally meet at a coffeeshop where Reimer gives him the cash and the two talked for half an hour.
Wish that could happen to you.
