    FDX has sued UPS as the commercial about "most dependable" was found to be incorrect. UPS has pulled the ad to end the lawsuit.

    Wasn't Norman Black the one who said, during the strike, "They weren't anyone until we hired them; now they think they are somebody."?

    Now that was a funny video. We used to have Randy Brown in my Center. He is now the president of Local 728.

    The part I thought was really funny was when Sal was walking out, there was a line of wimpy tie choked suits with their arms crossed watching him leave. LOL I bet Sal was askeerd

    That was outstanding!!! Can I hire Sal to walk-in to FedEx HQ and expose them for the little craven weasels that they are? Say what you want about Micheal Moore...he gets the job done. By the way, your prissy little "suits" look just like our suits...like they've never gotten their hands dirty or broken a sweat in their lives. I think your head of PR was about to fill his pants.

    Wasn't that Adolf Hitler Jr in the vest as Sal walks into HQ?

    Gotta love the way the suits get when the camera's show up, unexpectedly. Apparently, they all developed a case of sphincterpuckeritis.

    Is Sal Barney Franks brother. He sort of looks and talks like him.
