    Biggest douche I've ever met in an iPhone line and I've waited every year since 2007. Totally has money for the phone but decides to make a sign that says "Need $ 4 iPhone" right next to two legitimately homeless guys who need money to eat. The guy has already made $176 as of a couple of hours ago. Photo attached. Homeless on the floor on the left, he's first in the line on the right.

    My decision to skip the lines is once more vindicated...

    These events can attract horrible people!

    Can't blame a guy if people know his intent and they still want to give their money.

    ..Not that i'd invite the guy over for dinner.

    The fact that people are giving him their money is more concerning to me. People give their money away for stupid stuff though. Didn't some guy raise tens of thousands on kick starter to make potato salad?

    But who knows, maybe he will hand his earning to the homeless guys.

    Yep. Regardless of what your stance on homeless people is, this is just plain disgraceful.

    I don't think I have a problem with someone just holding up a sign to ask for money for an iPhone. I wouldn't give someone money for doing that, but I don't think it's disgraceful. Doing it in the presence of two starving homeless guys and taking funds from them is what is disgraceful.

    And yes, what is even worse is those who actually give him money instead of to the homeless. He told me one lady saw his sign and thought it was "so cute" that she went to an ATM and withdrew $100 and came back and gave it to him.
