  OK, so I was one of those idiots that camped out overnight for the new iPhone 6+ 128gb. And probably not for the reasons you think, I had actually pre-ordered mine, so I wasn't in that much of a hurry, it was the fact that a good friend of mine does this every year, and he brings his son along ...

I'm sure yours does as well.  She got up last Thursday, dressed for success and headed out to do her job - as we all do. She might have gone to the office first, followed up with clients or reviewed contracts or planned her day to show homes - as we all do. I've been in real estate for 4 years n...
