    I drive at the speed limits, 65 in a 65, 55 in a 55, etc. I've passed many "superior" UPS drivers driving 55 in a 65mph zone and they are driving in the middle lane. Is that SAFE?
    Bad enough I have to deal with the idiots in the 4 wheelers doing that!
    Also many times I've passed that "superior" driver he's talking on his cell phone!

    I don't think UPS parcel, (ground/home/express is fedex), is superior, we all drive trucks and have to put up with the same bs, traffic, weather, etc.

    yes the easy answer is yes they are more important superior is up to debate, its the UPS bread and butter they put in the sales leads, they interact with the customer if it werent for their hard work UPS wouldnt be the company it is today

    Shouldn't it be...Uh Oh Kingpin, as in Uh Oh, here he comes again? Just curious. As far as superior, you are what you are. Why do I need to start grading you on your performance/work ethic. Are you lacking in affirmation from your supes, or even worse, from home? I say that you should just do your job the best that you can and don't worry about what people, other than your supes, think. JMHO

    I don`t know about the superior part but the judging factor I use is either I trust a guy enough to turn my back on them or I don`t.

    Pkg Drivers are not superior. Freight drivers are the red-headed step-child of UPS though.

    I'm not going to argue importance or superiority. But I will say this:

    This job starts and ends with the delivery driver. They pickup the volume and they deliver the volume. They deal with the customer on both ends. Without them, there is no need for feeder drivers, p/t loaders or sups of any kind.

    That being said.......there are good ones and bad ones. And I include all the catagories listed above in that statement. And, as links in a chain, they are all important in successfully pulling the weight of our business.

We all know that on the top of the food chain sits the almighty feeder driver!!! thats right, the guy who knows all the answers, the one who has filed more grievs than their are stops in your pkg car.. thats right the chosen one... the feeder driver who brings in allllllll those pkges safely everyday,the guy who brings in all the late air....the guys who start all the rumors...and the guy who is first in line on free donut days and grabs 4 burgers on the United Way cookouts...

    Boy I hate to say it but.... Neither group would shine as they do without the mechanics.:raspberry: Most either hate us or like us, but it all boils down to neither would be able to do their respective jobs without us.:happy-very: Those 20 yr old cars or million mile tractors don't fix themselves.

    I'll probably take a lot of heat for this but I only mean it in good humor.:happy-very:

    I believe we all are part of a larger entity, even the cleaner contribute to the success of UPS.

    Who cares ? At the end of the day, it's all about getting home safe. In your case may I suggest superman tee-shirts to wear under your uniform shirt.:wink2:
