Has UPS done anything right recently?

  1. From Orion to a failed takeover. The amount of money wasted is staggering. Maybe they should look before they leap.

    My paycheck cashes every week. That's as far as my care stretches. Not paid to worry about matters of that nature.

  3. They are working on improving it. It's not a one and done thing.
    Which was failed because we didn't pay off the people who ended up blocking it. Smart business if you ask me.
    Neither of those are leaps. It's basic running a company. Not everything you do is going to be a home run. We're still making healthy profits.

    jumpman23 Oh Yeah

    Never happen dude. Its kinda the same idea if you and i had billions of dollars in the bank, we would probably never have to check our balance in our account because it would be impossible to ever run out of money. Same idea really dude. Wishful thinking though lol.

    Yeah, I know. That's the way I am. I never have to check my balance. HA
  9. If you look at TNT's numbers from when we made an offer to when FedEx made an offer you would see we dodged a bullet.

    That's the crap that happens when one loses sight of where the revenue comes from. That's what happens when top dogs never moved boxes

    Not a big fan of Twin Hill. Everything is a size smaller. And the flys on the pants don't zip down as far as they should. Very hard to.....ahem....get "IT" out.

    Anybody else have issues with their UPS logos peeling off on the Twin Hills?

    A Russian roulette bullet. Why was UPS looking to overpay?

    To be the big dog in Europe. The acquisition of TNT for either company was never about TNT's profitability.
