Re: JC Post Office - Be Very Afraid

Home away from home


Sent two small flat rate packaged at exact same time. Same postman accepted both. One is tracking as in its way from JC post office to secaucus and en route. The other like it's just had a label made (that was me) and other than that, non existent. Person at post office said they don't scan when receiving from me at building as they get tons of packages from building but scan once it unloads to back if JC post office. Then where is it? Went to post office today and they said not to worry give it 24 hours. My argument is my customer deserves to receive it in the time guaranteed as they paid the postage for that service. I am helpless as its MIA.

This happened to me twice this past month. The first package showed up about a week after it said it had been delivered. The second one showed up the following day. So don't lose hope.

And call the Post Office FWIW. Try this number, 201-915-7139, they actually answer it sometimes.


Thanks. Package arrived today but only after the Sender contacted USPS and insisted the package didn't arrive. It showed up after being sent to the wrong address.

I would be very surprised if this is true. The Goldman Sachs move to JC is not an isolated case. More and more law firms, hedge funds and other financial firms are moving a LOT of their back room operations to locations outside of NYC. With networking technologies that allow for offices over disparate locations to work and collaborate as if they were literally one door over, many firms have come to realize that paying premium rates on office space in NYC (what's the current rate per sq ft in Midtown and/or Downtown!?) is not worth it when you can buy space elsewhere (a client of mine just moved ALL of their support and backroom operations to Florida) for a fraction of the cost. Over the past year or two, many of my clients in Wall Street have leased and/or announced plans to move their staff to JC, keeping a small footprint in NY to use for upper management, some conference rooms and working offices, and for the NYC corporate address.


Not planning to stay in New Jersey doesn't mean moving back to NYC, for what it's worth. At the very least, I'm sure they will shop around again for massive tax breaks.
yes. i guess they want those tax breaks. i doubt gs would be dumb enuff to move all to consolidate ny area presence back in manhattan. they need contingency plans


I'm the crazy guy who rides my bike past their building en route to the park and holds my middle finger up at them while saying "Goldman Sucks!"

This is unbelievably stupid. Beyond a cash grab. Does the city have ZERO CLUE the unwritten rules of Jersey City? How many builders pay off the cronies and two bit inspectors at the Permit Offices to get a C of O before selling? And each inspector has different rules to the game to make things complicated for a builder, contractor, then the home owner, taking too long to inspect, changing the rules every time just to maintain their power of it being overly complex so that you have no options but to play the game of passing envelopes? And these will be the same people coming to advise if it will pass before being sold? The same offices who turned a blind eye for cash now will be back to make sure the building is to code only to turn a blind eye again for a second load of cash?

If those unwritten policies have cleaned up, bravo. Doubtful, but bravo. But then won't these same inspectors be nervous when someone sees their signature on the original 'pass' only to come back to some of these homes before closing to tell the homeowners/sellers/buyers/realtors it's not really to code?

IF this is to happen, someone in city hall has to take ownership on the fact there's a lot more going on than what is on the books here.

All I see is another corrupt money grab. "Inspectors" taking too long to get to your property, raising the stakes when you're trying to sell in a timely manner and then the white envelopes get passed around whether it be the realtors having to do this or the homeowners.... Let's not kid ourselves, this is a time tested way our city employees in these positions have paid for their new decks and BBQ's at their vacations homes....

And if we want to assume it would be legitimate thanks to those offices being cleaned up - just imagine the nightmare's of depending on a city run office to help facilitate closing a real estate deal in a timely manner.

You don't have to tip UBERX. I e-mailed the company with this link and asked them specifically about UBERX and here is what they said:

Thanks for writing in. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention. Happy to help.

Riding UberX means there's no need to tip! When you get to your destination, you can simply hop out of the Uber and be on your way. Your card will be automatically charged the full fare for the trip and you'll have an email receipt sent to your inbox.

I'll tell you the BS. Cops sitting in their cars on Columbus near the intersection of Columbus and Marin where the lights didn't work. He sat IN his car and on a loud speaker from the car said, "slow down", "slow down". People IN their cars? Windows closed? Couldn't hear him AND it was the pedestrians who were having trouble navigating the streets without any order to the vehicles. The police officer could have exited his car (sorry it was cold out officer....) and navigated traffic and/or pedestrians. Lazy, lazy, lazy.

Yes, I am entitled: I'm entitled to receive the packages.

To be blunt, your tipping creates an expectation of reward for carriers to merely DO THEIR JOB. And it is the duty of the postal service to ensure that packages are delivered to their recipient--in fact, it's a matter of federal law.

So, if you want talk about "entitlement" in the pejorative way that you intend, let's talk about your expectation that you should receive exceptional service for tipping a federal employee. But then we're back at the cronyism and the state of exception that you clearly feel entitled to for paying extra. Clearly, you could give a damn about how this deranges a government agency and creates the conditions for corruption and waste that you favor. But that's for another thread.




I used many tactics (including tipping, getting to know my carriers etc.). Nothing worked. Still stolen. One theft was by the UPS driver. Gave up and had everything delivered to my office. And tipping the postal workers got me NOWHERE. Different people over the holiday season while my regular left and those people couldn't have given two sh*ts. Door was often not relocked, mail boxes accidentally forgotten to relock...just a cluster of complete ineptitude.

Re: Man dies in freak accident at Jersey City construction site

I walked past a construction site for that new tall building behind Shoprite and there was brick falling OFF the building. You could see bits of brick scattered on the road and sidewalk etc. I witnessed a chunk the size of a softball fall in front of me. I talked to a woman with a baby stroller to warn them, I (and I think she) called and complained to the city etc. They put better signage up to make sure pedestrians cross the street but the problem is the brick was over on the side where the sidewalk is. The site has since moved on from doing the brickwork but this post on the other lax scenario has me re-think my walk to work.

Then I came upon this article and thought - okay, it's a trend.

Link here: New York Observer



The "trend" of asking (or, requiring) customers to place their entire meal order at once is not at all a recent thing. And, it has nothing to do with the article you reference/linked. This is not a matter of the customer being right, or wrong. Running a kitchen at an upscale restaurant is like choreographing an intricate ballet; timing is everything. They need to know what you are eating so they can prepare and get ready all of the components that go into your dish or meal so each dish comes out at the proper time.

Also to be considered is that, at upscale restaurants, the "experience" is an important piece of the overall picture. The chef will want to make sure that there is proper spacing and timing between each course, and that is hard to pull if they don't know what you are intending to eat. For those who want to enjoy the experience of eating out, and not just consume food, this is important, as well.


Choreography of food coming out and customer preference is a delicate balance the finest restaurants have mastered. And the exchange between patron and server is part of the overall experience. And exceptions can be made when the server notes the customer doesn't mind ill timing to accommodate the clients at the table's preferences, once that's established then it should be okay for both parties. Battello's is great. I love it. I'll continue to go and enjoy all they have to offer (view spectacular!) and if I have clients who I know will put me through the oyster to appie to entree scenario I'll choose the bar area so I won't have to worry about this policy. Last post. Otherwise this could go on forever in a JC List kind of way.

Population density. Before street parking wasn't horrible, but when you start cramming more and more people on the same area it changes the amount of parking needed.

Why fight it? It attracts more people to the area.


Exactly. Some people seem to think that everyone wants to ride a bike, works in Manhattan and are aging backwards. The bigger buildings are required to offer parking but all of them tag an extra fee of $200 or more. So now all those residents are parking on the street and they're getting more and more crowded. The parking in those larger buildings should be free to the residents.


I believe it is free to the owners of apartments. But not to renters. There's the catch.


Wrong. Residents AND guests must pay for parking in all buildings. Some lots may have discounted rates for residents, and possibly for monthly renters, and some other lots may even have deeded parking spots that you can buy when you buy a unit.


I meant deeded. Ours is deeded. If you lease from this owner building (no rental companies you must lease from an owner) you can park in the parking lot for free. It's including in the rent.

My only point is that I hope this becomes something more fully fleshed out and not an annual 3 month stretch of putting a couple picnic benches on Newark so we can sit in the middle of asphalt. I worry that we'll be stuck with this half measure as "good enough" since that's usually how things go.

This could be a "chicken or egg" case. Will more people show up if a beautiful pedestrian plaza is built or will a pedestrian plaza not be built because there wasn't enough use of it while it was just a closed strip of pavement.

Hopefully JC commits to making this a REAL pedestrian plaza in the near future.

I wonder if this was the same bike-riding asshat who played chicken with me on the narrow, one-person-wide stretch of sidewalk on 2nd street.

nah, I'm sure it was one of several asshats making their way through JC this morning.



Bet that was him. I was on 2nd Street (on the south side sidewalk). He was dressed as a business man with a messenger bag. Sidewalk was narrow. He came out of nowhere and tried to maneuver between a couple with a stroller, a telephone pole only to confront an oncoming pedestrian. Me. I was almost hit by him and he skidded to a stop. I was shocked and didn't know to go left or right & then went towards my office door. My brief hesitation had him accuse me of intentionally getting in his way to make a point. I wasn't making any point other than, "huh? biker almost hit me".

Ironically the other side of the street had a wide, empty sidewalk and parking lot as it was BJ's and Shoprite's backlot. If I was riding my bike, I'd have chosen that. There are a lot of amazing bikers in this 'hood. I love to bike. I love the new bike lanes. A few years back I'd ride on the sidewalks with my wife to get to Liberty State Park when it was 7 am and I was on narrow roads nervous about drivers but hopped off the sidewalk if I saw pedestrians coming. Not great bike behavior, but was nervous about the speeding drivers in the neighborhood. No so anymore, but due to my past behavior I tend to be soft on bikers....but this douche was outright offensive and yelled at me like I was a jerk off. It was nerve racking actually.

Hate wasting any more time writing about d*cks like that. They don't represent the majority of riders but he deserves to be called out. I pity the guy. He must be a sad little man who needs a refill on his meds.

A LETTER TO THE JERK OFF RIDING A BIKE ON THE SIDEWALK THIS FINE MONDAY MORNING
#25
Home away from home
Home away from home


I bet those dudes at the water cooler this morning nodded with agreement when you shared the story about what a jerk-off I was to dare walk the side walk in to my office in front of your bike this morning. I mean, it is a SIDE WALK, it’s a place where self entitled douches such as yourself deserve to ride their bikes at high speed maneuvering around the likes of people like me and parents with baby strollers (those pesky families walking on a sidewalk only to get in your way!) who evidently set you off on a collision course towards me!

You know, it would have been awful and probably against your douche philosophy to go, “Oh sh*t, my bad.” and I would say, “Oh Sh*t I didn’t see you pop out of nowhere.” as my body almost met your front wheel and I’d think, “well, sometimes a dude has got to ride on a sidewalk in this town to be safe…” and I’d left it at that. Maybe I'd be thinking as I sat down at my desk, "Hey, don't they have bike lanes in this city now?" But regardless, I wouldn’t have thought you were so much of a jerk if you didn’t yell that I was one because I didn’t get out of your way. We would have gone on with our day while I’d think, “my this place it getting nicer and nicer to live!” and you’d think, “Heck, I gotta be careful when I whip around people when I’m riding on the sidewalk as I could run in to other people being that it’s a sidewalk and all.” But instead you whipped around the parents with their stroller only to stop in front of me and chastise me for not getting out of your way, in fact you went as far to accuse me of intentionally getting in your way. Note to douche - did you SEE the door on your right I was crossing to get in to? I wasn’t trying to smash in to your front wheel, I was trying to walk in to my office building. I’d love to see how you spin this. But take note, perhaps those dudes by your water cooler nodding in agreement when you share your story of the jerk who intentionally got in your way? Maybe when they go home they’re saying to their significant other, “You know that douche at work? You’re not going to believe what other asshole move he did today, when is Ted going to fire him?”. Or maybe when you pillow talk with your significant other how frustrating it is to ride your bike around pedestrians these days because they intentionally walk in your way on sidewalks? I suspect they may just be humoring you while figuring out how to find sweet walking Ted on Grindr again.

Stop making bikers look bad pal. There’s another way...

A woman warned me today as I walked the opposite side of the street from a 20 story (currently being built and it's likely higher than that) high-rise that pieces of brick were falling. She showed me the piece that fell (as large as a baseball) and while she was talking another piece fell. We looked around and there were bits of brick everywhere. This is across the street but the building is so high I guess while they are working on it, it's falling. It could hurt someone. Who do we report this to?

My understand from UBER is that there is a negotiated rate which includes tip:

"Being Uber means there is no need to tip.

When using TAXI (requesting a ride from a yellow cab via the Uber app), drivers will input the metered fare into the Uber driver application. 20% of the metered fare will be automatically added and paid to the driver as a gratuity. "
