Environmental Contradictions

Hoboken Environmental Services irony puzzles residents

Hoboken411 reader Andreas snapped a brief video yesterday and had this to say:

“A dept. of ENVIRONMENTAL SVCS. truck with the engine left running while sitting there for at least 5 mins. I turned off the camera just before the driver began cursing at me, illustrating that he obviously knew what he did was wrong. Rather than show contrition he opted for showing his gavone NJ attitude. Is everyone from NJ a complete piece of s**t or am I just lucky to meet them all?

The best is he thought I was filming this because he was clearly parked illegally. I don’t mind that if it’s for the course of work. I get pissed when the cops use the illegal spots for their own personal spaces when they go to lunch and dinner around town but this was different. He didn’t even grasp the irony of leaving the engine running unnecessarily while driving a truck from the DEPT OF ENVIRONMENTAL SVCS!!!!! Parked in front of a brand new blue recycling bin! Holy s**t – this guy needs to win the ironic moron of the week prize. Like a fireman playing with matches while pumping gas. Incredible.”

(Hoboken411 “re-mixed” his brief video into something a bit more musically entertaining).

It’s the Department of Environmental Services, not the department of Environmentalists. They change the trash bags and stuff.
