Season helper - anyone had problems with their driver?

Discussion in 'UPS Discussions' started by Jonathan Carlson, Dec 18, 2015.

  1. I've been out 3 days in a row, and 2 of those days were fine, but today the driver had a hair across his butt. Trust me, I understand how tired and over-worked people are. But his behavior was unacceptable. I am wondering how others are feeling.

    I think he means the driver has a wild hair up his butt.

    I haven't had any problems with any of the drivers to date. I have worked with six so far. Although the driver I am with did have a bad day on the first week shortly after I started working with him. That has since passed though.

    Might be five for me. I might be working Sunday. For some reason this center is looking to use helpers this Sunday.

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

    A little more in depth?

    Did he maybe just expect you to get off yours and do some work?

    Sometimes drivers get aggravated because they are forced to have a helper when they know they could get more done without one even if she is a former glamour girl.

    So you screwed over your driver two days in a row, which was fine, but then screwed him over a 3rd day in a row, and are stumped on figuring out why he's :censored2:?

    Well, jee, I don't have a clue. Sounds completely irrational to me!

    Drivers are human and do have bad days.

    I had to let my helper go yesterday. I was having a bad day and the culmination of incidents with this person had me reach my breaking point. He had called in one day and told me had to leave early on three other days. Yesterday he kept asking when we would get done and how he would get back to his car. Keep in mind that these questions began shortly after I picked him up.

    The helper that I had for the one day that my previous one did not work was amazing. I would love to keep her for the rest of Peak but she was trained by and primarily assists another driver and it wouldn't be fair to him for me to "borrow" her.

    I will have the center manager's daughter, who is home from college, for the last 4 days. Should be interesting.

    I really don't understand why it's so hard for people to be a decent helper. Show up on time, appear eager and ready to work quickly. Follow driver instructions and keep chatting to a minimum. Done.
