Scumbag business

D & J Roofing
CT Lic. #616385
(203) 506-5731

They went onto private property, opened my mailbox and put their flyer in without mailing it.
Mailable matter not bearing postage found in or on private mail receptacles represents a revenue deficiency to the Postal Service and is a violation of federal law. Title 18 United States Code, section 1725, provides for a fine of not more than $300 per piece for these violations. All employees must uniformly enforce the procedures detailed in the Domestic Mail Manual, section P011.2.0. The failure to enforce these procedures uniformly may jeopardize the criminal prosecution of repeated violators.

If they can't even advertise without breaking the law, I wouldn't want them working on my roof.

Agro River Parking: service with a snarl

I pulled into the lot of the convenience store & office plaza on River Street in Milford. I know there's a back part where people pay to park for the train station, but I was in the front near the businesses. The guy from Agro River Parking comes over and tells me it's $7 to park or I get towed.

That's fine if I were parking all day, but $7 for 10 minutes is not reasonable. After he explained it the first time and I was already going back to my car, he kept repeating himself. What a dick. I got the point the first time. Seven bucks to park.

I wonder if Mr. King-of-the-Lot hassles everyone who tries to park there, or just the ones who get near his outpost.

Hotel Owners and Sheriff Warn of Disturbing New Trend

VESTAL, New York - The Broome County Sheriff's office and a local association of Hotel Owners are working together to combat a new trend in vandalism. "Raging"--a trend among young concert-goers who follow jam bands--has gotten out of control and is threatening the livelihood of hotel owners across the country. The Binghamton Lodging Association and the Broome County Sheriff's office have started a joint initiative to combat the hazard.

"Today marks a new day in commercial lodging security. No longer will hard-working operators be threatened and shut down by rowdy customers," said Deputy Sheriff Bill Wickman.

Vijay Balasubramanian has owned the Motel 6 on Old Route 17 for eight years. He has come to dread the times when touring bands pass through the area. He paused from buffing the floor in his lobby to say, "When I first come to America, they told me to watch out for the rock bands. There is never a problem with the bands, except when Dave Matthews parked his tour bus in my lot and emptied his toilet tank in the storm drain. It is the young customers who are trouble. All night they are raging and hanging off the balcony like a train in India."

Hotel operators are now collecting a "damage deposit" in advance, a practice which has upset some concert-goers. Chad Willis IV, who prefers to be called "The Rev," complained bitterly about the new practice: "They be profilin' us. I mean, can't we all just unzz out together?"

But hoteliers like Balasubramanian are unsympathetic. "I have been lucky, but my cousin Venkat had big problems. These ragers drove a Chevy Caprice into his lobby. Every time there is a concert, one kid tries to pay for his room in molly. This is not a bazaar, it is a legitimate business."
