I was trying to get a free iPod to use with my cochlear implant and learn to listen with it since circumstances don’t allow me to invest in gadgets these days (NO pity, please!). Five people signed up and took advantage of an offer as required.

Two of those accounts were not acceptable by the people behind the Web site. One was entirely my fault and an oversight. It was Paul’s account. He and I have the same address. When he signed up, he had NO plans to request an iPod. We realized our error later and got someone else to sign up in his stead.
