WASHINGTON (Circa) – We wait in lines at concerts, restaurants and while shopping. Some waits are longer than others.
Jennifer Goff says they’ve wait up to 6 hours to go into a pop-up bar, but she doesn’t wait for herself.
She is a professional line stander and gets paid to stand in line for someone else.
Her business called “Skip The Line” will charge $30 an hour in the Washington D.C. metro area.
“People here are very busy, and they don’t have a lot of time so it’s something to help them so they don’t have to waste their time doing it,” Goff said.
While waiting in line she’ll keep the client updated through texts and photos.
Some waits can be a couple of hours but others like Congressional and Supreme Court hearings can take days of waiting.

“We’ve also waited for iPhone releases which can be an overnight 18 hour wait and even the pop-up bar last summer the longest wait was 6 hours,” said Goff.
She says she keeps herself occupied by reading a book, listening to a podcast or talking to people while waiting in line.
