Well, the company has done it again. Today, I got to see the new calender. Its got a title: "UPS2008-The story of a big idea". But the "big idea" isn't like the old company magazine of the same name. The theme is to how to market a designer laptop bag. www.francesandgrace.com. I started to get excited when I looked at the first month, but was soon disappointed. My idea of a nice calender has nice color pictures of beautiful outdoor scenes, for a UPS calender that would mean UPS people and vehicles at work in scenic places. Well, here goes: January: My favorite picture. A P800 driving by a house covered in snow in Crested Butte, where ever that is. I don't know how you folks up North work in conditions like that. February: Some corporate guy in front of his PC using UPS Delivery Intercept to get back something he screwed up. March: UPS boat going down the canal in Venice, Italy. I like that one too. April: Corporate types looking at a slide show. May: Asian guy using a pallet jack to move rolls of fabric around. June: The final product, a laptop bag. I'm not kidding. July: Photo shoot with model posing with laptop bag. August: UPS Freight truck on the interstate somewhere. September: Woman looking at laptop bag on her laptop PC. October: Picture of UPS plane tail. November: Picture of laptop bag in the front window of a store next door to a UPS Store. December: I like this picture. Its a Package Driver walking up to the front door of a house where the snow is piled up about five feet. Of course it is night, its probably Christmas Eve. IE decided to cut out some routes, so this poor guy is out late instead of being home with his family. Reminds me of the impending doom that is Peak Season. Number 33 for me, somehow we always are able to dig ourselves out and get the job done.
