    Good. Thieves should be fired.

    This morning I got in my P7 and found an old, beat up cellphone in my cup holder. I thought that maybe somebody had lost their phone. I tried to turn it on, I figured I could go to its address book and call "home" and maybe find its owner. It never would come on, so I took the battery out to see what was wrong with it. The memory chip was gone. Somebody had stole a new cell phone in the Hub and upgraded themselves to a new phone. I gave it to my OMS, she said they would just send it out to Overgoods.:angry:

    It maybe a long shot but LP should have a crack at trying to catch the thief and let the Least Best, paid over people alone.

    I can not imagine a person jeopardizing a career over a cell phone or an electronic game.

    We had a reloader fired to stealing a cheap t-shirt. Box going to Walmart broke open, full of bright orange novelty "Reese's Pieces" shirts. Reloader runs to the bathroom with one stuffed under his hoodie, and comes out two minutes later with the BRIGHT ORANGE T-SHIRT peeking out from under his sweatshirt. Needless to say, LP escorted him off property.

    Anyone else see the irony in Grand Theft Auto being stolen?

    Believe it or not there are people out there getting a job at UPS just for the reason of stealing. And we all know UPS hardly ever presses charges, which means no criminal record.

    Sadly true. Keep an eye out in the bathrooms they often hide their stash in a bathroom for retrieval later.

    Good point, The tiles in the bathroom in my building are removable which makes it very easy for thieves to "stash" something for later pickup, BUT they fail to wipe the heel marks off the toilet seat, lol.

    My Hub handles a large cell phone warehouse. I find stolen phones all the time in the bathroom. They like to stash them in the toilet paper holder too. And we got this account because they had a bigger theft problem with Fedex and DHL........

    I had to separate a lot of young kids for stealing video games and sports memorabilia such as jerseys. At our airport operations - we have clean in and clean out security.

    I would watch them actually cry hard and beg for another chance. I would tell them to remember this experience and learn from it if you ever got the feeling to steal again.

    We had a driver fired for stealing a DVD a few months ago. UPS actually called the state police and had the guy escorted off the property.

    The punks they hire now aren't thinking about a career. They want a check and as much stuff as they can carry out of there.

    Our buddy sober up thinks these thief's need health insurance and a larger starting wage.

    What a dumb reason to get fired....I heard people were already downloading (stealing) the game online before it has even been released
