Mar. 9th, 2002 @ 05:22 pm I Hate NJ
Current Mood: annoyedannoyed
And not for any petty or trivial reason either. I truely hate New Jersey.

I appologize to anyone who might be saying "Hey, wait a minute. Give us a chance!"

I will admit, contrary to popular belief, NJ has some nice areas. Farmland, woodland and such. But that barely makes up for the reasons I have for hating NJ.

For the record, any state whose idea is to have all left hand turns made by jug handles (that's where you make a right in order to make a left) should be, in my humble opinion, rebuilt from the ground up. Granted, I'm spoilt. I come from Texas. We have more than enough room for everything, without crowding anyone else. You won't find many truely tall buildings in Texas because we have the room to build lots of small ones. Nothing compares to room.

Next on my list of complaints is road signs. There are so few road signs pointing you to the major landmarks,to include Interstate Highways, no I mean especially Interstate Highways. Too many times I've driven past the ramp to a highway, turned around and come across the only sign for the highway in blocks. On top of that, the sign is usually a tiny circle with writing you can only read from five feet away. Is NJ trying to hide something (like all of the exits from their state)? If your state is so wonderful, why keep people from leaving? Why not instead make it so they want to come back. I've lost count of the number of times one small wrong turn has become an hour of searching for the highway because there are few if any signs to direct you. Any state that is designed solely for residents shouldn't be surprised when tourists don't like it there.

Thirdly, let's face it. All of the steriotypes are pretty much true. All along the highway and seacoast, NJ is the trash capital of the world. Chemical plants are everywhere (and that's saying something for a state that is a sliver of land along the sea). And any state where you can tell the story "No matter how beautiful the waves are, if there is a chemical spill alert, don't go surfing" is somewhere to be avoided (of course the guy who told that story was pretty much to be avoided as well).

My problem is I have to drive through that wretched state in order to get to Maryland. And as my company is in MD and on a restricted budget lately, I've been driving through NJ alot.

For those of you who feel I'm being unfair, just be thankful I waited a week to write this. It could have been filled with nothing but I HATE NJ written 1000 times!

I was also born and raised in Nj i hate it here so much


High Taxes
High cost of living a lot of people are staying home with their parents
High Car insurance
A lot of Crime its a shame that you can't go on certain streets because of crime.
Cops yes they are too busy pulling people over writing tickets. Instead of fighting crime
The highway safety thing they have so often another excuse to write tickets
safe corridor another way to make more money
The wanna be rednecks here your not from down south
Crappy over crowded Schools old run down schools its a shame that kids go to a school that patches up its patch work. And Every window has a window unit air conditioner
The Mayor is a joke
Housing Developments instead of tearing down the old run down houses lets waste land and build houses that no one is going to buy

I'm in New Jersey right now.

It isn't fun. No one here is "the life of the party." Being from Buffalo means I've spent most of my life covered in snow. You can't talk about "being tougher" when you live in a state that can reach 70 degrees in February. No one likes jug handles. And the NJTP & GSP are a joke.

This state sucks. But for the record - so does Missouri, Ohio (F the Bucks), Louisiana and Florida.

Why New Jersey Is Gay

(Permanent Link)
Who cares if you have 2 miles of arcades. Your wooden Boardwalk is a rickety home for termites or plank for Pirate legs. Russians working an Italian joint charging 15 dollars for 2 slices of thin Pizza is outrageous. Most Shore women are Loose and Incompetent liars. Most Shore men have no morals they will Have sex with any thing having a hole.
Its not Jersey Pride, your just arrogant selfish pricks who thinks your smarter than everyone else.
The Jersey Shore show is exactly how it is for most under 30 and a few stray cougars 40+ who cant keep a man due to the fact they are just whores. Don't let anyone fool you from new jersey on that matter. I enjoy making direct left turns, and jug handles belong on liquid pitchers. If your women is in jersey and gos to Jenk's or the stone pony, she is cheating on you straight up- Don't believe that jersey whore when she says her 5 hot guy friends are just friends and want to share a drink. Your stupid if you believe that.

Id Rather be homeless on the streets of NYC than live good a day in New Jersey.

The beaches voted #1? they have syringes everywhere... go to Florida and then brag about a nice beach. And oh great, you have a bunch or rich people crammed together... most of them get that money illegally. And I know that for a fact. Not to mention, some of the counties in NJ, are the most expensive in the country to live in. So of course those people get paid more... but they stil live in a shit house bc it cost so much.

And I'm so glad they donated to Katrina... what about all of us in Florida who actually took the people of the hurricanes into our homes?

There are no syringes. People just say that to keep dipshits from coming onto their beaches. It's a stupid myth, ahaha.

Well, the only thing I know about NJ beaches is what a First Sergeant told me once. "Dude, no matter how beautiful the waves are in New Jersey, if there is a chemical spill alert, don't go surfin'." Now granted, this said more about him (before surfing those beautiful waves he had a full head of hair and perfect eyesight, after bald and needed glasses) than the waves. However . . .

SCREW F-IN NJ! I moved here from Colorado for a job and that was the worst mistake in my life! The people here SUCK!! Their so fake; they're all talk but when it comes to actually doing the work---forget it--they're nowhere to be found. They're so lazy, they can't even pump their own gas! What the hell is that all about? I don't want Mohammud teaching my 38K truck; he's probably got bombs strapped around him as we speak.

And would it kill you people to actually take some driving lessons? Holy crap, it snows a half inch and you think the world has come to an end---well, *ussies, if you would have bought a real car that could get you though the snow instead of the little foreign crapper that has 2wd and is only good for 2 weeks out of the year, maybe you wouldn't have to drive like a panzy @ss! but you were too busy looking for the economical car (cheap cheap cheap) instead of the practical car that could save your life. You know, back home, you would get pulled over for driving too slow and we would run you off the road; just like we do to the Californians.

For any of you true Westerns that seem to be stuck out here, like me, for right now--I applaud you. It takes all our strength and resistant not to want to mengle one of these Easterns everyday and believe me, we would be doing the world a favor.

Oh, and the beaches---SUCK! I can't believe you charge people for the beaches. That's like if we charged people to go to the Rockies; if you're charging me 20 bucks to go to the beach then I should charge you a trillon dollars just for looking at the Rockies.

you my friend need help. i will tell you i've lived in jersey my whole life, and i also admit it isn't the best. but new jersey people have PRIDE deep pride. i haven't met one person who doesn't have the pride. we do have it hard here, YES! it smells. that is almost all new yorks fault, have you been there? YUCK. it is dirty disgusting full of homeless lazy idiots. ive been to south carolina and florida and its nice. but the people there have no respect for themselves. i didnt meet any teen age pregnancies in jersey, at all. i went to south carolina and met around 16 in one month. so i now know of 16 TEENAGE PREGNANCIES IN MY LIFE. that's a bit trashy huh ?. everyone in jersey has that attitude. its confidence. i live in hudson county, north bergen to be exact, and there are some freakin rude ass people. but i go a few towns away and meet kind curious people who make me wonder, is this still jersey? so don't pull the whole "EVERYONE IN JERSEY IS RUDE" because, they're not. i think the main reason for peoples rudeness is the different races. you go down south , and most people are white or mixed within towns and cities. here, normally you get counties and towns full of ONE race. the beaches..are not nice xD. but what do you expect from a northern freakin state? geez. - you cant get mad at us for not pumping our own gas. a lot of people wouldn't mind. but its ILLEGAL. we have people to pump our gas so we can keep it under control, and its more people out of jobs so. suck it >_>. anyway, i love jersey, don't hate.

Y'all love to hate NJ

(Permanent Link)
Guess what, i can honestly sit here and admit that NJ is f'd up, and I was born and raised here. Ironically, that's what makes NJ and its residents some of the most thorough group of people coming out of the 50 states. All the sh*t you have to go through just to survive here is what makes us so much tougher and stronger, emotionally and mentally, than the rest of you pansy asses and your weak ass home states!!! Admit it, you may hate our state but if you know anyone from NJ living in any of your other states, I bet you he/she is the "life of the party", y'know, keeps things intersesting. NJ is never boring, so it's very rare to come across a boring New Jerseyan. Not to mention we've got it so hard, and become so used to it, that living anywhere else is cake. It's like you can't help looking at people from other states as pansy ass weaklings. And whats with this whole "southern hospitality" thing. Honestly, it makes me wanna hurl. That sh*t is soooo annoying. If you don't know me ,there is no reason to speak. Keep it moving!!! I think a lot of this crap is posted out of pure jealousy. I mean how many TV shows and movies are based on living in YOUR home state. Unless its Cali, or NYC I would say slim to nill. Do you know why? Most likely because your home state and the people that live in it are booooooring!!!! Not to mention we have some of best Italian and Hispanic cooking in the US. I went to Miami and I swear I had the worst slice of pizza I've ever tasted. Y'all don't even know what a real Philly cheesesteak tastes like. And Fashion? Most of these other states have no idea what the meaning of fashion is. I mean if you think our state troopers are bad wait until you get arrested by the fashion police. You gotta luv the NYC/Philly mixed NJ style of dress. NJ men are macho and the women feminine. We can go to any other state and have you people damn near throwing sex at us, just because of our Jersey accent. You gotta luv that Jersey swagger. Don't hate......Congratulate!!! And believe me if you think NJ is bad, wait until you go to NYC!!! It's NJ to the 10th power!

First of all there isnt anything wrong with someone pumping my gas, get over it. If all of you who dont live in New Jersey lived in paradise WE WOULD ALL BE THERE! Every state has problems that is a fact! Maybe everyone should look at the state rankings on the Morgan Quitno Press website. This is a company out of Kansas City who ranks all states on a number of issues. In 2006 N.J. was the 8th most livable state. We also had the countrys safest city (Bricktownship). We where also in the top 10 in being a healthy state. Money magazine ranked Moorestown N.J. as the best town in the country to live in while Chatam N.J. and Princeton N.J. also came in the top 15. Hackettstown N.J. was number 72. Other studies showed we in N.J. save more money than anyone else in the country, and yet another study showed our emergency room care to be number 1 in many areas. Again if your state was so great we would all be there. I have done enough traveling around the country to see some strange things in other state also!

ok first of all, im from jersey, for all of you people from other states who think we are new york wannabees, we are not, who wants to be a new yorker, they are a disgrace to italians, nj has the real italians, all you new yorkers think your all that, no, dont get me wrong, i love the city, but living there would be hell.

next, for those of you who think we are jerks, hell, we are, because all of you seem to hate us and the state, the state is amazing, taylor ham...heaven, all the diners is amazing, down the shore is the best, boardwalk kills cali's little fake boardwalks, the people actually have a real grip on life, the rest of you are all hot stuff till you come here, everyone i ever met from another state that moved here, especially florida, are the worlds biggest assholes, this one guy has the biggest mouth and no one likes him, and the other is the same but got beaten up 3 times in 2 months, then he moved away,

again, for those of you that hate us because we actually dont have to get out of our car to pump gas, and that we drive fast, we, unlike you southeners and up tight people, we have things to do, we try to get the most out of life, we are a much more fun and active type of people, we always have fun, everyone from jersey is more fun than you will all ever be

for all of you that think cali is amazing, it's not!, my cousin lives there, very boring character, even his friends, unless you are obsessed with the beach, you will not like cali, and its not like what you see on laguna beach or any other show

and if you hate us so much, dont come here, we dont like you either, jersey is by far the most fun state, the south is all deserted and full of farms, nyc is too crowded, even for us in jersey, you cali people are just disgraces, and the midwest is all just some weird people, oh and by the way sorry that we actually have to work hard to even live in a shack, when we move out of state, we can get a mansion from a normal sized house, that proves you all actually dont have to work hard

new jersey is the best, come here and actually stay here a while, not judging it by one visit

NEW JERSEY IS A DRAIN ON AMERICA!

(Permanent Link)
N.J. is a cost, and not a contributor. The people are as unauthentic as the goods sold on Canal street, and as black-hearted and mean spirited as any hateful religious hypocrite. Most N.Jersyeans can't live anywhere else, because their pointed out as ungrateful, spiteful, mentally unbalanced, wicked, and definitely not to be trusted. Gutter greedy, ugly, fat, and over priced, I'm glad that the word is spreading to cut N.J. out of the union altogether. A treacherous bunch, with the laziest piece of shit Police Department, a lot of what really goes on with these weak trash thieving criminals disguised as "business men" are going to break the hearts and spirits of America, when all this sewage back slides BACK into Trenton. A backwards, blackballing State with not an ounce of integrity, they do so little, and then praised for it, should definitely be over. Please Jesus expose how N.J. pimps you and God, cheats on the lottery, and is gasping for breath when it comes to keeping up the facade of being "hard working". It's THE PEOPLE and the gangrene culture of N.J. that makes this place a waste of space in America, and there is someone out there with the actual balls, that will ruin N.J. cover. DON'T SHOP HERE, DON'T COME HERE, and whatever you do, EXPOSE N.J. running like rats to other states and bankrupting them. STOP N.J. FOR GOOD!

Jersey does suck but the rest of America sucks more.

(Permanent Link)
Sure Jersey is over populated, loud, smelly and expensive but everything else is just hearsay. I was born and raised in Jersey and where I grew up you were ITALIAN not a Guido. That shit would NEVER FLY in ANY REAL ITALIAN FAMILY, I have never even known a Guido from Jersey. From Queens, Brooklyn n the Bronx sure but not from Jersey. The whole Guido thing is very much a New York mess not a Jersey mess.
We cant make left turns here cuz there are simply TOO MANY PEOPLE. Do you fools have an idea how long it would take to make a left turn in Jersey? Thank the people who came up with the jug handles if you like being able to get where your going.
I drive the NJTP everyday and the bad drivers are from PA, NY, MARYLAND and other random shit hole states that suck at life. Jersey actually was rated as having some of the best drivers in the country. We also have one of the lowest adult obesity populations in the country so all you middle Americans who like to talk shit need to shut up. Middle America and the South are DISGUSTINGLY OBESE. Not to mention, trashy. Yeah I said it.
If a place is cheap to live then the quality of life will be cheap too. In Jersey you pay for convenience, that all there is to it. You wanna live cheap then move to North Carolina with all teenage moms and poverty. Move to Florida with all the pill heads and white trash.
I dont like the beaches in Jersey but thats cuz I travel and know a nice beach when I see on. There are not too many nice beaches on the East Coast of this country. But I know most people don't dare to leave the East Coast or this country so I dont expect you to know the beauty you are missing.
Sure the people suck but it was not always like this here. People from Jersey used to be really nice and down to earth but as the population has soared and as the illegal immigrant population goes thru the roof we have become restless and irritable. Dont forget we live in one of the most corrupt states in the country, so after a while the people get sick of all the nonsense.
If you all hate it here so much then don't move here. Take a job somewhere else. Don't judge this state by the NJTP or the Parkway. I bet you fools don't even know about towns like Short Hills, Bernardsville, Far Hills, Mendham, Red Bank, Colts Neck, Alpine just to name a few.
I hate Jersey simply because I am over it, because too many transplants have come here with their bad driving and slow ways. But its all good cuz I have been living a very expensive lifestyle for 30 years which means I will be able to afford to and have the balls to be able to make a living in Hawaii. NJ will set you up to be a hustler and a go getter. No one from America can move to Hawaii and make it unless your moving from NYC/NJ or your just plain rich.
I thank NJ for making me tough but this states glory days are long gone. We don't need anymore haters here so please feel free to move.

New Jersey is awesome. We have one of the best school systems in united states. It is awesome even thought I am not a fan of southern nj because of the beaches. That show jersey shore is such a lie. None of them was from nj and not even in nj. New Jersey also has a lot better school systems than New York. With the driving well you get use to it. I mean you have to be aggressive. Also it is a great place to visit because it had a very big part in history with George washington. Also I don't leave anywhere near chemical plant. Go Northern NJ. Also stop with the curse word.

Boring state = NJ

(Permanent Link)
I wasn't born in NJ, but i lived here half my life. I don't drive yet, but my problem with NJ is the climate. awfully hot summers and no snow in the winter - to reach the nearest snow one must drive at least 2 hours north.........there's nothing to do here, no winter sports, the summers are so hot i stay inside anyway........ and it all looks the same. the same houses, the same suburbs, you just can't tell the difference.
And Trenton....i lived in Trenton for 3 years of my childhood, and my memories of the public school are the most unpleasant... luckily i went to private school later.
Politically,, i don't like it either....the schools system is so idealogically imposing, and unreasonably, ridiculously strict - so many little rules and laws about thing you can and can't do.


in short, it's just a boring state..

with not enough snow.
