Wife said no to iPad 2... but Apple said yes!

In the post-it note dual of "Wife said no" and "Apple said yes", any guesses as to which yellow sticky turned out on top? That's right, Apple's fantastic customer service strikes again. A man returned an iPad 2 because his wife disapproved of the purchase only to find one arrive at his door shortly after. The full story goes something like this:

Man buys iPad 2. Man's wife frowns upon iPad 2. Man returns iPad 2 with a note on it that says "wife said no". Apple finds note and thinks it's funny. Two Apple VPs find out and also find it humorous, so Apple sends man an iPad 2 with a note that says "Apple said yes". Man is happy to have iPad 2. Wife is happy that no money was spent. Apple is happy to make customer happy.

Very cute story. Very lucky man. Did any of you out there have to the pass the spousal gauntlet to get your iPad 2?
