    Thought this could get a lot of peoples hair to stand up on end. What's the weirdest UPS rules you can think of?

    I was about to order the 'explorers hat' (mostly because I'd look sexy in it) but called my sup first. Since it's not 'ups' issued I can't wear it? However, it IS UPS brand. To me that just seems weird :biting:

    Since when can they tell you what you can and can't drink?

    Except alcohol, obviously!

    We are required to walk thru a metal detector that beeps every time the metal door opens or shuts. It is manned by an unarmed, 70 yr old "security guard" earning minimum wage who sits and reads the paper and ignores the beeping. It is for our safety, to prevent weapons from being brought into the building.

    I hope nobody signed that.

    Also, I've never pulled the mirror in. Afraid to lose my left arm.

    How do you push your mirror in? I have to pull mine in. But I was told to push not pull. I'm so confused!

    It really doesn't matter... Point is I'm not sticking my hand out the door blindly to move the mirror. Good way to lose an arm.

    Free toilet paper!

    Seriously is sad that there is a management person somewhere being paid to type up, copy and distribute "water certification forms". Can you say "trim the fat"?

    It really does matter as pushing is in your power zone and pulling is not.

    I always thought one of the strangest things was them insisting you call a truck a car. Another was being able to wear a UPS shirt home (or to the bar) but you had to change out of the pants before you left the building after work.
