I’m waiting for my iPad. Somebody stole my iPad ... I had my iPad … Do you know where they took my iPad to.

“Somebody has decided to dispossess me of my iPad, so I want that. Can I have my iPad, please? So they stole it. I had my iPad. Do you know where they took my iPad to?,” he asked his spokesperson Seale.
