A man found a way to earn quite a lot of money from people in New York, who don’t have a lot of time to waste waiting in long lines.

Robert Samuel, who is the founder of Same Ole Line Dudes, said that he earns as much as $ 1,000 a week, to wait on long lines.

The most common place he waits on lines is as at Broadway for shows.

Samuel recently spent 48 hours outside an Apple store waiting for a customer who wanted to purchase a newly released iPhone.

He was the first in the line. He slept on a folding cot for two nights and had pizza delivered to his spot. He earned $1,000 for being the first one to buy the iPhone. Samuel charges $25 for the first hour of waiting and $20 each additional hour.
