Sometimes people who file 311 complaints get frustrated when their complaints aren't handled quickly. So they'll complain again, but this time reference other neighborhoods they think is getting better treatment (in South Boston, people sometimes bring up other parts of South Boston). Some examples:
East Boston parking complaint: "Car with out-of-state plates has been parked here for over two days. This block is 2 hour parking. Please enforce parking rules and ticket. I bet if this was Beacon Hill you'd be here in 5 minutes."
Roxbury sidewalk complaint: "Sidewalks are not handicapped accessible. If someone was blind they would be able to distinguish the street from the side wall. Please come back and redo the streets. If this was a White neighborhood this would have been resolved a long time ago. We have been waiting 9 years!!!"
Dorchester playground complaint: "Broken park equipment missing pieces. Please repair. We all know this would be less likely if this were a wealthy white neighborhood."
Charlestown port-a-potty complaint: "Good Morning! I sent this same issue 9 days ago, the response was sent to DPW to remove the toilet. Guess what? It's still there AND continues to be serviced by United Rentals!! Obviously, you, the City are being charged for it, yet all the Liberals want to cut the police budget and Defund the Police, which is outrageous, while you pay for something not needed or used!! Comical!! Again, if this were on the sidewalk anywhere else, Especially on Butler St it would have been removed back in April. It's now September!"
Another East Boston parking complaint: "Two out-of-state cars have been sitting here for over a day. This block is 2 hour parking only. Please enforce parking rules. If this was Beacon Hill I'm sure someone with BTD would be here in 5 minutes. Thank you."
Charlestown trash complaint: "Trash all over the islands at Sullivan square this has been reported for At least the last 6 months it is falling on deaf ears I feel if this was any other part of the city it would have been done already unacceptable"
South Boston parking complaint: "This car has been here for over a month, no permit sticker, expired registration, but yet it still here. This is crazy .If this was parked anywhere else in Southie it would have been TOWED BY NOW. CALLED 311. 4 TIMES TO REPORT, 8 TIMES ON THIS APP. AND ITS STILL HERE. WHY????"
East Boston trash complaint: "The trash has been sitting here for almost a week. This is the second report I've seen. If this was Beacon Hill it would've been picked up in 5 minutes. Please pick-up. Thanks."
East Boston parking complaint: "There is a Ryder rental truck that's refrigerator unit has been running since 9am. Despite residents complaining to the business owner and police nothing has been done. Let's be clear...if this was Beacon Hill and NOT East Boston that this truck would have been fined and towed in 10 minutes. The fact that residents have to listen to this for 9 hours is a disgrace."
Dorchester noise complaint: "No answer on the "Party Line" and a Calling C-11 tells me this is a low priority. I guess you can rent out your "church" as a practice space now and the whole neighborhood can just go to hell with no help. I bet if this was on beacon hill hey would "find the next available car" quick right??? I guess when you live in Dot they don't give a fuckign shit."
South Boston pothole complaint: "It's unfortunate that broken streets are not repaired in this part of town. If this was on L St, it would be fixed. Can you please repair this pothole on Crowley Rogers way? It's been here for months and residents have placed bricks in it themselves."
East Boston bike-chain complaint: "This hazardous bike frame is still chained to the sign and causing a hazard for pedestrians trying to walk by it. Maybe if this was the North End -Charlestown or Southie the case would not only be closed but this hazard would be gone."
