    So a fellow driver yesterday was told via diad message, If you cant make it to that stop by 17:00 just sheet it as a futher del. This was a misload that he let them know about (3) hours earlier. Its nice when your boss tells you to be dishonest.I told him to sheet as missed. Thanks UPS mangament for leading by example.

    Sheet as future is what I assume you're talking about.

    I would then call the ethics hotline and let them know about it.

    Not dishonest if boss says to do it. Might be for the boss though.

    PASinterference Yes, I know I'm working late.

    I know of a driver who got fired for futuring a missed pkg. He got his job back when he proved he was instructed to do it. Nothing said to sup. Imagine that.

    We are often told not to sheet it,rather bring it in and give to an OMS and a FT supe will deliver on his way home . I refuse to do this,and unless someone gets the package from me before I leave area it's sheeted as missed.

    It is amazing how using all caps magnifies your lack of vocabulary, poor spelling and overall poor grammar and highlights your inability to put two words together to form a cohesive sentence.

    Be honest. You spellchecked your post at least twice so you wouldn't make the same mistake before you submitted it.

    I have been told to do the same thing, I just go ahead and record it as "missed". If they want to give me a warning letter for refusing to falsify delivery records they are more than welcome to.

    Wally,

    The term "working as directed" does not justify dishonest actions by an employee.

    The supervisors of a corporation are employees of the corporation just as the hourly employees.

    The do have more responsibility and limited authority over the hourly workers that they supervise.

    They do not have authority to direct employees to commit dishonest acts or violate the written policies of the corporation.

    Sincerely,
    I

    I had a misload the other day and got a very shady message that said "can you sheet your misload closed?? Thanks ". That is some shady ish right there. I replied " No. That is dishonesty."

    They make the rules (management). Perhaps, missed and future are now the same thing, how would I know? How they want something done is their call. No dishonesty on my part. I'm just doing as told.

    When "working as directed", its a good idea to put in remarks comments the intials of the supervisor that gave you the questionable directions. IE: as per AH
