One Apple fan isn’t prepared to queue for the iPhone 5 release on September 21, instead he is willing to pay someone to line up for him.

Using Airtasker, a service that lets users outsource chores, Chris F. is offering the public the chance to earn some money by queuing at the Sydney Apple Store “really early” to ensure he doesn’t “miss out  and end up waiting for months”.

The task requires the winning bidder to “line up outside the Apple store at 7am sharp, then give me a buzz when you are at the front of the queue so I can rock up and purchase the iPhone 5,” Chris posted.

The job offers cash on delivery, which is currently sitting at $80.

Apple’s sixth-generation iPhone, the iPhone 5, will begin pre-order this afternoon and ship on September 21. Apple Stores will offer the iPhone 5 from 8am on September 21.

    LOL… You couldn’t pay me $80 to use an iPhone 5 over the current android handsets, let alone just lining up for one…
