Today was the retirement party for a fellow driver. This driver had seen his fair share of ups and downs. He had prior military experience and is married and has 2 children. The part of the story I have left out, purposely, is his length of service at UPS. This driver chose to resign after 5 years of wearing brown. I've read plenty of threads that posed the question, how long will it take to be full time? Or, I've waited this many years and am not full time yet, why? Well this driver was full time and at top pay. My question here is why? Why would you work for 5 hard years and then just up and quit? He said he was moving to another state but as of yet didn't have anything lined up as far as work. Again, I ask why? So for all you guys out there that are wondering when you'll go full time, are you really ready for this? These are the questions you need to ask yourself, before you waste 5 years of your life. Are you really ready for this???
