    Competition b/t a couple capitalist pig companies, nothing new. Fed Ex is so desperate they'll sling whatever mud they can find. It is pretty rude though. Thanks for calling attention to it, and welcome here.

    Holy crap people! That's been around for over a year now. Been on several threads here too. Welcome to the party, though. Fair is fair, though. UPS and the Teamsters have done everything in their power to disrupt Fedex workings.

    I still haven't seen any FedEx planes land in my neighborhood to deliver packages. Still only see the TRUCKS!

    Come on if you work for UPS you should be used to decisions that were made with no logic or reason

    over a year ago, the center manager pulled all the hourlies together and "encouraged" them to write letters to their Senators against FedEx on that issue, on the clock right before the sort started

    And how much in hourly pay did UPS waste on that?

    bbsam just had a FedEx 777 land on his street, then the pilots jumped-out and delivered his package, and then they took off straight up into the sky for their next delivery, and then the men in the white coats with a real big net came and put bbsam into a white and red van with flashing lights and they took him away to the big building in top of the hill where the crazy people are and then they gave him lots of pills and a nice white jacket with really long sleeves that tie in the back. And then... In other words, FEDEX IS NOT AN EFFING AIRLINE!! We deliver our pkgs from trucks , just like UPS. Thank you.

    It's 12:35am on a Sunday morning. Nobody is delivering anything from any vehicle.

    Jayman, welcome aboard-- a fun place to vent and see what goes
    on around the country. It's true you can't make this stuff up.

    The bottom line is very easy to understand. Airlines move product from airport to airport. Fedex and UPS move products from door to door. It does not matter what type of vehicle is used to deliver. We keep going back to the vehicle of delivery, rather than the start and finish. I do not understand why we do not challange congress with this idea.

    Congress is challenged with it. They simply don't want to do anything with it.

    I can't understand why our friends the Democrats didn't stand up for us when they had control of Congress.

    They probably were confused.

    I'm sure MFE can clue you in. Although Union concerns seem a bit far to the left for you, no?

    Because a few of them are also owned by Mr.Smith. The fact that most of them have atrophied testicles probably didn't help either.
