    Midsouth as well. Who knows what will happen to the people who work in these districts?? We were told to get with our Manager on Wednesday concerning our options. Won't be a lot of work getting accomplished tomorrow.

    Reducing management in this consolidation?
    Micro-management being honed to a needle point?
    Maybe, we will answer the age old question of how many angels can fit on a pinhead.

    Or How many morons does it take to screw in a light bulb.

    JustTired free at last.......

    We will be cutting our use of light bulbs by 1/3. However, the voltage will be raised to 160 volts to make up the difference. The cost to achieve this voltage will be substantial, but will be a one-time investment. of course, this will mean that they will "burn out" and have to be replaced more frequently. But that cost will be charged to another element of the business and then passed on to the customer.

    We lost our district years ago, our center has been kicked around like redheaded orphans ever since. I had heard we are about to me moved to a different district soon also, but at this point it's still just a rumor.

    Those were the good old days,
    then the environmentalists complained that too much toxic spill was occurring from hot tubs.
    Another old joke hot tub joke from the 80's circulating around the Montrose "district" in Houston.:sick:

    North Jersey too, swallowed up by Metro Jersey. Letter read on Monday and as of Wed still no more info, no one available to answer any questions. same ole same ole for the good of the company, corporate needs to look at the $300.00 lunches, everyone at those lunches can afford to buy their own and oh yea, what about each time a new dm comes in they need to paint the office and put their special expensive touch to it-CORPORATE look at that waste and not my little salary

    Same thing at Midsouth. The letter they read said to talk to your Manager on Wednesday. Well it is Wednesday night...and no one had any information at work today. You know that they know exactly what they are going to do. Why keep us in suspense? You can forget Corporate cutting costs, I really liked the UPSers.com statement that stated that Corporate was downsizing through attrition. I thought they were supposed to be losing jobs... like last year. Until recently you could go to the UPS jobs site and see all kinds of openings for Corporate. I don't know if they filled the openings...but it would not suprise me if they were.
