Useless parking meter trivia

Useless parking meter trivia in Hoboken NJ

Those economy-draining robotic pickpockets are bad in enough in Hoboken. Most visitors stand there and fiddle with the machines (most often putting in too much money). While I find the machines easy enough to use, the average idiot needs all the help they can get. And have you seen those useless “trivia facts” on the parking meters?

When the meter should have only the bare minimum “verbiage” on how to operate it – and absolutely NO clutter, the city decided to squeeze in the MOST useless “trivia” about Hoboken! (probably confusing dopey people that much more).

“Welcome to Hoboken – “The Mile Square City.” The Birthplace of Baseball, the Zipper, the first Steam Powered Ferry and much more!”

I bet the geniuses at City Hall said: “You know what? If we tell those idiot visitors coming to Hoboken that they’re in the birthplace of “The Zipper” – they’ll forget about the parking tickets and boots! Yeah!”

Earth to Hoboken: A happy historical message on a parking meter will NOT change the sentiment among those who you’ve robbed.

Y gad!!! Hoboken used to be the most ethnically diverse community per square mile in the World. After Zimmer and her cronyism and discrimination this reputation that lived for over a century has turned to the extreme of a exceedingly narrow demographic that gets supported through Zoning.
