Nexzus: Apparently, the iStore near me is requiring appointments to purchase a device in-store.//Can't you order these things online, anyway?

Kraftwerk Orange: This lady traded a $2000 purse, so that she could move up two spots in line - and *maybe* get a new iPhone. And she says she did it to "keep Steve Job's memory alive."
Seat's Taken: I waited in line for 8 hours to get the new iPhone (turquoise)
RTOGUY: Not if you want the brief window to gloat and show off to your friends.
Tourney3p0: Are people actually impressed by iPhones anymore? I can see someone being happy they purchased a product that fits their needs, but the iPhone's days as a status symbol are long since over.
HeartBurnKid: Not only does the homeless guy hold your spot for you, but his stench and mental illness will scare off the people in front of you. Win/win!

Seat's Taken: I waited in line for 8 hours to get the new iPhone (turquoise) and it never occurred to me to hire a bum.
IT'S JUST A F♥CKING MOBILE PHONE!
Skr: I guess I don't really understand the need to get things on release day
Mcaffolder: Hiring bums is a great untapped resource for random mischief and for waiting in line.Ive hired countless bums over the years.1st time was Black Friday in Hawaii (shopping at Walmart there is a religion if you know the islands)$10, two beers, and a lawnchair later I had the first spot in line at 6am when it had swollen to over 300 people.Another time while waiting at the DMV, gave the number to the dude told him to come get me when it was called. $5 and I got to sit in my car getting high and watching my ipad instead of sitting in the limbo that is the DMV.My favorite though, I was repaying some karmic debt to a specific type of "asshole." For $3 I bought a dog whistle, then for $10 I hired a bum to sit outside his house all night and blow it every few hours. Assholes dogs would go nuts each time barking and waking him up. I was duly impressed by this hobos work ethic (and commitment to his new job), I ended up giving him a twenty spot and he was so thankful he said he would leave a present for the guy. The next day asshole had a huge shiat right on the hood of his car. And not some nice suburban coddled poo, but unbridled hobo feces from a mix of cheap spicy gas station junk food and malt liquor.Literally one of the best $20 bills I ever spent..../Dude worked for me for the better part of a year sleeping in his doorstep, telling all of "assholes" neighbors he was his estranged brother (he was trying to reconnect with) that asshole had molested as a kid and was now forced to be homeless because of the trauma. This guy was dedicated to the bit. He would even go to the library in his "off time" (lol) and sign up asshole for the NAMBLA mailing letter and junk mail lists. He came back with 50 of those little cards from the library that you fill out for free magazine subscriptions (they charge you later if you dont cancel.)//Bought dude a cellphone as I was winding down my antics. He would call 911 with this guys address for months, get ambulances, the fir ...
FedExPope: Damn, dude. This guy end up killing himself? I can't imagine being harassed like that for a year and not going insane.
