    a supe told me this. I swear on the souls of my children and grandchildren. I had to laugh at him and told him that I started work at UPS at age 37 and already have had several houses, 2 Harleys , and about 15 cars from age 18 before I even thought of UPS.

    I also reminded him that UPS had not "given" me anything that was not negotiated by the Teamsters Union.

    I kind of have to disagree with you Orange. While the union did negotiate what we receive it's still not given to us. You have fulfilled your part of the negotiation by going in and busting your butt to earn those benefits.

    That one, and the old "you're lucky to have a job" is also a funny one. I purchased my home and cars before I ever went FT for UPS, sure I was working 2 jobs, but UPS isn't the only way one can earn a living

    Not long ago, a center manager making a push for labor manager had me in the office. Not only miserable but a whirlwind of stress. He pulled in two supervisors, and I had a steward with me. It was a big show and spotlight for him.
    Long story short, center manager was getting angry/agitated that he couldn't extract any response or emotion from me (can't get into what this was over, except an injury) , so he says
    "You know, there are plenty of jobs out there or you. Why are you still here? McDonalds is hiring, you could flip burgers, so why don't you go there?"

    "I like burgers too much, but I hate cardboard"

    Of the more than 40 management (center manager and oc Supervisors) that were in my center for my 37years only a few retired.Most were moved to another center and quit or were fired or out on medical.Most are trying to hang on long enought to make some money before their forced to move on to the next job,let alone to retire!

    I have tried to have empathy for supes but it is really impossible. people choose the life they have for the most part. repeat ( for the most part )

    Hey man, it ain't easy keeping our leg muscles from cramping up on highway rides. The A/C works against us. It gets so cold in that cab that our muscles get tight. It's work adjusting to these changes.
