Sorry, but that is just ridiculous. JC has limited public transportation options and people here are primarily car based. Hell, even NYC, which is as free from a car-based environment as it gets has many people with cars, constant traffic and limited parking. Not saying we shouldn't work on infrastructure to make sure everyone is happy and has numerous options for transportation, deciding that people should just "not use cars" makes you seem incredibly out of touch.

I believe this has more to do with mental health issues and the way sufferers display their problem and what the triggers are for that display.

http://www.nami.org/factsheets/mentalillness_factsheet.pdf

My concern is with this guys family - If his mental health issue causes him to explode in public over parking, what must his family be dealing with when he is at home in private - Domestic violence is a BIG problem in the US.

OP here.

Thank you, jcman420, for getting how absurdly far afield the intended topic became. I never imagined the parking aspect would be the salient point that was glommed onto.

And GrovePath, a YELP review was a good idea. It's probably the best way to get a business to take notice and make others aware. I went ahead and posted, making it clear that I didn't use their actual services.

I might also called them tomorrow to drive the point home. It was really outrageous and disturbing behavior to me, and I want them to know that.

Who cares what the argument was over?

Do some people here think that Jersey City's parking situation somehow mitigates the egregiousness of this guy's alleged behavior?


Imagine if someone behaved like that because of littering. His boss would probably kick his ass to the curb.

Yelp reviews are from people who actually used the service. If you write fake 1 star reviews based on this post, that just isn't right.

I don't like what the employee said but there must be better and more honest ways of dealing with this issue.


The OP could state what he stated here on YELP -- and make it clear he never used their service.

I would call J&J and let them know what happened.

This morning, I witnessed an incident between J&J Mechanical Contractors and another guy on Mercer St. A needless argument over a parking space after the street sweeper passed...but the J&J guy was yelling and calling the other guy a n**ger and a f**got and was escalating in aggression and pushing for a fight. The other guy, dressed in a suit, didn't take the bait and eventually walked away.

I know nothing of the quality of J&J's work but wanted to give an FYI that this racist a**hole could show up at your door if you hire them.

It's J&J Mechanical Contractors-Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning LIC #12021

No you are not ruining my life, my condo has parking. You are ruining the life of people who park on the streets and need their cars to get to work the next day. One of the reasons I pushed for municipal garages had to due to snow storms. JC had a history of bad weather with cars being buried for weeks. It would be easier to remove the snow if cars were in garages.

Thank god you didn't get your way or this city would nothing but a paved over dump. But go ahead and keep banging your gong, it's good comic relief.

By the way, "maybeMoving" was started as a reference to me "maybe moving" to JC. I did move, I bought property (without parking!), and now I'm one of the interlopers that is apparently ruining your way of life.

You've gotta be careful when using the "P word" around these parts. Yvonne will swoop in and start her psycho-hag grandstanding while completely ignoring your point.

The J&J guy was way out of bounds yelling those slurs in the streets of this neighborhood. I was thinking that might matter to some people when choosing which company you want to do business with.

I was prepared to be outraged when I first say this post - until I read it was precipitated over parking. The 'N" word, the 'F' word are used by far too many people - especially the uneducated and lower classes - as shorthand for all sorts of things, especially when people are angry. A lapse in judgement on the worker's part, and hopefully he was reported to his employer.

But JC's over-dependency on the car, and the city's failure to at least manage car/truck/jitney overload, if it can't actually reduce the use of cars, not helping foster a more civil environment.

This is really unfortunate, but I have been saying for a long time that people are fighting over parking spaces and the city should have municipal lots. This is a severe problem downtown.


Alternatively, people who don't want to or can't pay for street parking should not consider DTJC as a place to live, in the same way that people who can't afford private school and don't like the public schools.
Anyone ever read tha in Tokyo you can't register a car until you prove you have off street parking? Maybe I'm making that up, or its not Tokyo, but I wouldn't be the first to get my 'facts' mangled on JCList.
