What do you do for fun on the job?

    Title says it all. I am sure most of your supes have read the book "Fish". And have stressed the 4 major points; choose your attitude, be present, make someone's day, and have fun. I personally subscribed to the have fun one the most.

    Both of these took place when I was a p/t supe and actually involved the same full time supe. The first was in the sort aisle. We had a box of silly string open up and couldn't find all of the contents. Well let's just say by the end of the day it looked like Spider-Man had visited the sort aisle. But the fun part came when I called my f/t to a door. Now I am sure your sort aisles are the same, above the unloader walk way. So I called him over to talk about a slow unloader. I told him to look at him...he turned around to tell me something and I unloaded a whole can of silly string all over him. Sorters, bulk drivers, and unloaders were laughing having a good time...as was he.

    The next time came when I was now on load side. Our center was hit with some early peak season volume and our f/t told me and another supe to load a wally. Now this came after the lawsuit that allowed p/t supes to get overtime pay. So we said we will load it when we feel like it. They were waiting for a pm driver anyway. He told us to do it now or "give him our badges." We laughed and said we were going home. So we left and we and hid in the wally behind some of the packages. Our f/t circled the wally about 3 times before he realized we were inside of it. We laughed, he told us to stop screwing around then he locked us inside...classic.

    So many fun times at UPS between the chaotic moments. Any others?

    I like to come into the building nude, then walk up to my supe and slap him and say "that's for last night, you fag!" That always seems to get a laugh.

    I don't do anything for fun, I just work and go home.

    I worked in possibly the worst HUB and shift (Ontario Pre-Load) and managed to have fun all the time. I have learned, from UPS, the more you have fun at work the more you will enjoy it and actually work harder.

    Fun at work?? What's that?

    Wouldn't doing that to the contents of a package be grounds for termination? I don't know...don't consider that funny at all. Someone owned those items and it was for sure not you.

    Sometimes to get a roar of laughter, I'll put a package on the belt label side down. ha ha ha

    Fun at work? Mutually exclusive concepts.

    To be honest? Make fun of our PT sup.

    "Ever worked construction?"

    "Of course"

    "Sewing doesn't count."

    No comment.

    But yeah, fun at work consists of conversations and not of doing things INSTEAD of working. Do sups have that much time on their hands?

    Nothing personal -

    You should have been immediately fired. Your SUP as well.

    What do you do with the stereos, TVs that are open?

    I was told on Day One not to touch anything in open pkgs. I would think that my $80K job is worth more than a $1.99 can of Silly String.

    I hit the "will contact as soon as possible" key in response to any any all messages I get on DIAD, gives me a thrill!

    I used to meet this fine girl on my rte behind the Kroger and give her some special customer service, but after a ride by my on car sup, I was told to reduce my customer contact time; had to give that up! It was fun while it lasted, tho!
