    Now that he's has bragged about 1000 dollars a week he will probably have more competition.

    I remember reading about college students who charged money to plan dates for people. Someone was complaining that they were suckering people, but when people are super lazy, you can capitalize on that laziness by doing what they don't want to do.

    In the case of planning dates, I think that's an interesting service to offer. A lot of people don't have time for that. In the case of standing in line, that's just lazy. Go home and order that shit on your computer.

    $1000 a week. Wow. That's like a minimum wage job.

    That being said, I respect his entrepreneurial spirit.

    To be fair, almost every job in the world is capitalising on some sort of laziness.

    Plumbers capitalise on people who are too lazy to fix the toilet themselves. Lawyers are capitalising on those too lazy to go to law school.

    People are just upset because the target market in this example is so obviously lazy and it's easy to judge them.

    I swear I thought you were trolling.

    I just googled "rent disabled people" and this article came up: http://www.theatlantic.com/business...-people-to-skip-lines-at-disney-world/275840/

    Unless you meant actually renting disabled people. Like "I'll pay you $150 for four hours of using your disabled family member to skip lines at Disney World." I couldn't find that.

    Well if you wanna split hairs, grocery stores are capitalizing on the fact that people are too lazy to slaughter their own meat, grow their own vegetables, make their own cheese and create their own baked goods.

    Cleaning products are capitalizing on the fact that people don't want to create their own cleaning products.

    Wheelchair companies are capitalizing on the fact that people are too lazy to make their own wheelchairs.

    Construction companies are capitalizing on the fact that people are too lazy to buy their own equipment and build their own buildings.

    And let's not forget cigarette companies. They're capitalizing on the fact that people are too cowardly to commit suicide quickly, so they offer them a chance to do it slowly while still living a full life.

    There's a difference between "I can't do that because I don't have the training/can't afford the training/can't afford the equipment/just can't afford to/don't have the means to" and "I'm not doing that because I just don't feel like it." Standing in line falls under the latter.

    Not necessarily, there may be loads of reasons why someone could not stand in the line, having to be at work just one of them.

    I wouldn't call that lazyness, i mean think about it. How many times you wish you be doing something else instead of waiting in the line.
    Hell i know that from experience, sitting there for couple hours while i could be doing something more valuable.
    Sure we have internets, but not for everything.
    I wouldn't mind hire this guy for the next iphone launch :)
