    Secretly slip a bottle of Midol in their desk drawer. That should take the "edge" off and they will settle down.

    That's the "new and improved" UPS. Didn't you get the memo?

    I'm in Michigan too, and that sounds about like how it is in my center. :crying:
  6. try it on long island...when you are told to put it through your own insurance and not workers comp, even though everyone knows you got hurt at work.
  7. Our co-workers in California didn't like the standard lunch so they filed a lawsuit and won a lot of $. They wanted to key in their lunch and the courts agreed with them. As a result, we all have to key in our lunch if we take one and the times we key in have to be accurate. If we don't do it we'll be fired (and rightly so - it isn't that hard).

    THAT's what's going on.

    I don't know. It was meant to be funny............

  10. The day Midol gets taken off the market is the day I will no longer be able to stay married to my wife.

    I think what is going on is Wall St. Not only at UPS, take a look at some FedEx boards. Their employees are not happy either.

    Defcon 5 is a great way to describe our center. The new center manager told us today that there is the law, the UPS rule and my law. We are to do what he says regardless of what the law or UPS says.
    I cant get to specific, but we already have drivers threatened with their jobs in the few days that the new guy has been here. The problem is that the LAW says that the drivrs are correct, not the manager!

    I guess that might be why they want
    a new contract so early to be settled so they will have more time to just make life dam bad for all of us. you all know we all have someone to answer to why don't they?

    I assume it is. I went to the Midol website and they didn't say anything about being removed from shelves. As a side note, if you go to the Questions and Answers link, you'll find under the "Other Topics" link that Midol is not Kosher.

    I had two girlfriends in highschool that were Jewish. This explains a lot.

    THAT is what is going on.
