iPhone waiters are coming out of the woodwork: there’s dozens now advertising on San Franciso’s Craigslist.
The competition is driving down prices. There’s several advertising for $100 or less.
There’s one guy who wants $500 — but says he’ll deliver.
There’s some new kinds of ads also.
There’s a couple of lonely weirdoes advertising for instant friends to hang out with during the long wait in line (one’s mentions his sexuality, but assures it’s platonic). An unspecified media company is looking for reporters to do man-on-the-street interviews.
And another company claiming to be Apple is looking for people to hand out flyers. But the ad has typos, which makes one suspect it’s actually the Musty Chiffon Strip Club.
