    Yes, how did you find out? My plans are now ruined to buy UPS and eliminate all the management personel that have came from somewhere other than a delivery business or never driven and promote people that actually have driven a package car and have been in the delivery business before! Now it's ruined. BIG MOUTH!!!!

    Ha ha. You guys are too funny. But seriously, my buddy in S. Jersey was told that in January they are calling in all the employees in their office to work. Something about a takeover. Was just curious and asked around our office and they too have heard of something but no one knows what exactly seems to be spreading. Just wondering if anyone knew what it was all about.

    not trying to start a rumor just to prove or disprove its validity. But with it seeming to be spreading in our area want to be sure. Maybe we're planning to take over TNT again or something. IDK.

    I took it that you thought someone would be 'taking over' UPS. The other way around would be OK.

    No I don't think anyone would ever buy us out. We're the big fish in the pond. Maybe with the USPS going broke, we'll take them over. :-)

    Its funny you should mention that as there is a sports bar located a couple of blocks from my building called Fedups. I believe a PC driver owns it.

    Ups buys all kind of companies every year. Nothing would be that big of a deal unless they bought Fed-ex, which will never happen!!!
