    Your user name is so ironic right now, I almost feel like this moment was scripted.

    Shouldn't you all be congratulating this guy? According to many posts I have read on this forum, by deciding to never work for this company again, he has made the right choice for his life.

    He hasn't earned the right to hate UPS after half a day. Only after I respect the fact that a person can do the job, can I respect the fact that they want to quit.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    He chose to quit out of sheer laziness. I will not commend him for that. Quit because u want more family time or something along those lines or just because u don't like it is one thing. Quit two hours into the job because u had a few heavy loads and your lazy no sympathy here.

    Ok, I agree with the two posts above.

    My driver drops me off at an eight story office building with a dolly loaded to capacity and a diad.

    Not sure what the problem is delivering 10 boxes to a business/residence.

    I gotta question, did the driver take you back to the meet point when you decided to quit????

    At that point you hand him cab fare and thank him for all of his hard work.

    We have a saying around our house when our kids want to quit an activity they have joined. "We are not quitters, we are complainers"

    The second day is ALWAYS the hardest. If you don't have a handful of Advil in your pocket, the day will be even longer.

    SAD SAD SAD....... How old are you??? I'm on my second week, it gets easier, HONEST !! First week was hell for my body, now I'm fine.
    Sure after 7 to 9 hours and I'm home, you can't get me to walk the dog. But tomorrow after stretching I'm ready. My driver is 20 years younger than me,
    we goad each other.....becoming fun.
    You quit now and you'll never be allowed to work for UPS world for thought
