So it turns out that my in store warranty had expired, but im still under Microsofts warranty until June 2011. Now you think that would grant me lucky in a sense, but you'd be mistaken..
I filled out the repair stuff last night around 1am and was going to send out my console Monday morning. Everything was good except for the fact that I was missing the Shipping Label(little did I realize that those could take 24hrs to arrive in your email) So I had called the Xbox Support number telling them that I didnt get that label this evening,and you know what they did instead of telling me that it would arrive eventually? The dude cancelled my repair and set up a new one. Two hours later I got the shipping label, but obviously that one dosen't work now since Im under a new repair order. Now I have to wait for THAT shipping label, which could arrive like 9pm tommorow.
To make things even worse, I'm leaving on 5 day trip tommorow, so I wont even have access to any of the Xbox stuff until friday, such as the console, the shipping label,(which should arrive tommrow night, hours after i'll already be gone)etc...which means that my console wont get shipped out until...the following Monday...
