Yes, I think its well overdue. A venting thread perhaps. Maybe even a "im half drunk, I dont care, let me speak" No, I dont care about my grammar or spelling. Im giving an effort so you can read it, at least.

Let me explain why I have no tolerance for New York City, or any of its residents.

I personally do not live in New York, I live in PA. I am also not a tourist to this horrible place. I am forced daily to make the 3 - 4 hour drive into the city. I drive a truck into the city, and deliver the roaster pigs to various restaurants (mainly dirty Chinese restaurants).

How my day starts:

I wake up at 2AM (Yes, thats morning), proceed to wake up, drag myself to my car, and drive myself 30 miles one way to a farm. I get the usual "So, this restaraunt is going to have some complaints" (because they rip them off, and generally give them horrible products).

After the usual briefing, I climb into my somewhat functioning truck. They load the truck for me, which is greatly appreciated (it takes time, and making bills is a pain in the ass). As usual, the truck doesnt have the heater running during the 30 degree temp. I see the ABS light is still on and notice they still have not fixed my jake brake. It just makes driving more interesting, I guess.

As I make my way to the PA turnpike. As my truck can barley pull up a hill, im reminded of how much weight (stuff I have to unload by hand), is on the back. Thats alright, I can make time on the straight ways and the downhills. OH WAIT, of course not, they govern the truck at 65MPFH (you figure out what that means).

After entering New Jersey, crossing the bridge, and smelling rake essence of ass, I realize im half way there. Half way there, sounds good, right? Wrong, your forgetting the fact that traffic sucks unless you get there before 4:30AM. After dealing with assholes who can not drive to save their life, and cars who think its cool to drive on the "TRUCKS, BUSSES" side of the highway, you make it into New York. The greatest, most well-deserved city of all cities. After fighting your way on the unmaintained roadways (also known as the dreaded 278, all of the city local streets, etc), you finally make it to your first stop.

Depending on traffic, you might have enough time to take a 20 minute nap before all hell breaks loss. When I say hell, I mean, china men. Arguing with them about rejected products and how you have no control over what is sent on the truck gets old about 10 mins into the morning.

As you move on from stop to stop, dealing with every single asshole NYC has to offer, you finish up. But WAIT, you still have to go from Queens all the way to Manhattan to collect money. Even after all that, you have to make it back to Brooklyn just to get back into Jersey. You see, the company I work for doesnt always provide me with a truck that is allowed to exit the city via the Holland Tunnel.

Its now 3PM, and you move on to the Jersey Turnpike (which sucks around this time). You soon realize that you have another 2 - 3 hours till you are back to point A. The company decides to really **** with you. They think that taking exit 9 on the Jersey Pike, to get on route 1, and fuel up is cheaper. This not only takes more time, but more fuel in stop and go traffic. Kind of defeats the purpose, right? You then get on 95, which has so many accidents and black gentlemen being arrested, it takes forever to get on the PA turnpike.

You reach the PA turnpike. You think your on the home run now. OF COURSE NOT. Philadelphia sucks. They all decide to go home at the same time after work, clogging the turnpike at the extension. Thats alright, you'll get through it, you did it a million times before. Now your about falling asleep at the wheel, when the see the sign for a familiar city. To bad that city is 130 miles away still, and still another 50 miles away from where you need to be.

You make it back to where you started. Ahhh, sweet home city, how good it feels to be back. Its now 6PM, you have completed a 15 hour work shift (on a short day, mind you) But wait, you must clean the back of the truck out for another hour till its spotless. Your boss has left the work place and has gone home (up the road). Of course they are to lazy to come out and meet you to collect bills / money / more complaints. You have to waste your gas money to go to their house and hand over all the items mentioned previously. Its now 7:30, and you still have a half hour car drive ahead of you. Its around 8PM - 9PM till your done showering, feeling like a human being again till you have to pass out again to start all over again.

Yes, I realize its long, but I dont care. Go find another thread if you dont want to read it. Or stab yourself in the chest, I dont care. I took tomorrow off, so I have enough tired, and drunk time to write this, so I did.

So I was wondering, are black people capable feeling love? I mean can their brains comprehend that kind of emotion, or are they not programmed that way.

Nobody has a gun to your head. Instead of spending 30 min writing that post why dont you apply for some other jobs. I see listings for drivers all the time. Do something about your life when it sucks. You put yourself their.

I am from NYC. I love it. The only thing I dislike about it is at times you can "fear" for your life, but thats the same with any major metropolis- you just have to have some level of streetsmarts.
#23
Wow that job really sucks man, really try to get a local job nearby or something your not going to have any type of social life at all with a job like that. I can see why that type of experience could make you hate everything even remotely associated your job but NY is not really that bad of a place man. Good Luck

My suggestion? Quit your job. Learn how to swim. take lifeguarding courses. Become a lifeguard.

Seriously. If you can't be a lifeguard, then try to get some other job that doesn't suck massive elephant penis.

Im drinking Jager, to the guy that asked. Im actually thinking about passing out soon, and enjoy sleeping in till 10AM. I really havent had time to look for a new job. Thats what tomorrow is for.

And about NYC. People are assholes out there. I also dont live in Philly, I live about an hour away from it.

To anyone that said I was whining, etc. I really dont care. I think we are all entitled to a little bitching every now and then.

To emphazie on why NYC sucks:

Rude people
Horribe Drivers / Congested roads
Traffic cops that give tickets like its candy
Terribly designed buildings that you have to sit down with 200LB pieces of meat, sliding down the stairs into a soaked / flooding floor just to deliver the product.

I could seriously go on, but the drinks is making it harder to think / correct my typing.

CHEERS EVERYONE

Thats hilarious because every Chinese restuaurant I go in has pretty much every family member from age 5 and up working in it doing something, most likely getting paid nothing and also most likely hearing things like "you no likey you go back to China then!" and "you don get pay, you get pay food!!!"

damn Chinese and their hypocracy. China is one of the most corrupt nation states on earth and they still don't learn when they escape it and get somewhere free like the States. They should be thanking whichever God they believe in every night for their fortune and luck.
