    UPSERS.com - in the search engine (upper right hand corner) - type SOCKS. This will bring you to Cintas web site

    I still have a bunch of the 20 yr old original "gold striper" socks that we had when we first started issuing shorts. I also have some with the old box-and-string logo, they have been washed so many times that they are gray instead of brown. The soles wore out years ago, so I just cut the bottoms out and I wear white socks underneath them.

    I am just too damn cheap to pay $$ for new ones.

    Would you have to put tags on them like you do sanitized used mattresses?

    We just had a guy go around taking socks orders from everyone in the center. It's the shipping charge that kills you!

    This way, everyone saves a bit of money.

    We have a sock buyer also, Saves a lot of money on shipping. It's $7.00 if you buy 1 pair or 100 so if alot of drivers go in on the deal, the shipping is minimal and we save

    Wal- Mart sells brown socks that are perfect for us. Scrunch them down a little and you dont have to worry about the logo. I got a few guys in my building doing it and we are not having any problems.

    I'm pretty sure $25 for 6 pair is not going to bankrupt anyone working at UPS.

    It floors me how tight some of our drivers are. These guys are on the road all day and don't have 5 bucks in their wallets. They bring a doggy bag when we have bakery though.

    Whats your next post going to say, I shipped the socks through FedEx?

    Your right I could afford the $25 bucks, but its just the point. I have tried to order clothes through UPS and all I hear is " I cant do it this month cause we are already over our budget for clothes." I just turned in 2 pairs of shorts last month, and was told it might be not till june when they can get me new ones. ***!!! Do they want us wearing worn out stuff with holes in them. We have guys still wearing shirts with the old logos, cause they cant get new ones.

    No but maybe I would have a better chance getting new uniforms through FED-EX.
