Finally, a job I would be qualified to do.

A New Yorker is making up to $1,000 a week by offering a simple service: He is waiting in long lines.

Robert Samuel, founder of the business Same Ole Line Dudes, serves clients by holding places in lines for special events: product releases, Broadway shows, “Saturday Night Live” tickets and so on.

According to an Oct. 1, 2015, UPI story, “Samuel said he and his team of professional waiters charge $25 for the first hour per line-sitter, and they each charge $10 for each additional half hour. He told Salon he recently made $1,000 by waiting 48 hours outside the Apple store in the Meatpacking District for a customer seeking an iPhone 6s.”

Samuel described his business as "like Uber for line waiting" and reports he has a formula for which line he chooses.

“Between two lines, you always want to go to the left,” he told Men's Health. “The majority of us are right-handed, and the right side line always tends to be the longest. We instinctively go to the right.”
