    I am in biotches. Did my casual period, got the call back, did my 30 days with sup and everything went smooth as butter. I can't wait to become as miserable as you guys ! YAY

    Holy edits ! I guess as some people age they lose their sense of humor. Luckily i still have both my youth and my good sense of humor.

    Covemastah Suspension Ovah !!! Tom is free FU Goodell !!

    Sense of humor isn't measured on age,it's measured by how many stops you have done !! I have done about 500,000 in 15 years of p/car, so I lost it probaly around 2002 and gained it back in 2004 when I went into feeders !!

    Everyone complains but like a few of the guys tell me "I will bitch everyday but where else are you getting paid this well with benefits to take boxes from one place to another?"

    Congrats. Take care of your health, stay focused on safety and remember it is a marathon and not a sprint.

    Remember how you feel right now about getting the job and think back to it on the bad days. After 26 years I still try to appreciate how I felt when they hired me out of the room full of other people applying for the job.

    The only thing that really gets under my skin right now are other drivers who do the wrong thing. Releasing in area's where they shouldn't be and running up the stop counts. The DIAD clearly stats this is not a DR area but they override it. Then i cover their route and my sup asks me what the problem is with my overage.

    You have not truly made it until you have been fired at least once.

    The first thing you need learn is don't worry about what other drivers are doing just do your job....

    cosmo1 Just another internet hooligan.

    LOL! I really thought I was going to one of the few to leave without being fired at least once. Then I had a roll-away, and got to spend my 2 weeks off, getting garden ready and golfing. Oh, well.

    Out of the 23 drivers at my old center I would say at least 18 had been fired at least once (myself included)--------and for less serious reasons than a runaway. There was a few times that all you had to do was look at them funny and you were out the door. I think the only one who really got fired and never got his job back was a feeder driver who got caught porking a ministers wife in a gravel pit one saturday morning on his way back in. I was something he had been doing for a long time. He never fought his firing so who knows if he could have won his case.

    Yes yes do your job or at least try to keep up with UPS's every changing rules and post infractions policies. Remember its a shifting constellation of 10,000 work rules and procedures that over lap and counter each other. So don't get caught in the switches when they tell you to turn left, then right, then straight, all at the same time, then fire for not following instructions when you make a choice.

    After 20 years, I must not have made it yet.
    Hopefully, when I retire, I will not have made it yet.

    You really do have a negative attitude---did something happen to make you this way?
