A PROFESSIONAL queuer earns £20 an hour waiting in a queue for the wealthy – sometimes making £160 in a day.
Freddie Beckitt, 31, said he has trained in queuing “to be a good work of art by virtue of being a Londoner” and “resisting the urge to rush forward”.
The adept waiter, with the patience of a saint, has been doing this for three years and has made it his business as a historical fiction writer.
Freddie from Fulham, west London, says most of his line work is mainly for very popular and sought-after events such as exhibitions at the V&A and shows at Apollo – from Customers are not afraid to spend money.
“I worked eight hours lining up for the V&A’s Christian Dior show for some very well-off people in their mid-sixties,” he said.
“Actually there was only three hours in line but they also asked me to get a ticket and wait for them to arrive, so I only had hours to see the V&A museum being paid £20 an hour, great!”
He says his clients range from busy young families to elderly retirees and he sometimes waits in the freezing cold of winter, but summer is his busiest period when Major events and exhibitions take place.
“I also line up for seasonal and Christmas shopping, but the big events that people know in advance, are usually when people think they should book me to save time,” he said.
Freddie advertises his skills on Taskrabbit, where he lists pet-sitting, packing, moving help, errands, and gardening as additional income.
“Honestly, it came about just by stretching here, there and everywhere, Taskrabbit allows you to list various odd jobs and the client just picks you,” he explains. from the roles you listed.
“They list a lot of random jobs that require low skill and I find that to be the easiest job in the world!
“Unfortunately I don’t think I can charge more than £20 an hour and it doesn’t require any skill or even hard work!”
“But it gives me a lot of flexibility to earn money and fit into my writing schedule.”
“My friends and family are delighted but certainly not surprised.”
Even though he has landed his dream gig, he says he can’t get in full-time because sadly the queues don’t tend to be longer than a few hours.
Freddie has plenty of five-star reviews with one customer saying: “Freddie was very prompt and sorted everything out no problem.
“I asked him to get the keys and wait for the carpet repairman and it all went very smoothly. He was also very flexible when we changed times at the last minute. I would highly recommend Freddie!”
