A Japanese blogger named Yoppy sat himself down outside the Ginza Apple store last week to wait for the iPhone 6.

Apple hasn’t announced a release date for the iPhone 6, but it’s expected in September. Yoppy got totally screwed on the iPhone 5 when he only showed up a day early.

Determined not to repeat the mistakes of the past, Yoppy settled in for the long haul.

Eventually, however, curiosity got the best of him. It’s miles easier to wait for something so long as you know when it’ll be coming. So he tried to figure out exactly when the new iPhone would be released.

Yoppy learned that a specific date had not yet been set, so he resolved to enter the store and demand an answer.

Turns out Apple hasn’t even announced the iPhone 6 yet as a concept, much less as a product scheduled to be released. Darn!

Yoppy decided to call it quits.

But hey, it looks like he’s already found something better to get excited about:
