Standing In Line For Other People For Fun And Profit

Book Of The Day - Start Small, Stay Small: A Developer's Guide to Launching a Startup


Time is money and in DC it's apparently a lot of money. At least that's the impression I get from the service offered by Washington DC courier service called Washington Express.

The company offers to send in line for you for cool $40 an hour (and $50 an hour if it's Supreme Court).

Here is description of the service

Do you need to attend a congressional or judicial hearing but don't have the time to stand in line? Washington Express, a leader in DC area courier services, provides professional, competitively priced line-standing and seat holding services for congressional and judicial hearings.

Our rate for line standing is $40.00 per hour and Supreme Court line standing is $50 per hour. Washington Express has provided line-standing and seat-holding services for over 20 years, and in that time, we have developed significant expertise in all of the sometimes complex details of seat holding and linestanding.

The WEX Advantage

Professional line-standing team monitors hearing schedule.

Regularly surveys committee website to check for hearing relocation and postponements so that your line-standing is done at the right time and place.

Washington Express constantly checks the demand for individual hearings so we can advise line-standing start times.

Our line-standing couriers hold printed WEX signs with hearing attendees names on them for easy identification.

Apparently the servce is quite popular with DC lobbiests, because access to many places is via live queue only and they don't want to waste their billable hours standing in line.
