That’s why I don’t tell people I’m from New Jersey when I travel


A New Jersey woman, whose identity is not yet known to the public, was fined $ 800 for jumping off a tour boat in Maine.

The incident happened last July and allegedly happened when the boat, the M / V Acadian, was docking. She apparently made the jump to a $ 500 bet with her brother.

Apparently she was rescued from the water, whether she was in danger or not, is not clear from the information we have. She could have been fined up to $ 25,000 for her antics, but the judge was pretty gentle with the woman and decided on a fine of $ 800.

Sometimes when you are on vacation and maybe have a few cocktails on a sightseeing boat, jumping off on a hot summer day is a cool thing.

I’ve been in New England for the past two summers. Two years ago I was on a ferry to a small island off Portland, Maine. Last summer we took the ferry from Cape Cod to Martha’s Vineyard. Massachusetts. It never occurred to us to jump off the boat when it docked. I think we’re careful about that.

We are also careful about telling people where we are from because the rest of the country believes the New Jersey people do. And yes, sometimes they do.

There are many examples of “a New Jersey man …” doing something horrific or illegal all over the Internet. The game is really about “a man from Florida …” but if you google a man from jersey or a woman from jersey you will find that we catch up with florida.

We still have a long way to go to catch up to Florida to make the headlines, but it’s a new year and we can dream.
