    cosmo1 Just another internet hooligan.

    It's a little known fact outside of our business, but a case of paper is the heaviest object known to man.

    And here we see the rare Double Strapped Reamopaper in its natural habitat. Caught on film for the first time these creatures are known for their reproductive traits, much like seahorses, only require a single animal. You can tell when they have just birthed by the tell tale signs of a yellow umbilical cord. These creatures also prefer to travel in packs of three or more in bi-weekly migration to human habitations in order to serve out thier remaining days as domesticated stock.

    Why is it we deliver all the heavy boxes of paper when some of them have their own delivery guys but they only deliver toner cartridges????

    On one of my old routes I had a customer that would get 10 cases very two weeks, 2nd floor, no elevator, ordered off the internet from some cheap paper company. I finally convinced them to buy it from local staples store and they delivered. Every time I saw the staples guy there I would say man that really sucks doesn't it,LOL.

    One of these companies finally wised up and started shrink wrapping their boxes. Those plastic bands are a joke.

    I once carried two boxes of legal size copy paper to an upstairs office for a customer. I never did that again.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Scratch is old school, which means he takes care of the customer, whether that customer is "hot" or not.

    All of the above, plus it probably caused hernia #3. Legal size copy paper is 60 lbs. a box, dumb move to try to avoid making a double trip.

    That's because it was a new guy with commen sense who was shortly fired for his double strapping
