Did someone hire that dude to hold their spot? When my pal camped out for the PS3 some people behind and in front of him were being paid to hold the spot. Given this dude's sign pleading for money, I have to wonder...

Being the first in line is this guy's gig:http://www.jrn.columbia.edu/studentwork/cns/2002-07-07/632.asp

Ummmmmm.....Is something wrong with this picture??? Dude has to be first in line for an Iphone......costing roughly $600.00, complains he spent $4.00 for two hot dogs and a soda, and is begging for donations (because he's going to have to eat!!!!!), and metro cards????? Yeah.....right.

Hey...It's Greg again. This guy always does this to be in the spotlight. He was first in line for the Long Island Ducks inaugural season years ago, video games etc....all over the island. It is what he does.

OMG yes i think that this guy is crazy!! He complains that he was spending 4 dollars on 2 hot dogs and a soda, but yet he's gunna wait in line for 5 days to buy something that costs $600!! i highly doubt he even has the money for the iPhone...i think he just wants the attention....

How stupid are people to wait in lines like this? Reminds me of the idiots that were paying huge amounts of money for Wii's and Furby's not too long ago...As they say, "a fool and his money are soon parted."

Using the term "ground zero" was the most unthoughtful, tacky, and tasteless phrase they could uttered, especially in New York!

It is sad that this man has no life. A phone is a phone. Give some of that money to charity, and use what you have.
CarlJun 28th 2007 1:12PM
This is crazy, for the price of the phone and the monthly cost for a subscription, I hope this thing can reach out and touch someoneCarlMassachusetts
CarlJun 28th 2007 1:13PM
Remember when a phone was a luxury?

AH! This poor man is so attention starved, its RIDICULOUS! This is the type of guy whose 40+ still lives at home with his momma, and works when he wants LOL. GROW UP and go get boost mobile LOL

What a moron. JoJo said it best. A fool and his money are soon parted. The day I stand on line for a PHONE is the day the planets all align and the earth explodes.

Well, the guy is practically known for being first in line at almost everything. Anyway, some people are like this; they obsese over items which some people think is crazy (I actually wait about a week with friends for the Nintendo Wii :P) You shouldn't insult him that much; that's like saying "..well you stood in line for food. Do you live in a basement?"
