Just a friendly reminder now that it is snowing, please don’t be that prick that doesn’t clean off their cars of snow before heading off driving. It is a law and can cause serious accidents. I saw a whole bunch of cars with snow flying off of cars on the highway and cars swerving to avoid it.

In one weekend of snow I saw about 6 cars that only cleaned enough to see out of the car. I only went out on saturday.

The big 18 wheeler trucks that don't clean the top of their trailer are the WORST. Especially when the snow has melted down a bit and then freezes again. A 10ft sheet of ice sliding off at 60+mph on the highway in your direction is so fucking terrifying and dangerous.

Kudos to the State Troopers. On my commute this morning, I saw a heavy presence of Troopers and they were all pulling over people who didn’t clean their cars.

saw a big plate of snow fly off a car this morning on 80 fuck these people

This is my Representative. He sold me, my fellow New Jerseyans, and this nation to the telecom lobby for the price of $55,456.

dude looks like hed be on an ad for adult diapers

Tech illiterate geriatrics running our country, destroying all advancements in technology and making policy decisions that these scumbags CAN'T EVEN COMPREHEND

By a quick survey of posts about Senate and House members here today, it cost the telecom industry about $5 million in "contributions" to cause elected officials to sell out the people. That's a hell of a cheap price and now we need to make these people pay and pay and pay.

If you want faster internet than everyone else buy the most expensive package your ISP provides. Net Neutrality just prevents ISPs from being able to fuck you over and charge you for shit you already pay for.

This is my senator. He refused to be bought out and is fighting to keep Net Neutrality

Yeah you gotta have pharma money to own this guy.

Yeah Booker worked with Betsy Devos on school privatization. He is not an ally of any middle class American.

He refused to be bought out by ISPs

Unfortunately, we have another Senator.

The 5 New Jersey Congressmen who sold you out to ISPs for as low as $6,000 and as high as $55,000.

All five of these men are up for reelection in 2018. If you aren't happy with how these men are being influenced and how they are voting, do not reelect them next year.

EDIT: Correction-Frank LoBiondo is retiring next year, so he will not be reelected. If you live in his constituency, be sure to vote for someone who stands foe your interests.

The traitor in the upper right needs to share his tanning spray.

Update: Jesus Christ you people are savage with insults.

He looks like one of the Easter Island heads got attached to a body

Oh look it's the five Republicans, surprise surprise.

Never Forget

Name a more infuriating sight. I dare you...

This one, for many people

They are probably also going the speed limit and maintaining a 50 - 60 ft distance between themselves and the driver in front of them. Will also speed up if you try and pass them in the right lane.

NY and PA driver in left two lanes pacing each other. Not using left to pass. Had to get into right lane to go around which is inherently unsafe.

Rivaled only by this.

Thanks for the advice NJ Transit! Very helpful!

honestly, if njt wants an "easy" win, this would be a good first step. get the communications fucking right. make alerts go out when they should, not 20 minutes after a thing has happened. of course, knowing njt, they'll say it will take a whole communications system upgrade that will cost 10 million dollars and the contract will go to a company that is in the pocket of some politician in trenton.

Of course, since this is NJ Transit, the 7:29 was actually departing at 8:12 due to "signal problems". So the alert is just in time!

I sent them an email last week about my bus not showing up for 5 days straight. They told me they "respectfully ask if I could include a bus ID number and driver name."

HOW DO I GET A BUS ID NUMBER FOR A BUS THAT DOESNT COME?

Has anyone from the South made fun of you for being from New Jersey? How did you respond?

A few years ago, I was in a hotel elevator in South Carolina. A family gets in and there’s some friendly chat and they asked me where I’m from. I said “New Jersey” and they proceeded to laugh… in my face. Now this family hit about every Southern cliché you can imagine. And they’re yucking it up – “Ha, ha, New Joisey! NEW JOISEY!” I was surprised to the point that I couldn’t say anything. The only thing I could mutter as they were walking out the elevator door was “um, we don’t say ‘New Jersey’ like that.”

I’ve had people from Virginia and Delaware give me shit too. I mean… Delaware? What do you say? I’m not really inclined to tell a family with kids to go fuck themselves, even after 5 minutes of “New Joisey!” The best family-friendly comeback I can think of is, “don’t feel bad for me, I’ve had your pizza.” Has this happened to you?

"My state pays your state's welfare."

I have the opposite. I was in the Atlanta airport recently. Saw there was a Jersey Mike's and I was really curious if they had pork roll. Well they didn't and I had to explain I was from Jersey and what pork roll is. Meanwhile there's the normal Point Pleasant mural behind me and the worker im talking to says "wow. Your from a place as beautiful as that (points at the mural). Every day I dream of just getting on one of these planes and going to Jersey"

He then kept asking me if I have been to point pleasant and I told him I live 2 minutes from it (howell). And he was jealous. Was saying how much he wants to come up here and live here and hopes he would see me here one day.

Was a very nice experience after a pretty shitty trip. I really hope that guy makes it up here.

“don’t feel bad for me, I’ve had your pizza.”

Murdered.

pfft, people from all across the country try to make fun of anyone who's from nj. and they do it by making us sound like stereotypical staten islanders in the process. who cares.

30% of Monmouth County males aged 16-30.

Edit: and of that 30%, 97% of them are volunteer firefighters or first aid that tuck their Darius Rucker tour shirts into their dad jeans from the one Sears left in NJ. Y’all know what I’m talking about.

Second edit: anecdotally these dudes are the W O R S T tippers and always want “first responder” discounts for them all all their annoying friends. I️ know some of you are reading this. Stop that shit.

Someone reported this post for being "rude, vulgar or offensive." LOL.

I was driving a pickup truck last year for a few months someone commented to me about it not being lifted in the HD parking lot... Who the fuck lifts a work truck why do you want to load things into a pickup bed that is neck high!?

People whose 'Work Truck' is an entirely unnecessary fashion accessory completely unrelated to their part time job at the gas station.
