    I am new the entire UPS driving scene but this has to be the stupidest question i get on a daily basis.

    UPS: UPS here: Here's your package mama/sir. I need a signature right here...
    Customer: What is it ?

    How the @%$@ should i know what YOU order?!

    get used to it...your gonna be asked that question A LOT! when you get your own route and are comfortable with your customers (and vice-versa) you can respond with more "creative" things.

    I just tell them I'm not allowed to open stuff anymore so I'm not sure what it is.

    It depends on my mood...But when I'm in a good mood I usually just say Not sure.

    However when I'm in kind of a bad mood I'll respond like "I have NO idea what it is" and make them sign for it

    "I don't know, but your wife/husband sure gets a lot of them!"

    Seriously though, get use to it. Every day, at least one person will say that. Get use to counting the days when you don't hear it.:happy-very:

    HA! That's just wrong!!

    At least "What is it?" is a better question than when the customer opens the door, sees you standing there with sweat beaded on your forehead and running down your face and your shirt completely drenched and asks "Is it hot enough for ya?"
    Those folks deserve a good slap upside the head!

    When they ask seriously and pause and look at me i normally say "I don't know but what i do know is it's yours. Have a nice day (as i walk briskly away)."
