I really don’t know where to start with you, you ignorant moron. I’ve no problem at all with you sleeping in a queue to get an iPhone (I’d like one myself). But asking people for food donations on the street, and ASKING FOR MONEY ON PAYPAL!!!!!!! Moron. Moron. er, Moron!
There are hundreds of thousands living on the streets of the world, and many more millions living in poverty. None of them do this by choice. Yet you think that we should help you to survive your week at the front of a queue which basically screams ‘me, me, me! I’m a greedy consumer moron, and I want your attention’. You got it. Hope it shames you
You have $499 to spend on the phone and obviously do not need to work since you can sit on the street for a week. Why would I want to give you money?
I will donate to anyone with a website that will let me virtually kick this guy in the head for asking for the money.
You sir are a hero. I’m the one who submitted the story, and I text messaged you last night. Keep up the good fight, er I mean waiting in line. I’ll be waiting for my iPhone in TX but I think I’ll be safe getting one camping out on Thursday night.
Empirical evidence suggests that incompetent people have more difficulty recognizing their true level of competence. The incompetent dramtically overestimate their ability and performance relative to objective criteria. Paradoxically, the incompetent can gain insight only after being made to see that they have performed poorly.
I doubt he has the money and any real interest. He just likes the press of being first in line for anything – ANYTHING.
He won’t buy it, just drool on one with his week old B.O. and leave to find the next “waiting to be first line” opportunity. Sad, sad man. Nothing much of interest to say too, wow what a shocker – no GF.
So you get your iPhone, then what… play music, make calls, surf the internet and google map your fat ass’s location? You can do that now without lining up for 5 days! Put your $500 towards a better endeavour like gastric bypass surgery and stop being such a consumer whore, it makes me ill.
My name is Greg Packer. I’m a completely talentless piece of shit with the social skills of a chimpanzee. Im waiting first in line for iPhone in New York City at Apple Store Fifth Avenue near Central Park. I showed up on Monday morning, June 25th, at 5am becuase I have zero friends, zero life and I’m hoping to get beaten to death by a female bum
Please reach out to me by leaving your comments, leaving me a note on MySpace, sending me an email (in fact why not sign me up to every gay porn site in america), or even calling my mobile phone while I am sitting in line. I must be the biggest cockbag in creation for giving my number away online but what-the-heck !!!
Or, hey, come by, just visit and abuse me face to face!
When the F is the Iphone avialble in Europe, today I find out that their are negotiations between Apple & Vodafoon, pay a lot for the phone and pay the top for using it….
Steve, make life simple, every provider, store should sell it ….
I don’t know why everyone is getting so riled up over someone who just wants to be first in line. I support your right to do that, Mr. Packer, and I applaud your determination. Please, people, if you don’t have something nice to say to him, then get a life! This man has found something he obviously enjoys doing, and it seems to be more productive than most hobbies I have heard of. Most of you would love to have met as many celebs as he has. Don’t lie and say you wouldn’t.
What, would you rather if he was a video game slacker? Well, I don’t care if that is a more “acceptable” hobby, that’s not what this man has chosen to do, and I think it’s rude, obnoxious and mean-spirited to take umbrage at this man’s ambitions, goals, or hobbies.
To all the haters: Get a life, and stop making fun of someone with more determination and drive than most of you. If you think it’s so damn easy to do what he does, then lets see you get out there and do it. Until then, you should probably just shut the hell up. Go take your hater attitude somewhere else. The world really doesn’t need another hater, but I think the world would be a better place with more people like Greg Packer.
The iPhone will be a waste of money. Do you think you will be happy having one?, you are wrong. I think you are not so stupid, you will earn money with the TV Interviews, and probably pay the iPhone with this money, but please… get a life!!
the only thing worse than people camping out for the iPhone are people who think they should buy an iPhone so they can resell it for charity. Here’s an idea, take the $600.00 and donate it to charity yourself.
The people who are making these negative comments are the 16-40 year old bums who still live at home and whack off to gay porn. Greg Packer wants to get the iphone and has nothing else to do and its not other peoples decisions.
Well, once again apple is going to rip off the consumer.How dare they dictate what phone comp one has to use ,shame on them. Apple, all they care about is making a profit. What other mobile co dictates what service you have to use. Just like the ipod and I have a first generation ipod at a cost 1100 Au and the only choice I have is to download from itunes and even then when I had a problem with a downloaded audiobook at a cost $30 au. I was unable to get the problem fixed.Apple all they do is take your money and run.
Try e-mailing apple or itunes when you have a problem with the device.
Try making contact with iphone when the iphone does not do what it’s suppose to do, you will be up the proverbial creek!
( buyers will also have to sign up to a two-year contract mobile phone company AT&T and face a charge of $US175 if they break it.)
I would like to know what service the Aussie will be tied up to for two years, we already have the most expensive mobile phone service in the world!
You really are what the rest of the world would consider an ”ugly american” not only can you afford the expensive things (phone wise) in life ,but you also have the nerve to begg for money on the street and via pay pal.. Try living on the street in NYC like i did and hope that u get enough to eat let alone a $500 phone.
This is great! I’m sitting at work in Scotland, reading everyones comments! So so funny, Poor Greg your getting it tight! You should have your iphone by now and I really hope you like it! I’ll be looking out for you at the front of cue’s from now on. Sorry i didnt leave you any money but anyway this has been a laugh! Cheers!
Greg “the cue”
As a fellow Scot, I expected more from you.
This guy is the same kind of fat lazy ugly shit that hangs around the street corners of Glasgow drinking their cheap buckfast and wearing their Burberry caps. All FUCKING LOSERS !!!
What a f****ing loser. Why don’t you stop being a nerd. You are asking donations for no reason. I rather give to the ones that really need it. I hope you know that the iphone will come out with flaws. I know it will.
