    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    You did the right thing by posting here on Brown Cafe rather than calling your supervisor and reporting the accident.

    Inform the center? Just make an effort to be more careful, many of us have been there.

    If you bent that back bumper in it looks like all the others now. Tell your boss what happened, as long as they don't have to spend any money to fix they will probably let it go.

    If its bad enough to notice I would slam it in forward and then slam it in reverse and hit that MF as hard as you can. You're going to be charged with an accident anyway--may as well make it a good one.

    Call, don't use the diad, if they decide to sweep it under the rug why create a paper trail.

    If there was no damage to the pole just send a message (DIAD) explaining what happened/what was damaged and keep on trucking. They will probably contact you swiftly.

    And everybody wonders why we harp on backing.

    Call your center manager or another on car
