49th Parallel Cafe Review

49th Parallel Coffee in Vancouver, BC claims to be an elegant cafe but when we walked into their 4th avenue location in Kitsilano we heard horrible music. Even the owner Vince Piccolo agreed and gave us 20 dollars. However the manager named BARRETT JONES who is a rock and roll worshiper or just hates when middle-eastern men win began harassing and intimidating the customer.  He even attacked the customers only means of income and posted the customers business on a spam site.  He even slandered and threatened the customer with posting the customers picture at many cafes. This customer is a very good citizen and has helped 1000s of homeless.
Please do not give your business to
49th Parallel Coffee in Vancouver, BC
Call 604 420 4901 and voice your concerns
And Vince Piccolo should be ashamed for allowing an Internet Troll to harass a good-citizen.  I am very close to filing a Notice of Civil Claim and an Injunction

In Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory,[1] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[2] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion

JJBean Cafe Review

I am sure you’ll agree that no one likes songs that say
“take me home with the girls are pretty”
and songs promoting drug use and violence.  Several years ago many were offended at the violent songs that JJ Bean plays. We called management and they said it will not happen again; however we came back to the Davie Street location and they still play violent offense music.  I spoke to the manager who has tattoos and he likes songs that say
“take me home with the girls are pretty”
Please join us in boycotting JJbean café and promote professionalism and decency.

That is just the iceburg. He is friends with another manager who runs a café, which I complained about their violent music. The owner gave me a 20 dollar gift card but the man I complained on started harassing and stocking me. He is friends with Jonnas. Today when I spoke to Jonnas and shared my concern in a professional and polite manner he screamed at me and told me that I was banned. He had no problem taking my money in May and June, but when I made a complaint, he became very hostile. 

Instead of Jonnas today apologizing for the bad experience he became hostile and even mentioned that I have filed a complaint on his friend in the past. Then Jonnas hung up in my face. Jonnas is aware that I have spent hundreds of dollars at his location and tipped close to 100 dollars.

Thank you for reading my JJ Bean Review

UPDATE: JULY 5TH 2014

We wrote to John Neate, who is CEO of JJ Bean and his response was extremely disgraceful and clearly stated that he supports
1) the song: “take me homes where the girls are pretty”
2) supports the unprofessional and mean-spirted actions of Jonnas who hung up in my face and screamed at me saying “you are banned” after I called him to speak to him about my customer complaint
3) supported the refusing a refund of 5 dollars for a lattee I had after the above incident.
4) John Neate replied to a customer complaint stating that he did admit that he happily took my money for several months but does support the above 3 points
5) Not only did John Neate support the above 4 points but after happily taking several hundreds of dollars from me, John Neate asked me to not return to his coffee shops after filing a complaint regarding a song that states “take me homes where the girls are pretty” and you also threatened me
John Neate claims to be a Christian

Dear Friends in Christ. I have been a christian for years and work with the homeless. However recently I saw an article in Light Magazine interviewing John Neate who is the founder of JJ Bean Coffee shops. Here is the article

http://www.lightmagazine.ca/index.php?page=public.viewarticle&nArticlesID=318

However. Recently I filed a complaint because JJbean plays music from singers who have offended many. Such as Guns and Roses. However when I filed a complaint on a song that JJbean played which says: “take me homes where the girls are pretty” by Guns and Roses. John Neate not only supported the song but banned me from being a customer in the future. Not even a pagan would do that. Let alone a Christian. Could be that John Neate just wants the business from Christians?

IF some of you are not aware of Guns and Roses. They have been offending 1000’s in the past. Not only Christians but the general public.

In 2012 they caused outrage over Guns N’ Roses promotional poster depicting woman who has been raped on a sidewalk

Then regarding their album: The graphic used for the ads was actually a toned down version of the cover for their ‘Appetite for Destruction’ album, which showed an unconscious woman with an exposed breast and her underwear pulled down.

So I ask you not to be a lukewarm christian. The bible clearly says that Jesus will spit out any lukewarm Christian. Contact john@jjbeancoffee.com and demand that he apologizes for the songs that he supported and demand he apologize and refund the money of the good citizen he banned when that citizen complained. No christian would do that. I pray you take the side of truth and not popularity.

 

 

John Neate CEO of JJ Bean banned a Middle-Eastern man for a music complaint

JJbean had music on their speakers which was very offensive with lyrics such as “take me home where the girls are pretty”.
We wrote to John Neate, who is CEO of JJ Bean and his response was extremely disgraceful and clearly stated that he supports
1) the song: “take me homes where the girls are pretty”
2) supports the unprofessional and mean-spirited actions of a manager called Jonnas who hung up in a Middle-Eastern man’s face and screamed at me saying “you are banned” after the Middle-Eastern man called him to speak to him about a serious customer complaint
3)  refused to offer a refund of 5 dollars for a latte that the Middle-Eastern Man paid
In conclusion. John Neate of JJ BEAN did admit that he happily took the money from a Middle-Eastern customer for several months. John Neate happily taking several hundreds of dollars from the customer.
What is MOST SHOCKING is that John Neate asked the Middle-Eastern Man to never return to his coffee shops just because the middle-eastern man filed a complaint regarding an offensive song that states “take me homes where the girls are pretty” and then  threatened me
The Middle-Eastern man is Christian and for years has worked with the homeless, so when we saw John Neate on youtube who was being interviewed as a “Christian” we were shocked
Watch John Neates here claim he is a loving citizen.  What about the middle-eastern you distressed and threatened?

However when a Middle-Eastern man filed a complaint on a song that JJbean played which says: “take me homes where the girls are pretty” by Guns and Roses. John Neate not only supported the song but banned the Middle-Eastern Man from being a customer in the future. Not even a pagan would do that. Let alone a Christian. Could be that John Neate just wants the business from Christians?
