    And your point is? I consider it my sacred duty as a brown drone to do my part to insure our dear leaders in Atlanta get their bonuses that I won't even complain about excessive hours, dart board dispatching, and impossible time allowances. All hail our fearless Ceo.

    I almost forgot to mention the disgruntled customers that are turning to a UPS employees forum out of desperation because no one is able to help them find their missing packages. They should sit down and shut up and be grateful they are also helping our dear leader's bottom line.

    This is every peak, just a bit worse than the last.

    Hopefully most of us won't run out of punctuation marks, or grammar.

    News flash. Management dosent care about coustomers anymore. Or you. But you allready knew that part. They will call you in office and straight up tell you dont make small talk or chit chat with coustomers. Give them package and leave immediately. This happened to me I was in shock. I was told if they tried to make small talk to say "sorry I was busy" and to leave. Lol. Not joking this actually happened. Was told those seconds talking to coustomers adds up to to much over allow. They are clueless have no idea only reason they ship with ups is the friendly ups driver.

    I'm not speaking for the drivers in outlier centers, but hub sort package volume. Last year's "largest sort ever, peak day" has been outdone several times already in our hub!

    Atlanta called.......they don't care about your problems, or the customers problems. Atlanta only cares about profits. More employees and routes means less profits.

    I'll just give you the same line the helper coordinator gave me...

    "You don't seem to understand that we have goals we need to make and those numbers are most important..."

    I live in the Berkshire have to drive to Springfield to work got bumped out of the Pittsfield building a couple of years back. Even with the Hr drive home I'm home before some of the drivers in my old building get back. They beep on the way past my house if I happen to be outside. Also if I have a delivery I get at the end of the day so I usually get to chat with the driver who delivers it.
