Did you notice the signs over the checkout counters telling the clerks to smile and make eye contact? Mine didn't, but the woman at the soup counter totally did. I think it's hard culturally, I've rarely seen Asian customer service that did that, even when you're such regular somewhere that they know your order. The "customer experience" seems just not to be a thing.


Try traveling to Japan and then tell someone, "The 'customer experience' seems just not to be a thing" in Asian culture. Their customer service is the best in the world.

There has been some chatter that the Whole Foods at Metropolis Towers is a dead deal. Apparently the shareholders of the Metropolis Towers thought they were getting a bad deal out of the project and voted it down. Whole Foods also just closed nine of their stores nationwide due to a poor fiscal outlook, so they may have just decided to not go forward with the construction in this particular location and are looking elsewhere in Jersey City (hence the rumors of a Journal Square location)..

I'd rather walk the inconvenient six minutes to Shoprite than pay a 60% price markup. Those prices are ridiculous.

How would anyone have any idea they were supposed to ask for fresh donuts? It's like going to McDonalds and saying, "Please, not the fries that have been sitting there for three hours." (Someone's going to say, "I always ask for fresh fries!" Good for you.)

Anyway, they obviously hadn't been sitting there for just the 15 minutes I waited. Probably just the early morning pump out that were already boxed up. Not the end of the world. Thankfully it's almost lent and I can blame Jesus for avoiding Krispy Kreme.

We went on Monday morning. Hot Donut sign was on. Glazed donuts churning through the machine in the window. So I ordered a dozen glazed. We waited about 15 minutes to get the donuts at the other end (there were only about four other people in line). And we got a box of cold, hard, glazed donuts. I considered just leaving them there.

And yet you didn't. You should have gone with your first instinct. Granted the place should have had better signage with their "hot request" policy stated. Just surprised they were hard in that minimal amount of time, I heard they last for days.


The donuts were fresh, they were just not warm like you expected. Next time speak up and ask for your donuts to be warm so there won't be any surprises and you won't be so disappointed that you have to come onto JClist to rant and rave about your horrendous experience #firstworldproblems

I've heard when you are making your order you have to specifically ask for "hot donuts" or they will automatically give you the donuts that have cooled off already.

The ferries are expensive because they're privately operated.

The only way to reduce the cost is to subsidize them. Which is fine, but also means someone else is now paying for the ferry, via taxes. So who is stuck with the bill?


I totally agree with you. The ferry system needs to be subsidized by the state to alleviate the overcrowding on PATH. PATH also needs to be taken over by NJ Transit and subsidized as well. The PA has no interest in future developments that will make any difference to the overcrowding. They should have been working on something 10-15 years ago. So we have one solution in the meantime and that is to take advantage of our waterways.

Those rims with new tires on them are worth around $500 each retail, that is a decent score and maybe the owner will learn about lug nut locks the hard way now.





Any determined thief can easily defeat lug nut locks with a battery-powered impact wrench.

absolutely, i'm combative, zerkski. my tolerance levels for stupidity are very low. it's like what the mta wants, you see something? say something.

i've got no problems having a spirited debate, but as we've obviously seen from the kids who can't do anything but spout bullshit and whine when it gets pointed out, the debate becomes one sided. once again, someone (clearly not these morons) made a perfectly valid point to which i promptly said "that's a good answer". all the other crap has been a hill of turds.

in this case, i've been reduced to speaking to someone channeling peewee herman with his "i know you are but what am i?" schtick. sad i let myself be dragged down to that level of childishness. one of these days, they'll grow up to the point where they're able to string coherent thoughts into sentences.

or i'll just get too tired to talk to adults who couldn't find their ass with a map.

probably the latter.

I mean, it's been painfully obvious through simple common sense that yea, I am the superior person in these particular exchanges, but that's mainly because the communication skills exhibited by the pair of you has been so woefully low that your average high schooler looks like Einstein in comparison. When the bar is so low, any person who exhibits the slightest amount of normalcy ends up looking like gold.

Let's get back to the original rant that derailed this thread. Maybe either of you bird-named folks can elucidate here.

I'll paraphrase for brevity's sake.
{owlie} i hate the options in jc. hoboken is much better because of reasons that aren't really even accurate. had to go to WF & TJ in edgewater saturday.

{me} this makes no sense. here are 3 options: oddball vegetables/fish. standard anti-shoprite person with not-so-vaguely racist/classist views. hate money.

{owlie} omg ur a mean racist wtf i don't do either 1 or 2

{other person} don't forget butcher

{me} good point on the butcher. not what owlie said, but good answer. clearly his/her answer is 3.

Let's end there for the moment. Ignore the flouncing and attempts to rewrite what was actually typed out.

So. In the interest of having a simple conversation and putting aside your inability to type out coherent sentences that work with the sentences typed earlier, I posit a simple question... what is it about the WF/TJ that would make you want to leave the confines of DTJC to schlep a good half-hour to an hour each way to get groceries?

I can think of (now) 4 answers to this question. Five if you simply mis-spoke/typed and that line of "I had to go to Whole Foods and Trader Joe's in Edgewater Saturday." does not mean what it says.


Keep up the good work broski! You've won the internet today! You are officially the man and the most superior person on JClist (possibly the tri-state area)! Woop woop!
