Messed Up?

Here's the deal. Me and my family own a restaurant in miami. We just opened up another store in dadeland mall food court. My brother has been on vacation, visiting his in-laws (I don't know if you can call that a vacation really), overseas for the past month. At the end of his vacation he is going to sign for his wife's 5 series (ED) as well as sign for my m3 vert (thanks Ryan Amico and Francesca Ortiz).

The past 3 days I've been up at 7am, to be there at 9 am to open the store closing at 10 pm. Fixing up the place to our standards has been exhausting. I stumble home from exhaustion and pass out and then start all over at 7am. So I try to catch as much sleep as possible.

On the third night of working 12 hour days my brother texts me this photo at 2:30 IN THE MORNING with this text.

"A teaser for you, shot from the premium lounge"

How can i sleep after getting the text?!?!
I was lying in bed cursing my brother for sending me one picture from so far away. i wanted to text him back and let him send more pics, but they charge like $100 a text.

Now I have to wait a few more days just to see pictures he took of my car and then another 10 weeks for it to be delivered to a Performance Center.

I just needed to vent on the post to people who might know what i am going thru. I mean couldn't he just wait till he got closer to take a better pic to send me.

Am I wrong to be upset with him?

Sounds like your brother is doing you a favor. Get over it and get some sleep.

OP: Having done ED I can say he sent you the BEST photo of all that he probably took: a view from the Grand Staircase - your FIRST view of your new M3.

You guys are getting this post all wrong. I'm not pissed that he's been gone, I'm upset he couldn't send me a better picture. I could care less working, hell that's why I've been busting my hump just to afford the car. That's why a lot of people on these forums work hard just so we have something to look forward to after a long day to and from work. I just wanted a closer shot of the car and not tease me with a picture from so far way.

I completely understand your post. But think of it this way, that was probably the first spot from where your brother was able to see the car from and he thought that would be the picture you would want. Hell, he might have even ran back up the steps a bit because it was an afterthought and he didnt want to disappoint you.

If I was your brother, I wouldve taken a picture of the exhaust tip and sent you that...
