What ashame!! The people in this line in NYC aren’t waiting to donate blood. Nor are they waiting in line for hours to volunteer to help others. They are waiting in the hot sun to purchase a cell phone (iPhone).
Every person in this line knows that the phone they seek will be able very shortly in huge quantities. But, no, they have to have it right now.
If you are one of the people who stood in line all night for the opportunity to drop hundreds of dollars on a cell phone, you need to ask yourself what are you lacking in life that compelled you to take off from work to have that object? Is your life that empty and devoid of simple pleasures that you had to find happiness in owning an inanimate object with all the bells and whistles?
