We are not sure what happened exactly. I know he had it because I was on the phone with him when he was in the electronics department picking it up. He checked the receipt when he discovered it was missing and it was not on the receipt. He didn't notice when he was checking out as he had alot of other items. My husband is actually a great shopper (very unusual I know!).

Well at least you didn't pay for something and then loose it afterward, that would add insult to injury for sure.

I know that at least at bestbuy they will move high ticket items to a register, and when you go to checkout, you need to let the cashier know that you were purchasing that item so they can charge, and find it.

Seriously, you ream someone out and then say Merry Christmas? <sigh>

Hockeymom, I sympathize with you, and hope everything turned out OK, after your hectic time. I have a 13 year old, and I know just you felt. Happy holidays!

I have a 14 year old too. He often wants things that you cant snap your finger and produce.. Hope you have a Merry Christmas, even if you cant find it.

Just my opinion, but I think you could do the above. After all, he does not believe any more, presumably. You could even tell him what happened (or a condensed version).

No, but we have two other young sons that do believe so we still do Santa for all three. I suppose we could have explained to our two little ones that once you become a teenager Santa doesn't bring you presents anymore...and neither do mom and dad.

what you can do, buy the iphone, wrap it with a note saying that santa dropped the present in his sleigh, and was able to deliver it a few days later. that should help out with the youngins

Thanks for the clever idea. At this point I think it will be a birthday present for him in February. Who knows...maybe we will find it on sale!
