Written by Pat's Papers | Friday, 18 March 2011 7:51 AM

New Jersey has been the butt of many jokes but this seems extreme. According to the New York Post, a manager for fashion designer Elie Tahari, is suing his bosses for forcing him to work in the Garden State. In the $2 million lawsuit, the 36-year-old fashion executive details his many gripes: “It was the smog. It was depressing driving to Jersey, the traffic was horrendous on Route 4, and they are pretty bad drivers. The stores are kind of cheesy for the most part.” He contends that working in Hackensack and Paramus was so bad that he became depressed, started seeing a psychologist and is now on Zoloft.
