    "Be careful, that box is marked "FRAGILE""

    or

    "Wait, re-stack that - the "This End Up" arrows are pointed the wrong way"

    Ironically, our loaders heard both of those last night......but it was because a 5lb $500 insured package got crushed the night before by three 30 pounders that were stacked on it.

    Do you have to be told a pkg is marked fragile? Do the directional arrows confuse you?

    lol. The sad part is they actually do have to tell new hires that info. Wait, maybe the sad part is he forget already.

    I always thought that " fragile " was German for dropkick.

    i usually toss the packages that have the fragile sticker on them cause they annoy me sometimes lol j/k, but it doesn't make sense that a 50lbs package has fragile stickers on it or does it?

    Was it the 24th? Or just a normal hard day during peak? I think a center manager doing this would motivate a lot of the veteran preload workers. Maybe not some of the newer people, they don't always know or care what a center manager is.

    I always assumed fragile was a French word that translated to "Kick the Living **** out of this box"

    Or how about the boxes that have arrows all over with "This Side Up", and the UPS label is on the bottom?

    lol.... If only rocket man were still here.....

    I know you disliked him and I understand why. But admit it Upstate, you found some of his comments funny. Him calling you his hero was funny the first 3 times he did it.

    I saw him last week--he handed me my coffee and donuts at the Dunkin Donuts drive thru. And, yes, he couldn't get that right either.

    :happy-very: I did feel bad for him after he told us his surgery story in the chat though. That changed my understanding of who he was slightly. I figured he was just a troll or someone's gimmick trying to spice things up. The chat demonstrated to me that he really was a driver, a driver that was not happy with many people/things in life.
