    This story doesn't make sense...If this just happened last week, how could he go through school , be released to drive by himself, get hurt, go to the hospital, be told he will never father a child and be out on pernament disability that fast? It shouldn't be disability, first of all it's workman's comp. Sound's alittle far fetched to me, too much happened to quick!!!!:confused:1 Parcel will alway's find a job for you within the company "BEFORE" they pay any life time disability!!!!! Anybody with anytime here know's that!!!

    This story is true maybe I would just assume with a injury like this and his current condition that he would never return to UPS as driver,its ok to disagree,I am just trying to help but I wont be posting anymore

    When you lift a dolly, lift it by the handles and not the eye. If you feel like you're going to drop it, let it drop.

    trucker, don't take offense. You've been around UPS to have thicker skin than that! :cool:

    Might just be puzzlement rather than disbelief, ok?

    Seems the guy would have been in shock, doesn't it? I've seen guys get hit in the privates with boxes and they go down in a hurry. Gotta remember at work to take time and be safe. Shortcuts get us hurt, then the company calls us stupid. dw

    Yeah, I'd have to agree. I've been hit once. Knocked the wind outta me for a good twenty minutes. A friend of mine got hit a couple times. Poor guy...first time, it was his unloader being a pain in the a**. Second time was a pole-type thing that fit in the system and came down the sort slide. He didn't even see it coming. Next thing he knew he was on the grating gasping for breath. -Rocky

    Speaking of ball buster stories

    Woman jailed for testicle attack
    A woman who ripped off her ex-boyfriend's testicle with her bare hands has been sent to prison.

    Amanda Monti, 24, flew into a rage when Geoffrey Jones, 37, rejected her advances at the end of a house party, Liverpool Crown Court heard.

    She pulled off his left testicle and tried to swallow it, before spitting it out. A friend handed it back to Mr Jones saying: "That's yours."

    Monti admitted wounding and was jailed for two-and-a-half years.

    'Pulled hard'

    Sentencing Monti, Judge Charles James said it was "a very serious injury" and that Monti was not acting in self defence.

    The court heard that Mr Jones had ended his long-term but "open relationship" with Monti towards the end of May last year.

    The pair remained on good terms and on 30 May she picked him up from a party in Crosby and went back for drinks with friends at Mr Jones's house.

    An argument ensued and Mr Jones said there was a struggle between them.

    In his statement, Mr Jones said she grabbed his genitals and "pulled hard".

    He added: "That caused my underpants to come off and I found I was completely naked and in excruciating pain."

    The court heard that a friend saw Monti put Mr Jones's testicle into her mouth and try to swallow it.

    She choked and spat it back into her hand before the friend grabbed it and gave it back to Mr Jones. Doctors were unable to re-attach the organ.

    In a letter to the court, Monti said she was sorry for what she had done.

    She said: "It was never my intention to cause harm to Geoff and the fact that I have caused him injury will live with me forever. I am in no way a violent person."

    The letter added: "I have challenged myself to explain what has happened but still I just cannot remember. This has caused much anguish to me and will do for the rest of my life."

    this guy must had his nuts laying on the ground to be crushed by the dolly. the dolly is heavy and you can hardly move it by bent your legs, it's just hard to even slip under it because it's already low to the ground.
