Dumped Husband Queues for 44 Hours to Buy iPhone 6 to Appease Angry Wife

If your wife is mad at you, perhaps you could buy her flowers an iPhone 6 to appease her.

Darius Wlodarski, a 41-year-old man from Poland, queued outside an Apple store in Bristol, England for 44 hours to buy an iPhone 6 to make his estranged wife happy, Daily Mail reports.

He arrived a day before anyone else, and was the first person in the queue.

His wife, Joana, whom he was married to for 20 years, is said to have left him after accusing him of “valuing material possessions over his family.”

Despite their breakup, Wlodarski was determined to keep a promise he made to her before their split – to buy her an iPhone 6.

“I did so many things wrong and I want to say sorry to my wife and daughter that I wasn’t as good as I could.

It took me a while to realise what really mattered – and that is my family.

My wife said to me I should remember that it is now  ‘things’ that matter, that I was worrying too much about saving for things, and she was right.

I know an iPhone is another ‘thing,’ but I told her I would get her one and I wanted to keep my promise,” he said.

Wlodarski is currently unemployed, however; he spent £800 on the phone, using his credit card to pay.

Although he doesn’t expect that the iPhone 6 will win her back, he hopes it will bring her happiness.

      Err she accused him of putting too much stock in “things” and she should forgive him for buying another thing? Maybe what she wants is for him to spend time with his family. Maybe I’m too practical but this is just daft. You’re unemployed and putting 800 pounds of debt on your credit card! So who will now pay that one? Me?

      My dear, we’re already footing the bills of some iPhone 6 purchases with our taxes which help secure the good, easy life on “benefit street”… Even if Mr. Wlordaski’s phone doesn’t get covered in our hefty bill from HRMC, trust when I say more than a few others will be. As I continue to make do with my almost redundant iPhone 4… Diariz God.

    A beg, but this isn’t cute, it is plain stupidity.If you don’t have money you do not pay a 800£ phone on credit. He hasn’t learned his lesson, for he does value material possession more than his family…

    He missed the message. Iyawo’s was probably tired of scraping by for food and necessities because Big boy was counting pennies. My hubby does that too. He will talk about bills only. Checks the account twice a day. His type of conversation is hilarious. Goes like this. I saw 13 pounds expense on the acct today. Do you know what it’s for? I will start laughing within me and respond, I don’t know, maybe someone tried to steal our money. The he will walk away. 13 pounds ko. If not for children in marriage some men should be single and on their own for life

      Can you explain how those funds get missing on a daily basis? If you werent using/spending the money, why would he be checking the account twice daily? All these people who doesnt know what it means to make money, what they know is how to spend.

      Go and make your own money and be spending it anyhow.
      Wicked wife

      @ Ada Nnnewi, this is the reason why no man will ever woo you talkless of attempting to marry you.

      I think you should re-read a comment. I don’t know what crawled up your behind but re-read the comment and then comment again. Unless you have problems understanding, read the intro and see if you can make sense of the entire comment instead of choosing to misconstrue what the writer intended and why would you call someone you don’t know names??? and you say she is wicked???maybe you should take a look within first before calling people names.

      LMAO at your poor excuse for a reply….FYI I have four very suitable (handsome, God fearing, rich and responsible) bachelors, not your type of men, currently actively seeking my hand in marriage…

    The guy still doesn’t get it. He is insisting on using materialism, something his wife despises, to appease his wife. Thus dude needs hours of therapy to understand why his wide left him

  22. dumped or dumb?

    September 22, 2014 at 9:51 am

    He must have been dumped because he was a dumb.

    “My wife said to me I should remember that it is now ‘things’ that matter, that I was worrying too much about saving for things, and she was right.”

    God save somebody for all these “now women” (like FLEUR above) who wana spend all today and doesn’t care about saving up as well for the future. When you spend everything today, what do you spend tomorrow?
